Hello all you lovelies, how are you on this sunny day? (well it is sunny here in Vancouver) )
I have been meaning to write about our trip to New York and am just now managing to put words on paper, rather on keyboard!
I know this is a cliche but I do love NY – we had the opportunity to visit at the end of September for my hubbie’s cousin’s wedding and it was a joy, pure joy. That is not to say that we didn’t have our challenges with our little people but even with that it was a fantastic time spent. We stayed in this groovy place in East Village called Bed and Coffee and I think if on a NY budget I would stay there again – we loved the East Village vibe. It was just up our street and a lot like Commercial Drive, our hood in Vancouver, except with many more people!
There were three highlights to our trip – my friend Nicole, the wedding and another friend John and his family. It was great seeing Nicole after so many years – we spent wonderful times together while in Armenia about 8 years ago now! Might I add that she is a fantastic jewellery designer – I will ask her to send me some of her designs to show you.
The wedding was fabulous, we enjoyed every minute of the reception as the kids were with a babysitter in the bride’s hotel room just round the corner from the restaurant.
and seeing John and his wife Eva after so many years was great too – they have three boys and two of them are already teenagers! How time flies… Eva is a filmmaker now and she has made ‘naughty’ short films about certain sexual fantasies for the London erotic shop, Coco de Mer. You can watch the films here but beware, they are a bit naughty and I love them!
I have a lot more to say about our NY trip and this has to be continued in the next few days as I am tired and sleep is calling me… You will notice that this post began in the morning and ended at nearly midnight tonight! Ah, the life of a busy part time working mother, you just have to love it!
