kinfolk magazine and new york city!
how are things?
all is great here
it’s lovely and warm
it’s crazy hot!
but it’s a welcome change
compared to the chilly,
but near perfect nights
we spent on the west coast.
i’ve got lots to share from that too
but today i wanted to chat
with you a little about
a project i got to working
on before we left.
it’s a collaboration with
tara of seven spoons fame
for the new and super great
we chat about it a little more below
but before we do on an unrelated note,
i need your help!
i’m off to new york later this summer!
(a surprise trip i only learned of this morning, eeep!)
our hotel and flight are booked
but i have questions for you.
where to eat? what to eat?
where to go?
i’d love suggestions for
restaurants, cafes, coffee shops,
delis, diners, and food trucks.
for bakeries, pastry shops
and grocery stores
for butchers, fish mongers
and places to get lost.
can you help?
A few words from Tara and me.
The magazine is all about the magic of the small gathering;
the coming together of those we cherish the most
in celebrations big and little,
or in the passing of simple hours in their company,
and the everyday moments that charm.
It was an idea close to our hearts and right up our alley,
and we were thrilled at the opportunity to be a part of it.
In an added bonus,
it gave us the perfect excuse for a collaboration
we’ve long wanted to do.
We wrote a story about two friends getting together
for breakfast or lunch on a weekday, eaten outside.
We sat on the steps in the sun
and laughed over cookies and bubbles,
messy sandwiches and berries,
and it was all pretty grand.
We hope you like it, we’re happy to share it with you.
Nathan brought together a stellar group for the project.
The magazine is both a print and online endeavour;
while the paper edition’s already sold out (!!)
fingers are crossed for a second run,
and here’s to enjoying the beauty of its pages on their site.
So thanks to everyone for their hard work,
we’re beaming to be a part of such a community.
Here’s to days like these and the many issues to come.
Kinfolk Magazine, issue one. Hip, hip.
