you come to new york to find the ambiance that will evoke your best.

There is something special about New York City. It is easy to fall in love with the energy of the city, the bustle of the crowds, and the awe inspiring sights.


Recently, my family spent some time in New York to celebrate my Mom's birthday. It was a good trip, but as many do, it felt too short! I spent some time writing in Central Park, went to the fashion museum at FIT, saw Evita - staring the absolutely perfect Ricky Martin - on Broadway, and did some shopping!

Here are some of my pictures from the trip!





















Up next - my New York shopping haul!

Have you ever been to New York? What did you think of it?
