I’m Back Home, but…
… not quite back in the saddle yet.
Thank you everyone for all your cheerful birthday wishes! We had a wonderful vacation to New York City, and I enjoyed a fabulous birthday. I took hundreds of photos, but I won’t bore you with too many here. I will post more on my flickr page. Here are just a few highlights.
One of our favorite things to do in the city is explore Central Park and different neighborhoods. I love the variety of street scenes you come upon, just wandering around. We do a lot of walking!
More and more Christmas lights and decorations were popping up over the week, which put us in a festive mood.
We spent a couple days exploring different parts of Central Park. It was a nice surprise to see fall leaves throughout the park.
I love the beautiful statues scattered all over the city, intermixed among the skyscrapers, making them seem more magical. One of my favorite statues is the angel at Bethesda Fountain in Central Park.
We lucked out with a gorgeous day of hiking at Harriman State Park, which was about 45 minutes north of Manhattan.
There was so much moss in that park, making the forest feel mystical.
Luckily, my sister-in-law and brother-in-law came back with us to spend some time in Madison, helping to ease our transition back to realty.
I haven’t done any blogging, surfing or emailing in over a week, which feels weird to me. I take pride in staying connected with all my fabulous blogger friends, so I have a bit of catching up to do. Hope you all enjoyed a happy Thanksgiving.
