Mom Takes on New York City


Over and over, I am constantly amazed by how fast time passes. Case in point this past weekend. All month I had been looking forward to my mom coming to visit Derek and me in the city, and now to think that time has come and gone. But oh, what a great weekend it was.

Because my mom had been to NYC several times prior, this visit was all about relaxation…and of course celebration since she arrived the day after I officially received my offer from Kate Spade! After hitting up some of my favorite spots around the city, such as Union Square, Soho and our usual brunch spot, we were all exhausted. Not to mention freezing!! I’m not sure if I’ll ever get used to these frigid temps up here.

Lastly, Mom’s only request for the weekend was to see another broadway show, so of course the number one choice was Once! And as I expected, the show was just as amazing as the time Derek and I saw it over the summer. By far, the absolute BEST musical I’ve ever seen. That night was the perfect ending to an unforgettable weekend.


Not a day goes by that I don’t thank God for my mom. I don’t know how I became so blessed to have such a beautiful, charismatic mother, inside and out, but the older I get, the more I realize how fortunate I am. I can only hope to be half the woman she is. So thank you, mom, for all your love. For all your support. For everything.
