Well friends, today’s the day! I’m off to New York City to meet up with some blogger friends and attend The Nate Show on Tuesday thanks to an extra ticket provided by the very gracious Janell. I’m flying out and bunking with fellow Bay Area blogger Cristin, and we are going to have a ball! I haven’t been to New York City in four years, so today I’m absolutely grinning from ear to ear because I get to spend a few days in one of my favorite places on earth!
My first trip to NYC was in 2001, just two months after 9/11. What I still find eerie is we had plans to be in NYC during that fateful week in September, but for various reasons switched our plans at the last minute and postponed our trip until November, not knowing that NYC would suffer the incredibly tragedy it did that day.
I have loved NYC ever since I first set foot in this marvelous metropolis. On our first trip, we did all the touristy things. We visited all the museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art; we walked Fifth Avenue and browsed at Tiffanys; we visited Times Square, the New York Stock Exchange and Greenwich Village, we ate a famous restaurants; we visited Radio City Music Hall and climbed to the top of the Empire State Building.
Central Park in fall is like living in a Nora Ephron movie!
