New York, finally.

The iconic carpet at PDX International Airport.

Saw the Matisse Cut-Outs show at the MoMA. A few pieces brought me to tears. Very inspiring.

My cute hotel room.

Ramen Heaven. Seriously. How can I recreate this at home?

An obligatory bagel. It lived up to all of my expectations.

At Heather Ross' new studio. Swoon...

This came home with me.

The Strand Bookstore
Bought my dear friend Courtney's latest book, Three Story House. It was like finding a friend in the city.

Dinner at Chelsea Market

Walking on the High Line, probably my favorite part of the trip.

So long...

What a fantastic trip! It already seems like a dream. I wisely chose not to haul a separate camera around, so we'll have to make do with these iPhone photos.

It was such a great trip on so many levels. I got to take a workshop on fabric design taught by my favorite fabric designer. I got to spend four days with Anna, one of my best friends. I spent six days away from my kids - no diaper changes, bedtime stories, cooking or cleaning. I was in one of the greatest cities on Earth! Any one of those things would have been wonderful, but having them all happen at the same time was incredible.

I think it took me so long to post these pictures because I am a little in denial about all of it being over...
