One thing that New York has made good on is bringing friends from near and far to visit.
Meet Myra, one of my pals from grad school.
Myra and her fella & some of their friends made the trip from D.C. recently for a quick NYC getaway.
We meet for dinner at the infamous Katz's Deli.
I couldn't help but keep an eye on the lady sitting in Meg Ryan's seat.
Just before the holidays, I got to meet Carrie & Matt downtown for a little bit of Christmas-in-the-city sightseeing.
Justin and I both went to college with Matt & Carrie, but it was through blogland that Carrie and I reconnected.
Such a small world, but such a great day with old/new friends.
And now, please meet my newest friend, Anna.
Anna writes a lovely blog called Dear Friend that will make you want to reach through the computer and hug her.
I had the pleasure of meeting Anna and her sweet sister Meg for a day out on the town.
We shopped Fish's Eddy, dined at Eataly and bonded over our shared love of Anthro bowls.
I am so glad I finally got to hug her in person.
That's another one in your favor, New York.
You bring friends to see us and we are grateful.
