It is such a cliche to love New York, no? Is there anyone out there who does not find it magical, inspirational, annoying, and irresistible? I mean, sure, there might be some people who hate the place, but I haven’t met that person yet.

For the first time in my life, I live close enough to “The City” that it’s not really a big deal to pop in and out for a day. It is awesome. I love it that on the roads I travel most around my neighborhood there are signs pointing to New York City. It is always tempting to make that turn and just head there for no reason.

I was sort of joking when I suggested to a friend that we should go bra shopping in New York because… well, because why the hell not? Thankfully, she took me seriously and on Friday we took off and spent the day shopping, walking, talking, eating.

It was glorious.

In no particular order:

1. Number of bra and panty sets purchased: 3
2. Last time I owned matching bras and panties: Never.
3. Earrings: 1 pair
4. Fancy hair thingy to get away from boring ponytails: 1
5. Size of steak we shared at Wolfgang’s: Who knows? It was ginormous.

6. Manhattanhenge! 



7. And on the other side of the street: crazy Moon!


8. Cigarettes smoked: 2
9. Last time I smoked a cigarette: 15 years-ish, at least.
10. Blisters on feet after walking all day: 2
11. Frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity: YUM. Must be some kind of witchcraft.

And finally: finding a new friend in a new city and traveling so well together: totally and completely priceless. Calendar marked for our next trip!

    Today you will meet that person: I am not a huge fan of ‘The City’. But I’m glad you had such a lovely day!

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed my city!!!

  3. I love New York…for about 28 hours but then I start to feel like I’ve eaten nothing but dark chocolate and drunk nothing but espresso and I must get out.

    Not cliche! Or at least nothing to be ashamed of. 😉 There are tons of books and movies and shows set there for a reason. Though I do have to admit that I’m taking a break from novels set in Brooklyn.
