Today was my first full day here in New York City, visiting my sister for her 50th birthday celebration. My sister, my mother and I all have the same Ugg boots. (They were our mother’s holiday gift from last year.) We’re not usually together, so it’s pretty funny when we are.
Here we are on the #6 train in the Bronx, complete with daylight, as the subway is above ground at this point.
I love all the wonderful old tilework throughout the New York subway system. I always feel the need to photograph it when when I hit town. You’ll likely be seeing more as the week progresses!
Of course, it makes a great backdrop as well!
And no NYC trip would be complete without a bagel or two. Even the most mundane bagel is better than the very best that Portland has to offer.
I want to share this adorable garland that my sister made using nothing more than twine and her neighbor’s pinecones. She didn’t even glue or sew them, as they were apparently sappy enough to stay secure with a simple wrap of the rope. I’m totally stealing this idea when I get home!
But one of my favorite observances from today was this humble sidewalk patch, which featured a sweet little paw print.
I do love me a New York City trip!
