Happy Thanksgiving! It's a sunny cold day here in Buffalo, New York. The sun is sparkling on the new snow - I love the early snows, when it's still clean and pretty (about March it gets old though!) I'm reflecting on the day - I'm thinking of God's goodness and all I am thankful for today, but I try to do that EVERY day, so this doesn't feel like the one day that I'm thankful.
I'm especially thankful today to have one of my sons in the house! And I'm thankful that Jeremy and Becca are together and doing well in California AND thankful that we get to see them for a few days next week. I'm thankful for my mom and dad and wish we were altogether for the holidays. I'm thankful for our friends, the Russells, who are including us once again in their family Thanksgiving celebration.
I'm thankful too for the ladies who came to NYC with me over the weekend - each one of them is such a blessing to me. I'm humbled that they travel with me and trust me with their plans. I'm truly grateful for the blessing of knowing all these interesting women and that a thing like scrapbooking brought us all together.
Last Friday was our first "official" day of our trip. We started off in the rain and COLD at the Today Show.
After a warm snack at Bouchon, we were off to the subway and the Highline and Chelsea Market.
Love the sculpture in the subway - isn't that the legend - alligators in the sewers?!
The Highline is so much prettier when the sun is shining and it's not 30+ degrees!
That afternoon we did a landmark photo tour with Citifari. We divided into two groups, each with our own professional photographer. It was really fun and helpful to compose photos with a different eye - and to get my camera into manual mode! This is some of the photos I shot...
We came around the corner at Macy's and this is what we saw in the middle of Broadway!
They were showing the movie "Miracle on 34th Street" on 34th Street. How cool is that!
We stopped and took our picture at Lord and Taylor...
We walked on to the New York City Library and Grand Central Station...
We took the subway to Union Square where I got to see my "fake" son "Steve" (really his name is Imar) who I've seen at the waffle stand every year. He always gives me a big hug and we pretend that we know each other.
We did some shopping and ended the day with dinner at a nearby restaurant. Our feet were tired but we had a blast!
I hope you're having a good day on this Thanksgiving with those you love! God bless you all!
With love, Debby :)
