I thought it would be appropriate to post a pic of these adorable wedding-themed boxes from Teuscher chocolates (620 5th Avenue – near Rockefeller Center). You can buy them here. Happy Pride! Tweet

  • Sagrada Família Sketch!

    This is a quick sketch I did of our visit to Barcelona’s Sagrada Família. A must see if you ever visit. As astounding as the exterior design is, the interior with its glorious stained glass windows and forest-like columns is equally stunning! Tweet

  • Tapas and Sangria at Plaza Mayor!

    Here’s us cats having tapas and sangria at one of the outdoor restaurants at Madrid’s Plaza Mayor. It reminded me of the setup at the Grand Place in Brussels. Gorgeous buildings, cobblestones, touristy, but fun. At this point I was majorly jet-lagged but the tapas and sangria revived me! Tweet
