There are moments in your life where suddenly it is defined by something larger than you. Kurt and I have always flown by the seat of our pants. We some how manage to spend out more than we make and not have debt, we have moved 5 times in Iza’s 1st year, live out… Continue reading Guatemala, here we come!
There is something to be said for living in a hotel. Outside the sea of bodega’s, laughter and honking, inside a clean and magical space. Water pressure, outlets on every wall, etc. We are definitely not roughing it living in Spanish Harlem. We have a beautiful 3 bed, 2 bath apartment to end our Spring… Continue reading Spanish Harlem Living
I have a million resolutions to institute, but only 1 that truly matters: to live. I have spent the last 32 years fighting the reality of fate and at 33, it is time to give in and let what is meant to be, to simply be. Who knows where I will be in a year… Continue reading Rache’s New Years Resolutions 2014
So, we have taken on a challenge! We decided on renting out our house through Airbnb.com to make a little extra cash and to meet some totally cool people. We had a chance to already rent out a room to Nanna Kold and her family from Copenhagen. Great experience! Well, very quickly our landlord decided he didn’t… Continue reading Airbnb’ing it!
Welcome to 25 Henry Street, Beacon, NY 12508. Our new address, y’all! Before baby, when our landlord asked us what we thought we were going to be doing when our lease came up, we said, “We definitely are thinking to stay here. We love this place.” Within minutes of coming home from the hospital, we… Continue reading We are Moving!
It is totally amazing that I have turned a Bell’s Palsy corner! As Iza came into the world, all the pushing burst capilaries in my right cheek and above my right eye. My face was slightly speckled for a day and then I started to see a change back in my smile. My right eye… Continue reading Bell’s Palsy is Almost Kicked!
We have really gone to the ends of earth to make sure that we were prepared for Iza’s arrival… although, it might be impossible to plan, we wanted to be as prepared as possible. I still got Bell’s Palsy at my 7th month mark, but that was an indication of the stress that my body… Continue reading What We Have Learned…
What a day! Iza and I are totally and completely tuckered out. 5 appointments strong… there were moments when we thought it was going to last forever, but somehow we ALL managed. Our imaging specialist, Dr. Lascale said that we have a healthy, happy baby. The average size is roughly 3.75lbs right now, we are… Continue reading 32 Weeks… WOW!
I am so lucky to have this guy on my side. Serenading me with music, keeping my desk always with flowers and just generally being the best husband, friend and partner I could imagine. I sometimes have to stop myself for a second and think back to every other relationship I have witnessed along… Continue reading The Man of My Dreams
Either Iza is exceptionally good luck or Kurt’s work is really just that amazing… but every single show we apply for, he gets accepted to, gallery or otherwise. It is very exciting. May 10th-12th we are going to be in NYC for Kurt’s first big NYC show during NADA. NADA is the second largest show… Continue reading Kurt got accepted to PooL 13 in NYC!
What a wonderful surprise! I came home yesterday off the train from NYC and Kurt picked me up from the station with a bouquet of orchids and a lovely card telling me that I was the Best Momma Ever. Pretty sweet and thoughtful and the flowers are stunning on my desk. 🙂 I do… Continue reading A Beautiful Orchid from My Love
It has been years since I have had a proper vacation; a real shut down without any communication or interest in being a part of the technological pull. I would say that I am mentally, completely and utterly on a permanent vacation now. Some of it has to be pregnancy… but I would say the… Continue reading The End of One Era, the Beginning of a New Chapter

One of the major reasons we moved to Beacon and decided to stay was the DIA: Beacon. This is the absolute most inspiring place in the world for Kurt and I am just simply walking the halls of art with the vast white space and outrageous lighting gives us thousands of ideas. It is particularly… Continue reading Loving the DIA in the Winter
Kurt’s been accepted to his first shows… AMAZING! Yesterday he received news from BAU (Beacon Artists Union) that they have accepted him for a solo show in April. In addition he will also be in the Beacon Centennial Show in May. Today he met with Theo Ganz Gallery on the other side of Beacon and… Continue reading First Shows on the Books!
Well, well, well… if only the world were to stop and stand still for a few minutes, Kurt would relish in the entire experience of sitting and looking at his Golden Paint… just looking. Since receiving his precious paints he has been so prolific, developing new ideas, creating, etc. Also, in buying bulk we got… Continue reading A Golden Moment for Kurt
Out of request of Grammy (Rache’s beloved, vibrant Grandmother in Florida), we decided to make it official. The best part: We honeymooned in NYC (oh, and we think we will save a ridiculous amount on taxes)! Way better than the legalization element and definitely worth the hour or two dealing with paperwork. We have gotten… Continue reading And So We Did!
