The Pigeon Party {showing some love for NYC + the dirty bird}

The NYC Pigeon gets no respect. Dirty Birds. Flying Rats.
My little chimps are in love with the Pigeon series of books by the brilliant Mo Willems. They are ridiculously silly, a little fresh, but also quite charming.
Pigeons are indeed dirty urban beasts, but in stuffed animal form, I think they are kind of cute:) And lovable enough to plan a party around them.

I Seriously Heart New York. I am a lova of all the beauty and dazzle our city has to offer. I could think of no more fabulous reason to have a party- to celebrate serious New York love + adoration with a dash of pigeon:) Come on, you know it's funny.

Some very special guests were invited for a breakfast rave. It was a rainy Sunday morning-had to pull everything inside that morning. It was funny + sunny inside and  a perfect way to spend a Sunday morning with adorable people we love so much.

As the 10 Year Anniversary of September 11, 2001 approaches, our brave + resilient city is always on our minds and the beautiful people we lost are always in our hearts. We will never forget. Ever.

Enjoy the Pigeon Palooza. Come on, it's really funny:)
