Kitchen renovations in New Hampshire

Last weekend we started on the long awaited kitchen rennovation at our chalet in New Hampshire.  Most of the snow has now melted, so what better to do during mud-season than install a few new cabinets and paint the walls?  The pictures below show us unpacking the cabinets and then removing them to get ready for a new tile floor and some new cabinets later in the month.  More updates to follow....

Alex and Lucy's Wedding

We spent last weekend celebrating the wedding of Lucy Shalaeva and Alex Ferruzzi on Long Island, NY. We first met Lucy in Madison, WI when she was seven. We have each worked with her parents Evgenyi and Marina on various scientific endeavors over the years. We were reunited with them when we moved to Connecticut where they were both working at Pfizer.

The village of Huntington where the wedding and reception were held was quaint, with interesting shops and views to Long Island Sound. It snowed continually throughout the day making a lovely backdrop for a bride from Siberia.

We had a wonderful time at the wedding, and were very grateful to be able to share this special day with the bride, groom and their families.
