I haven't been this excited about an upcoming weekend in a loooong time.  Okay, to be honest the last time I was this happy about Saturday was a few weeks ago when we were celebrating Lucia's first birthday party.  But, I'm equally pumped for our agenda tomorrow and the few days that follow.

We're escaping the heat of NYC and heading down to the beautiful island of Nevis with the baby and some friends.  First we have to get through about seven hours of travel and plane changes with a toddler but the reward is completely worth it. 

I will be checking in while I'm away but in the meantime, here are some great links from around the web that you may have missed this week.  And, here are some photos from Lucia's birthday party last month.

Have you heard of Cinemagraphs? No? You're missing out!

Content ideas for your photo blog.

Ten traits of master marketers.

A vacation uniform?  Yes, please!

French photography and drawings.  Let's be honest, anything on Cool Hunting is amazing.

Yet another behind-the-scenes look at Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty...SO worth it.

Not a very flattering photo of yours truly but let's be honest...who care about me?  Check out my cute, expressive kid!  This is her "oh my GOD!" trick.  My dad taught her this so every time she sees him she puts her little hands up like this.  Adorbs!

Your Dad takes great pictures too, I thought you had your camera on a timer. Thought I'd have to get a timer like that one probably costs a mint
