In New York….

by jacin on September 29, 2011

….these streets will make you feel brand new; big lights will inspire you….

{Rodney Smith Photography}

That’s right, I’m in the city that never sleeps and it feels so good to be “home” back east, eating bagels and pizza and sipping bottom-of-the-pot Dunkin Donuts. Oh New York, I’ve missed you.

My plans, besides eating, include:

…reuniting with my love, who has been here since last weekend!

…meeting with this little lovely for happy hour (that turned in to 4 hours!)

…visiting the rents in CT (and possibly getting in some sparkle time)

…hoarding macintosh apples from the local orchards to bring back to CA with me (don’t judge)

…meeting a BFF’s new baby and spoiling him with goodies

…celebrating a very special wedding with dear friends

…brunch at one of my most treasured spots, if we have time

and enjoying the beginning days of fall in one of my favorite places on earth!

Hope you all have a great weekend! See ya back here on Sunday :)

Jacin- I don’t get to read your blog nearly enough, but every time I do, it makes me smile! I am sooo jealous that you’re in NYC and getting to meet (in person) some of my fav bloggers. Let me know whenever you’re down in the dirty South ;) Would love to meet you!
