I { HEART } NY

To say I fell in love with that city would be a major understatement. I soaked up every sight, sound and smell like a sponge. And WOW was that city good to me! I was amazed at how comfortable I felt there and how incredibly kind the people are.

I haven't had a chance to go through my photos yet but I did snap several on my iPhone using the Toy Camera app {love it!}


{all photos by me and my iPhone}

Deb {my sis-in-law} was the ultimate tour guide - taking me to all the best local spots and the less crowded tourist attractions. We ate, drank and shopped our way through that island!

I'm so relieved to hear that it was so wonderful for you! Growing up in Chicago, I had never met a Chicagoan who LIKED New York; NY was terrible in comparison to our great Second City.
But over the years I've turned on Chicago; and I have been dreaming about NY as of late. I've only been once, for about 2 days when I was 13. My boyfriend is actually there right now visiting his brother, I'm incredibly jealous for not being there, too! Soon, I hope...

what a city eh? glad you had an awesome trip.

i've got to tell you - i recently bought an iphone and went back through your archives to find out about that music app you love so much - pandora. not available in canada... boooo! then today my iphone wiped out my entire conact book, in it's self and my mac... booooo.

while i'm trying not to get mad at the little bugger i can tell you i'm surely not having the same warm fuzzies for mine that you're having for yours.

hopefully i'll get there.

AHH - I day dream of NY every chance I get. I love everything about the city. Once you go you feel like a different person and are never the same. To say I'm jealous would be a major understatmenet.
