Pun intended! I arrived here in New York City to the most glorious sun-shiny days! I soaked in the sun! There is almost nothing better than New York on a perfect day, but then it's payback time and on Monday the rain came and got soaked with water! (At least my feet did.)
On Friday I walked and stopped into some favorite shops like Laduree on Madison Avenue,
stopped by Central Park and sat on a bench to do some people-watching,
walked and window-shopped on 5th Avenue,
and just had a great time! On Saturday, I taught two classes for The Ink Pad at the classroom they rent in the Village. It was a lovely day and I met so many nice ladies... I look forward to returning someday!
That night I had dinner at one of my favorite spots, Joe Allen, and then fought my way through the crowds in Time Square. Crazy with how many people are here!!
On Sunday I met up with Michelle and her daughter Kailie who had flown from San Diego and had a fabulous breakfast at The Standard Grill in the Meatpacking District and then walked a little ways on the High LIne. Just perfect!!
We could have spent the day here but there was more things to see , so we hoped in a cab and went to SoHo and went to some of our favorite spots there and a couple new places like Opening Ceremony... love their stairs that greet you and the wall as you leave...
It was a great day... I'll have more pictures soon... just random favorites from the city and then lots of pictures from the Staionery Show yesterday!
