we had such a magical and busy time experiencing all NYC has to offer (including meeting some of you fabulous girls!) that i seriously had to cut down our hundreds of photos.
we were incredibly lucky to have Karina share not only her home but her wonderful family with us. who am i kidding, she is family... from the very start when we met a year ago on blogger we felt that way and all four days we were in NYC, we were all inseparable. I'll gush about her tomorrow but for now i had to share bits and pieces of mine and twinkie's trip!
the first night we were in NY, Kary took us all around the wonder that is Time Square
while in NY, i also had a blog/real life dream come true... i finally got to meet a kindred spirit, the beautiful meg fee. we had super yummy organic vegan dishes at Candle Cafe.
i love this photo because obviously i'm smitten with her, but it truly shows how fun it was to meet someone you feel like you know (as she pointed out, it was as if we were in "freshman 101" together when we first starting this blogging world). I am so thankful that even as her blog grew to the thousands (because how powerful are her words? like this recent post... oh perfection), she is so down to earth which made me adore her even more.
we were so sad to miss the start of the blogger meet-up in Central Park (thanks to the Sunday train schedule out of Hawthorne, NY were we were staying at-- near to my older sister's work conference) but thankful to meet the girls that were still around.
i was glad to finally meet Summer!
i love this photo of marianne and lady liberty
former reporter, he didn't have to ask me twice (we laughed about this!). It was pretty symbolic to be visiting NY during such an announcement.
and if we're going to do all the sights of NY, i insisted we get a sister's photo with the Naked Cowboy!!! (that's our older sister Maria next to me and kary) i LOVE Kary's expression when she saw us do the grabbing.
it's amazing how fast four days goes and how much you cram into them when you're seeing NY for the first time.
i wish we had more time to meet up with everyone which is all the more reason to start planning our next trip-- especially when we did all the sight seeing on this one.
So for all the fabulous NYC bloggers i didn't get to meet this trip, next time let's promise! xo
