Girl walk all day and night

Girl walk all day and night

I don't often find myself at a church on a Sunday night, but I headed over to St. Paul's Chapel for a screening of Girl Walk // All Day, the feel-good movie of the year. To summarise, it's the story of a people dancing through the streets of NYC for a day. You can't watch it and not dance.

Scott and Leah Go Swing Dancing

In spite of the bitter chill of December, I managed to get Leah out for a bit of swing dancing. As expected, she’s a natural, and by the end of the night was moving like Ginger Rogers. Live music and Thai food made it a fun evening all around.

Jay and Steph’s Wedding, 3/3

We’re still at the reception, but stepped out into the sun for a moment of garden hijinks. Charlie, Pete, and I sat posed for a minute, taking advantage of the setting to capture a cheeky moment.

Back inside for a few more photos. Missed eating the actual cake, I’m afraid.

Jay and Steph’s Wedding, 2/3

After sweating it out in the summer sun, we shuffled our way into The Manor for cocktail hour, during which all manner of goodies were available to us. Never before have I seen a full carving station during a supposed cocktail hour.

And in we go. Dancing, laughing, snapping photos, giving speeches, catching up, gossiping, pretending to be Michael Jackson (just for a second), and stuffing our faces with some truly excellent food.

The photos tell the story, I suppose. Except they can’t illuminate the sporadic nature of the DJ, who changed songs every 35 seconds and spun such wedding classics as “Baby Got Back” and messed up the names of the wedding party at least 3 times, by my count. So aside from that the day was rather smooth.

Easy, Charlie, don’t take her arm off …

Can’t see my feet, ’cause they move so fast …

Let them eat cake …

Midsummer Night Swing

After years of saying “oh, I should have gone to that”, I actually went. To Lincoln Center, that is, for some outdoor swing dancing and fanfare with live music. Some old faces, many new ones. Who says swing dancing is out of style?

I’ll probably go again later this month, if not this week.
