Howdy friends, yesterday I was knocked down with some type of flu bug, but I'm back and getting caught up. I thought I'd share a little more NYC with you.  On saturday after we were all set up (the booth) we hit the city for the afternoon. A co-worker of Andy's out of the Manhattan office is a docent at the Natural History Museum so we headed there after finalizing the booth, for a tour of the museum. We were a tiny bit early so we did what we thought everyone who visits NY should do: eat a hot dog and walk in Central Park– both were fantastic! Then headed into the Natural History Museum, it was a really great tour and I kept thinking how much Charlotte would have loved touring it. After the Museum we met with old & wonderful friends Jody and Keri. They live upstate NY and own/work/do it all on an organic farm called Roxbury Farms. It was so delightful to catch up after not seeing them for over a decade, we just picked right back up where we had left off, don't  you just love friends like that? Jody suggested the B. Cafe a Belgian cafe on the Upper West Side (a new favorite spot!) and wouldn't you know it but we sat next door to the Mermaid Inn a great seafood restaurant designed by famed graphic designer and letterer Louise Fili (so I had to nerd-out and tell the gang about her). We then enjoyed a little dessert and coffee at a sidewalk coffee/cafe. Then we of course had to say goodbye to our friends since they had a bit of a drive back home and Andy and I enjoyed walking around the Upper West Side. Whew what a saturday huh?– and this was all before the Stationery Show started! Okay, I promise tomorrow I'll show more photos of booths and recap the show a bit…
