By the time you read this, I’ll be at cruising altitude. My destination?  

New York City!!!

It’s kind of a long story, but I’ll be in the big apple until Tuesday night, shooting a print ad campaign for a large allergy medication corporation. Who would have thunk it – having allergies has finally paid off!! :D

I’ve been to NYC once before, in 2006 (PB – pre blog), with Ben and his family, and I think this pretty much sums up how I feel about the place:

I adore New York. There’s so much to see, do, taste, experience, watch and ENJOY! I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely for me – I could spend weeks here, exploring and experiencing. I just love it! Here’s a little re-cap of my 2006 trip:

There was an unforgettable dinner in Little Italy,

The afternoon spent lounging in Bryant Park,

And taking in the awesomeness that is Rockefeller Center.

NYC is too cool for school, and while I won’t have much free time while I there – I’m just excited to be in its presence!! :)

I hopped on board my jet @ 7am with breakfast on tow:


Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar, Navel Orange and a Banana.

My stomach always gets sensitive when I fly so keeping it light with this breakfast, and drinking mucho amounts of water, will set me up to feel as good as possible when I arrive.

I’ll be busy through lunchtime, but will catch you all up from the east coast as soon as I can. Until then – NYC OR BUST!!!

Happy Monday!
