Scenes from New York... (+ A Lot of Lovely and Amazing)







New York City with Audrey was utterly and completely fantastic...

And it was a total whirlwind -- we were literally there for less than 24 hours and somehow managed to pack so much goodness into that single day that I'm still trying to process it all... + we're both a bit exhausted, as due to a cancelled flight, we had to spend last night in North Carolina, but the inconvenience was well worth the experience.

So you might be wondering why we went on this crazy, super-fast adventure right after retuning home from California... Well, we were there on behalf of the lovely and amazing Gabby, who (since sweet baby June is too wee to travel) asked Audrey and me to represent Design Mom at an event sponsored by Electrolux* to promote the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. (That was a mouthful, no?)

*{Electrolux sponsored the event and our trip}

In short, the event was pretty stellar (think Amy Atlas dessert tables) and (even more important) for a completely stellar cause. I'll have a full recap over on Design Mom soon. But in the meantime, you know I had to share a few trip highlights and pics over here...

Here's what we managed to squeeze in during our 24 hours in NYC: a trip to FAO Schwarz (at Audrey's request), a carriage ride around Central Park, a jaunt through Nolita, a dinner meet-up at Pulino's with the lovely and amazing Molly, a ride on the subway, a walk through Times Square after dark (thank you Molly!), the aforementioned Electrolux party, meeting the also aforementioned Amy Atlas, who is, yep, you guessed it, incredibly lovely and amazing and a quick trip to the Museum of Natural History.

Whew!

Friends I have to say it was a pretty epic time...but we're awfully glad to be home.

Love. It. All. So fabulous!
So many wonderful photos!
But of course, the one of Audrey embracing the subway pole is the my fave. The one of her looking at the Pulino shopfront is wonderful, too.

Stephanie said...

Wow! Love it! What a perfect trip for the both of you. Sometimes the last minute, somewhat unplanned and good company make the best trips.

Joslyn said...

sally + maureen --
my necklace (the one with the striped tunic) is from Anthro...hubby bought it for me last year for our anniversary.

The other one was being worn by an incredibly chic gal at the event we went to...she said it was vintage. Sigh.

Estelle said...

Totally overwhelmed by all the beauty. You and sweet Audrey. The colors, that Amy Atlas table, the jewelry, the museums. Oh, sensory overload for sure.

Mo Pie, Please said...

It warms my heart that this event was for Ovarian Cancer research - I lost my grandmother and a young coworker to this awful cancer. Anyway, you look stunning and Audrey is gorgeous - so styling, both of you!
