  1. Very jealous, I love New York!

  2. Aw… I’ve always wanted to visit New York around Christmas. Thanks for sharing highlights!

    What a great time of year to experience New York. Glad you had a good time as well as a “shift in perspective.” Introspective getaways are often the best.

    • It’s weird because I lived there for 8 years. I reached the point where I under-appreciated the city. This time I fell back in love with her. So many turning points in my life were lived there. It’s impossible to not love what the city brought to my life. An distance and time are great tools to help me see that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have never been to NY. Someday I will and I hope it’s around Christmas. I am sooo loving that Hobbit poster!!!! It must have been even more spectacular in reality because the picture just blows me away.

  5. Great photo’s Looks a great place to Christmas shop.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Thanks! I did a lil shopping in Soho. Mainly for me. But how often can you buy someone the perfect gift that they are guaranteed to love? ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’m enraptured by what you’ve captured! I’m so excited about The Hobbit, and I love the festive decorations and the lights… and oh, the food. I can’t decide which theoretically I’d like best… I want them all ๐Ÿ™‚

    I loved seeing NY. Many years ago I did a girlfriends’ weekend at Christmas time with great friends. Now one of them is gone already. The pics remind me of that weekend and how much fun we had together.

    • I loved meeting you there a few years back. Aw, that’s amazing. Sorry one of them is gone. ๐Ÿ™ Glad my pictures brought to mind happy memories. Maybe we can meet up there in the spring or summer and have a day in the city? ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Too much fun. Feast everywhere: sights and even the food!

    AH! Pad thai — you reminded me of the Thai place we went near your friend’s place in January! Nom nom nom. Do you think you’ll make it to either BackSpace or WDC this year? I am (ambitiously) trying to make it to both.

    • Yup, that’s the place I ate at Pad Thai Noodle Lounge. I go every time I stay at my friend’s apt in Chelsea. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m doubtful on WDC. I’m planning to finish my third novel revisions and query in Jan/Feb. It’s a YA so I’ll probably do the New England SCBWI in May. If I’m in the city during either conference I’ll let you know. Maybe we can have a drink or dinner? It’s great to network and get your work out there. ๐Ÿ™‚ GO you!
