The Bay Head 5K

Last week I volunteered as the photographer for The Bay Head 5K, a race that gives to the Kate Shea Foundation. Kate Shea passed away at the young age of 25 from Leukemia. My friend Meg is her sister. Some photos from the day...






Check out the WEBSITE for this great cause! I feel lucky to be able to be a part of it. It's a fantastic way to remember someone who was clearly loved by many and give back to the community!

Devin and Logan you were missed & we can't wait to celebrate with you asap!!!





an engagement story :-)

They say you fall in love when you least expect it...in my case, it involved declaring my singleness and dating rules and regulations on the Wendy Williams Show in January, 2010.
Fast forward to last night...May 17, 2011- a TUESDAY (the day of the week I considered jinxed) where Tristan changed that superstition forever...
and....
asked me to be his wife :-)
I woke up to 99 photos spread all over the apartment, each with a reason he loves me written on it. some sentimental, some silly- ALL AMAZING.
He then picked me up after work...in a taxi....
but, not just any taxi.
MY GRANDFATHER'S TAXI. Charlie Wexler was my favorite person in the universe, and he drove taxi 1G28 for his career. Somehow, Tristan got a hold of the cab with that medallion number, and asked me to take a ride in my grandfather's cab....
and inside of it, he asked me to marry him!!!!!!
We then went out to dinner, where my family and Tristan's family (who had never met) were!!
The night was perfect. Tristan is perfect. I couldn't be happier or feel any luckier and here are a few photos from the evening....



and no...we don't know when the wedding is yet ;-)

OH! and this morning I woke up to the photo with reason #100 on it...reason being, I said yes!
