Good Bye New York

Okay, fans, we are not neglecting you.  We have had an amazing couple of days in New York looking at NYU, Columbia, Pratt and The New School, Seeing Pippin and The Realistic Jonses  on Broadway and eating at great restaurants, Hearth, and Estela.  All the details to come, but now we are on our way to Atlanta, and we just haven’t had enough time to blog. So sorry!  But please keep checking in and keep donating. We are sure to come up with some great insights to travel, food, education and mom’s and daughters special time.  Here is our last view of NY, driving over the Williamsburg bridge.  What a gorgeous, vibrant, incredible, hard to top city.  Thank you New Yorkers, and the weather God for a beautiful couple of packed to the hilt days.

Nostrana Our delicious dinner with a snip :)

From the first step into Nostrana,this vibrant, welcoming restaurant, we knew we’d found an eatery where warm family celebrations met up with elegantly presented delicious food.   Little did we know that we’d be introduced to a knew piece of table ware. The pizza scissors.  Now I guess it’s only appropriate to use on the best thin crust, not soggy, not brittle, just right texture of crust.  But snipping thru my arugala, sauce and cheese with ease, just left me giggling inside (and out) as I created my individual perfectly sized piece of pie perfection.

In Search of Cute Animals

Watching that sneezing panda video and others like it has surely added a needed smile to many of my days so I’m determined to find and capture my own “Cute Animal” videos to share with you.  In the last week, it’s been harder than I thought to find the proverbial  butterfly landing on a cows nose at the precise moment my video camera is on and in focus, but I’m gonna keep trying.
