brooklyn, brooklyn take me in

how much do i love brooklyn? what a fabulous trip we had. the only thing that would have made it better would have been a few extra days for peter and me to explore it on our own.

this post is largely images, with a video to give you a little background music as you peek through them. there are so many photos [even after narrowing and narrowing] that i recommend you "jump" through and look at all of them together. 

every time i visit brooklyn feels more and more like a place i'd want to live.
maybe one day...

our trip started out a little rough as usair let us down in a big way by canceling our flight. instead of leaving saturday afternoon, we left sunday morning at 8. i had to wake up at 3:30 sunday morning in order to get myself and the girls ready to leave and meet the guys by 4:45. it's a good thing that our rough start turned into a great trip anyway!

while in brooklyn our group not only saw a lot, and had a lot of fun. we also worked with the fifth avenue committee, and we got our hands on eight different apartment buildings. we finished painting 3 or 4 completely, and started the process on the rest. [to find out more about fifth avenue committee check out their website, here.] 

there is so much more i could tell you, but for now suffice it to say - 

i can't wait to go back.
