We really can’t believe September is coming to an end. This month just flew by! We wouldn’t mind it if things slowed down just a little bit.
We took these photos a while back with our friend Ally, who was in town visiting from Kansas City. That same night, we met up with an amazing group of creatives at a local instagram meet-up that some of our friends had organized. The meet-up was held at SoZo Coffehouse, which donates a percentage of all sales back to local and international charities. It was a fantastic night filled with beautiful jazz music and such a great sense of community.
Since moving to Arizona, we have met so many people from all over the US; some who have been born & raised in Arizona, but most who have either been passing through or who have relocated here. It’s always fun to hear their stories and bond over old bands we would listen to, places to eat and, get some recommendations on local spots to check out. Growing up in Long Island, it seemed many people were from the same few, neighboring towns. We really have been so inspired by everyone we have met and it has really given us the desire to explore all these amazing places we keep hearing about. Hopefully the fall will be filled with many new adventures.

Fall is approaching and we’re happy to say we made it through our second summer in Arizona. The summer ending in Phoenix doesn’t really change much. Our temperatures are still hovering around 100 degrees and it’s still totally okay to put on a bathing suit and enjoy the sunshine. While we definitely do crave the cooler weather that is ahead of us, we really enjoyed a warm Sunday morning, walking along the river together.

Since moving to Phoenix last summer, Roosevelt Row has quickly become one of our favorite places. We can’t rave enough about the art, restaurants, and wonderful people we have met in that area. There’s a great spot with little old homes turned into independently owned shops. Book stores, with the most unique selection, clothing stores, featuring local craft makers, and an amazing little ice cream shop called, Melt. The other night we headed out to enjoy the atmosphere of this perfect little area and grab a few scoops of our favorite ice cream. (Birthday cake and Cookies-n-cream!)
When we lived in New York, we would always make time for these evening walks. It’s always been a great way to unwind and talk about our day together. It’s nice to be able to continue this tradition here in Arizona, in a new favorite spot. It’s always special taking an evening walk together and indulging in a sweet treat after a busy week.

We had a lot of fun the other day shooting some photos for Project Ten, with our friend Sarah. Project Ten consists of a group of several photographers who participate in photo challenges every month; this month their theme was “delicate”. It was so fun collaborating with Sarah and watching her vision come to life. We felt these photos had a bit of irony to them. They are soft, delicate and calm. Lately, things have been anything but calm around here. We have been working around the clock, nursing an injured foot, and recovering from a pretty scary car accident. Some where in the mix of that all we had an amazing weekend with some family from out of town, which was a real treat. We’ve been trying to take it easy and reflect a bit, have quiet nights and remind ourselves to slow down. We couldn’t be more thankful for these days together.

Lately we have been trying to get back to basics. Keep things simple. It’s amazing what you can accumulate, even after you have sifted through everything and only brought your “favorite” things across the country with you. We spent the last few days taking it easy at home and straightening things up a bit, decluttering if you will. A clean and organized space always makes us feel better. We’ve been feeling the same way with our everyday looks as well. Simple, classic pieces have been our go to, lately. And who can resist a wide-brim hat like this?

Our love for Arizona just keeps growing. When we decided to move here, we didn’t know much about the state, but our hearts were full and ready for an adventure. Little by little we are really learning our way. With autumn just around the corner we couldn’t be more excited to pack our bags and travel up north! We can’t stop thinking about feeling the chill in the air, the leaves changing and cozying up together.

The weather here in Arizona has been pretty amazing lately. Either that, or we have officially become used to summer in the desert. We have been taking full advantage; getting up early and spending a lot of time outdoors. It gives us the opportunity to get the most out of our days.

Lately, it has felt like we have been non stop…work, appointments, birthdays. You name it! At night we collapse on the couch to cuddle up and talk about our day together. Luckily, last weekend was a pretty perfect one. We woke up without the sound of an alarm clock, rolled out of bed and got ready to start the day together. We’ve been working on some really fun projects. One of which, with our friend Hannah. She asked us if she could photograph us on a typical weekend. Ofcourse we said, yes! We’re so lucky to have such talented friends and this project has been a real treat. We’re happy to share a little sneak peek of what she’s working on. Hannah shot some photos of us at one of our favorite places, Pomegranate Cafe. It was one the first places we discovered when we moved to AZ. The food is always super fresh and the staff are all so sweet! We each tried something new; the Breakfast Burrito and the Wild Western Tacos. It’s safe to say lunch dates are truly our favorite!
