My time in NYC last week was fantastic. I saw three Broadway shows, ate till my hearts content, walked in central park, was surrounded by more books than one could imagine,
and I got to meet a very special friend.
Imene and I have been blogging friends for a couple of years now. We share so much in common. We're both creative mompreneurs, we love being moms, we both speak French, we read a lot of books in a year, and we love to knit and take photos.
Imene is the writer of A Journey to a Simple Happy Life. There she discusses the trials and joys of raising three young children while running her photography studio among many other things. We decided that we just had to finally meet and my coming to NYC provided that occasion.
We met at the famous Carnegie Deli where we ate the largest sandwiches I've ever seen in my life, in fact everything there was large, including this piece of pie.
From the moment we met our blog conversations became live and it was as if we had been friends forever. This is the treasure of the blogging world. Imene and I have been checking in with each other for a few years now and we've shared in each other's joys and frustrations as well as celebrated the milestones of our children, all virtually mind you, but truly from the heart and that's where our connection will continue.
Thank you Imene for a wonderful afteroon and lunch.
Today is also Linda's Knit Along, over at Natural Suburbia. We're all knitting the Shalom sweater. Because I was out of town I didn't get very far but I did make progress. I'm on row 28 for anyone keeping tabs. I find this a really easy pattern to knit up and eventhough I chose the wrong type of yarn, I can't see the pattern, I love the feel of it . I think in the end I will love this sweater whether I see the pattern or not.
