To Open Doors and a New York State of Mind

1 comment

A month into my year of “anything can happen,” and I’m reminded of the trip I took last January to visit my sister in the city where anything really can happen, New York.  I’m also wishing that by now someone had invented teleportation so I could beam in to NYC to celebrate the engagement of one of my very best friends to a very cool red-headed Irishman….since that hasn’t happened, I’ll have to wait for the invention of the time machine so I can go back to the party from the future….

To my friends, I wish you every happiness in life and countless adventures to thrill you! May every day of your marriage be as joyful as this day of celebration! Congratulations on your engagement!

Here are some of my favorite photos from several trips to NYC last year:

Here’s to a year of open doors!
