“be inspired and know that you are doing enough”

that simple tagline is all it took to make me a complete addict to the amazing site of moomah! {thank you erin kalb for pointing me in the direction of this little gem created in the heart of tribeca.}

living in the city, there is always … ALWAYS something to do, see, experience right at your fingertips. upon moving to brooklyn, i made a vow to myself that we would take advantage of all that the city had to offer us throughout our time here. that vow, although well intentioned, gave me permission to place a standard so high for what our days {in my idealistic mind} should consist of and as i am sure one can assume … that lovely little vow backfired on me {already … yeah … i’ve only lived here a week}! with my little ladies in bed and a glass of wine in hand i found myself glassy eyed staring at nyc event calendars, local mom websites, etc. to ensure that sophie + hazel {and myself} were getting the most out of big city living.

after perusing through moomah, i was reminded that inspiration and creative experiences are not fostered through all things planned – in fact it is rather the opposite!

today we had a lovely date with our friends amelia + anna drake daniels who are living in the city for a short time as they escape hurricane season in the british virgin islands. {you can read more about their adventures on island hopping.} we began our day shopping in soho as she introduced me to c. wonder. upon walking in to the store i watched as sophie’s eyes began to light up and asked to use my iphone to take photographs of colors, displays, patterns that inspired her {yeah … she really did … pretty sure she stepped in as teacher on my self-taught course on how to foster your child’s creative spirit.} upon returning home she grabbed her crayons and began drawing things based on all that had inspired her little creative spirit during our time in soho.

today was simple in nature but completely eye-opening for me. i can learn a lot from sophie + hazel. their ability to see beauty and creativity in so many {day to day} things is allowing me to view a much bigger picture of this amazingly diverse city that we now call home!
