New York, New York! My favorite city in the world with my favorite person in the world, husband Stephen! I started planning the trip the moment my former NYC roommate Sallie called with the news that she was tying the knot. Much to our delight, she wanted to hire me to design the flowers and Stephen to photograph the wedding. (He’s crazy talented if I do say so myself!)
The wedding was in Connecticut, so we booked flights to arrive a few days before the wedding so we’d have time to eat and shop our way through my old stomping grounds. While we’re on the subject, may I recommend a few staples in my NYC diet? Supper, Caraccas, Shake Shack and Lombardi’s
Here are some images of our adventures.

Nightly slumber parties with our dear family friends the Isbells and their 3 adorable boys in Harlem was certainly a highlight.
Stephen did a couple of family photo shoots of some our favorite New Yorkers (the Isbells and the Pauls) on The High Line. If you are in the city- plan an afternoon visit. That place is awesome.
Here are our friends, the Cones, in Brooklyn on a stoop that is not theirs.

Oh yeah, and on this trip we found out we are having a baby! Trust me when I say you’ll be hearing more about this newsflash very soon.
All in all, it was a work-filled but fun-filled homecoming tour.
