get the look

Are you a country mouse or a city mouse? I guess I would say I’m a country girl. After I graduated from college in Washington, DC I was dying to have a home of my own and when I pictured what it would look like I just didn’t think “city”. I think thats why Frank and I ultimately settled in the town of Bronxville, NY after college. I still can’t believe we bought a place in the suburbs at the age of 22 (EEEK!). It ended up being the best of both worlds because after a less than 25 minute train ride we would find ourselves in the middle of NYC. Similar to the length of time it takes to get from Brooklyn to Grand Central. For me it was perfect.

I grew up less than 10 miles from the property that the Stone Barns Center and Blue Hill Restaurant now sit on. Back then it was just a whole lot of preserved land donated by the Rockefeller family. Not much more to see than a few cows, a lake, and lots of trails. We went so often I memorized the paths, the trees, I could even recall where the rocks were. Frank and I have been going to Blue Hill long before we had kids. I’ve posted about it before so I won’t go on and on but its such a happy place for me. Last Friday I was shooting some pictures for an upcoming collaboration and decided to bring Harrison. I think these are my favorite yet…
