New York, I love you.

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 

and! how is this for a NY experience? i got interviewed in Battery Park by WPIX-TV. ha! (too bad i wasn't wearing any make-up!) It was so funny because the other girls ran so fast as soon as they saw the news crew but being a 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

NYC looks absolutely amazing. Ah-maz-ing.

I cannot believe you saw the cowboy guy! I thought he was famous now and had a tv show or something - clearly I am soooo outta the loop hahaha

That pic of marianne and the statue is just stunning!

Megan said...

Sarah said...

Ahhh! This looks like such an amazing fun time, and seriously, it looks like you were there for two weeks you packed in so many adventures! Next time I go I'll be asking you for tips. Glad you had an amazing trip. :)

Haylee said...

Ah how awesome would it have been if we would have been able to meet up while in NY? That definitely would have made my trip about 100x better.
Your pictures make me want to go back! Candle Cafe is the best, I went there back in August when I was in the city. Judging by your picture it looks as if we sat in about the very same spot too. :)
hahah LOVE the hand placement in the last pic. I definitely missed out on the naked cowboy experience.. dang! I guess just another reason to go back. :)

Leanna Vera said...

I LOVE all your pictures! You fit so much into your trip to NYC. Your group picture from the meet up turned out great!

Lauryn said...

I am so late seeing these photos, but it looks like you had an absolutely magical trip! You looks o happy in each of these photos. How did I not know you were a reporter?!

Amanda said...

I am officially booking a trip to NYC this year (perhaps in the Christmas season?). These pictures are just too good.

Love you in those skinny jeans, by the way. :)

Leesh said...

Looks like you had great fun! It's always nice to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

I can't wait for the day when i finally get to go to NYC.
