ANNUAL NYC TRIP...


My Aunt Eileen,  of Three Piece Bikini and The Fox is Dead  just about started this blog for me.  I went to visit her at her home in Philadelphia one day and she encouraged me to start a blog knowing that I had been thinking about it for quite a while.  When I left her house as a blogger, I was thrilled.  Thank you forever Aunt Eileen xo.   I was afraid and worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with daily entries.  Well, here I am 20 months later and still blogging away.  I love this platform for exactly what it is to me and that is a creative, fun way to express myself and meet people who are encouraging, positive, creative and genuine.  Win Win! 

These photos are from a trip that my Aunt Eileen treated my husband and I to in NYC/Times Square around this time last year.  We are getting ready to make another trip soon for lunch and I am hoping to meet in person, my blogger buddy Angela of BohemianFlavoredCheck out her blog.   Angela and I met thru Kendi Everyday when we did her winter remix.  I have been wanting to meet up.  I am trying to make this happen.  Fingers crossed. 

Have a great weekend, hopefully getting a tree on Saturday for my Christmas Karaoke Party...you are all invited!  Disclaimer: Video footage of that evening will be posted.  Dawn xoxo
