For the past five days I’ve been enjoying the city of New York, first as a participant in the Weekend Sewing Workshop hosted by Heather Ross, and then for a few days of couple-y together time with Mr Rae, without kids (cue the “awww” or the “YAY” however you feel about it). This was my very first time in the city so I tried to hoof it all over the place rather than spend any time on my computer, hence my slightly-longer-than-usual online absence of late, which actually isn’t all that odd come to think of it but maybe somebody noticed. No? Good. Mental note: take more blog breaks.
So yesterday I walked from Chinatown to Little Italy to Soho (where I walked past Meg Ryan on the street, la dee dah) to Greenwich Village to Chelsea and I think maybe part of the Meatpacking District and then walked along the Chelsea Highline (an old elevated railroad-turned-long-skinny-park) from 9th to 19th street, and then walked back to the Chelsea Market and took the train out to Brooklyn to visit Liesl Gibson in her lovely studio (of Oliver+S and Lisette). Then trained it back to Manhattan and walked past Times Square and Bryant Park to have dinner up there with Mr Rae and a dear friend of ours. I think I can say “uptown” instead of “up there” but am not certain, so will refrain as to avoid embarrassment. Slightly less walking today, but we still walked through Central Park and around Madison Avenue and across the Brooklyn Bridge, so yeah, ask me tomorrow how my feet feel.
Can’t wait to show you some photos but I’m also double dog tired so it’ll have to wait. Until then, my friends.
