New York City is magical, as was seeing all my friends together (we all got together Saturday night for dinner in Brooklyn--12 of us!--some friends from childhood, college, grad school, etc. etc.). Summer has those pics on her camera, so I will post them as soon as she sends them to me (ahem, Summer).
But here's a summary of my trip, in photos:
Summer and me out exploring
In Times Square, right after we exited the biggest Forever 21 in the freakin' world (5 floors?)
how delighted was I to spot a dress made out of cards??
me with itty bitty Baked by Melissa cupcakes
seriously, they are about the size of a quarter!
Summer and Adam's boys
Radio City Music Hall
The closest I came to Carrie Bradshaw was visiting the Patricia Field store
(where I fell in love with a gold glitter iPhone case)
check out the marquee--the Bronx zoo cobra was on the loose!
btw, if you don't follow @BronxZoosCobra on twitter, you're seriously missing out
a morning alone in Union Square . . .
. . . where I spotted these precious school babies!
if you live in NYC, run there pronto!
we had broccolini & margherita pizzas
and love bomb cocktails!
Marisa and me at dinner--old friends!
Make it work!
my college friend Peter in his office at Kensington Press
(I'm suffering from job envy: he reads fiction manuscripts all day & decides whether or not to publish them!)
in the theater district
(I love how the light is shining on the "i")
Simon & Schuster, for those of us obsessed with literary presses
taken from the Brooklyn Bridge
(oh how I wish this were properly centered)
walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, heading to Grimaldi's
aka the best pizza in NYC
goodness gracious alive, this pizza is good
I love this picture of Summer with the "Live Your Life" sign in the background
Aside from a couple mishaps (including losing my phone & having to buy a new one), it was a phenomenal trip. Summer was the best hostess ever (as was my dear Marisa, whom I stayed with one night!). I wish I'd had more time so that I could have spent more time with everyone . . . but all the more reason to make NYC a yearly vacation!
Hope y'all had a wonderful week. I'm glad to have returned to the blog world! Happy Monday.
