On St. Patrick's Day 2017, I was in NEW YORK CITY with Lilly. Of course you heard all about that trip at the time...(for weeks, probably)...but I cannot believe we did EVERYTHING WE DID in just three days in that beautiful, grand dame City.
Gheesh...I love, love, love New York City.
Because we were going to be there on St. Patrick's Day (a complete accident) -- I made sure we had the proper attire...
|Lilly, with her St. Pat outfit.|
|Sad to say, this is the only picture I have of MY GREAT SHIRT...it's me, Lilly, my sister Deb, her granddaughter Lexi and DIL Stacy. This trip was Deb's gift to Lexi for HS graduation.|
|We started off the day at the wonderful Westway Diner.|
|Their breakfast was cheaper than our local joints!!|
|Lilly loved meeting Swatch in person.|
|Deb is in her glory in a fabric store.|
|Lilly got to ride the OLDEST CONTINUOUSLY OPERATING ESCALATOR IN THE WORLD...|
|At Macy's, of course!! The flagship store -- and star of Miracle on 34th Street. (we watched a lot of NYC movies before the trip)|
|Then, another subway ride (Lilly LOVED the subway!)|
|Really -- neither one of us could stop smiling...|
|Our ride on the Staten Island Ferry will be a memory we both treasure...|
|Then, another subway ride.|
|I wanted Lilly to see the inside of Grand Central Terminal.|
|Then, a little rest from the wet and cold...in one of my favorite hotel lobbies..|
|Yep. The Hotel Edison!|
|HEY -- we might as well END our perfect day where it started!! BACK TO THE WESTWAY for a late dessert.|
We will be staying at the Hotel Edison...and -- we have tickets to see the new Broadway show, Come From Away..!!
YES, I KNOW WHAT A LUCKY GIRL I AM...sooooo lucky!!
The human embodiment of a Four Leaf Clover....!! I LOVE IT...
