whimsyandspice Found this photo of the Yaffa Cafe mural in my archives. Glad I took a photo of it back in April because it's gone now. One of those neighborhood icons in the East Village that you thought would never go away, particularly since so much on that block is gone since I lived there back in college. It survived most of those places. It was an anchor on St. Marks since the 80s. I'd walk up and down the length of St. Mark's a few times a day from my apt near Ave A. up to Cooper Union passing by all the familiar storefronts: cafe Mogador, St. Marks Theater, Sin-e Cafe, Dojo, the Sockman, Kim's, Trash and Vaudeville. Though the Yaffa mural wasn't around till a few years after I lived there, it became my favorite thing on St. Marks. #DisappearingNY #EastVillage #StMarks #yaffaCafe #NYC #nostalgia 2d

whimsyandspice Pumpkin picking cancelled this weekend due to a twisted ankle (the kid's, not mine). Looks like we'll buy one at the farmers market instead this year. Home bound this Sunday to rest up the ankle, but home days once in a while are good. A chance to stay in pajamas, transition closets from summer to Fall for good, and watch movies. Also, a new blog post. #sunday #lazy 4d

whimsyandspice Tonight I'm wondering whether it's worth it. To be open and transparent and write about things that are personal. I've received so much comfort and support from readers and it's helped me get through the past 4 months more than I could express. I've also gotten my fair share of mean blog comments over the years but nothing like the one I read tonight. This isn't about developing a thick skin if you're willing to put yourself out there. I know this and can take the criticism. But this went straight for the heart. I hope this person finds compassion in their lives one day. 2w
  •   joiebutter Jenna I'm so sorry. Her words seemed so deliberately cruel. You have every right to heal as you see fit and to care for your own family. I'm so sorry you had to read that. Sending you love and peace. 1w
  •   bookhou Oh Jenna I don't know what's wrong with people who leave hurtful comments - your blog is one of my favourites because of your honesty, I have had my share of nasty comments too and as much as I tell myself screw them - it still hurts and lingers, sending you warm thoughts and big hugs 1w

  •   cococakeland Jenna I've followed your writing and blog for years now and you are one of the best, truest writers out there. I'm so sorry you had to deal with that. There's so many lovers and supporters vs that one very small and ignorant person. Sending ️ to you. 1w
