let's hear it for new york

Mom, Katie (a.k.a. Bozz; you've probably seen her from our many dinner parties), and I flew up together. hiked our bags up 5 flights of marble stairs (i have a fear of concrete/hard stairs). then went out into the city! (Also, this is Katie's first time to the big apple! woohoo!)

Ate some delicious raw food at one lucky duck! (yes, i have a signed cookbook from sarma :) love her!)

walked through Grand Central Station to feel like we're movie stars on set.

Went to the farmers' market! oh how i love markets!

more to come
