NEW YORK NEW YORK, IT'S A WONDERFUL TOWN


Jim and I had been wanting a trip to NYC so when the Tales of the Traveling Tote girls decided to meet there I knew it was the perfect time for a getaway. Meeting these blogging friends and husbands for the first time was so much fun and seeing Sarah again is always great. Jenna from The Painted Apron and Rita from Panoply couldn't make this trip and were sorely missed. 

Meeting Friday at Fonda

Linda from More Fun Less Laundry ~ It was her birthday
Another good reason for a get together! 
Happy Birthday Linda 


Cinnamon Toast, it was delicious




After a wonderful brunch we were invited to tour the Bear Lounge with it's bear aquarium



Time to capture memories of friends and a wonderful time in the city!





And, admire this amazing egg tree with Faberge inspired eggs








After our delicious brunch we walked the few blocks to The MacKenzie-Childs
 store for champagne and cake set up on the mezzanine 











A wonderful time we all enjoyed! Saying goodby until next time 




Autumn is a delightful time to be in the city!
 I'll be posting more on my trip in a later post with TTT. 





Cheers! 


Thanks for your visit.  I appreciate each and everyone of you and enjoy knowing you stopped by. I hope you will leave a comment so I know you were here.

  2. What a glorious time! Fun to see several of my blog buddies getting together and living it up in the Big Apple! It looks like a glorious time and you all look so darned happy. But of course, you were! I wasn't surprised to see your visit to Mackenzie Childs but the cake and tea had to be the best and loved the photo of your team totes! Oh Emily, this is what blogging brings us -- not just a venue to share but a venue to make real life friends as well as virtual ones.
