A few years ago, I had to go to
for a Monday morning meeting. Since I would only be tied up for a few hours, I decided to make the most of the quick trip and take an early flight up Sunday morning and a late flight home Monday night. I took my best friend with me and we made the most of our 36 hours in Manhattan . New York City
The meeting was at the Marriott Marquis in
Times Square, which was also where we stayed. It’s the kind of job perk that I miss. Travel is limited now, but on this day, we tried to do it all. We shopped on Fifth Avenue (where we ran into Katie Couric), checked out the view at the top of the Empire State Building, saw a Broadway show, took a stroll through Central Park, ate lots of great food and took several death-defying taxi rides (the only kind there are in NYC).
I also bought a scarf from a street vendor and posed quickly for this photo in
The layout is primarily Little Yellow Bicycle from the Escape and Splash collections with a little bit of Crate, Echo Park, Studio Calico and October Afternoon mixed in.
Here’s a close-up of the layering in the middle. The cute chipboard from LYB worked perfectly with the page.
The "new arrival" tag under the photo is from Crate's baby line, but I thought it fit here too.
