Since my wee ones are sick and our routine is a bit on its head this week, I thought I should finally do my big New York post.
Whew. It's been a whole month since the trip, and I don't want to do too much description of it -- just share photos.
It was fantastic to spend the weekend in New York with my mom. The weather was glorious until the morning we left, when it became chilly and foggy.
We did some shopping -- mostly on Erin's recommendations.
I had my very first blog meet-up, with Kristin, who came into New York for the morning on one of the days we were there. I can't believe how amazing it was to connect face-to-face with someone I'd met through blogging. It just keeps astounding me as I think about it! She gave me a sweet birthday gift, which I just realized I haven't photographed yet. I'll fix that later today.
And we had lunch one day at Serendipity3, because I just had to go there -- for the touristy thing, too. (And my sandwich was so good that I'm still thinking about it.)
We stopped at Purl and Purl Patchwork. The girls in Purl noticed that my bag was made with Joelle's fabric, though the girls in Purl Patchwork did not! I got a little bit of Liberty of London fabric to make a little something for my girl.
There is nothing like April in New York.
We walked -- a lot. We rode the subway -- not quite as much. And we took some cabs, too.
We nearly saw the Pope, who was visiting at the same time, but just missed his motorcade.
Best of all, we saw Satyagraha at the Met (click that link and watch the 4-minute video! It's amazing!), which was one of the most inspiring experiences of my life. Really and truly. It was beautiful, and just esoteric enough for me. ;)
It was a great trip.
