I just got back from an amazing, action-packed weekend in New York. I went without husband or children to attend both the Playtime NYC and ENK trade shows for international children’s brands in apparel and accessories. As a native New Yorker I am used to hoofing it and I LOVE to walk so it was great to be able to wander around town in the clear and early spring-like weather.  I’m am pretty impressed with myself in terms of how much ground I was able to cover in such a short time.  It always feels great to be productive and feel accomplished. There was some work, some socializing, lots of walking and visits to several places I’ve been wanting to go for a long while. Enjoy the pictures! I’ll be back in a few days to report on store happenings and some of the great vendors I found at Playtime and ENK. I’m excited just thinking about it!  I Love NY, always and forever.

1 Hanson Place. Thanks Magic for not letting them tear this gem down. The interior hall is amazing. I would buy a condo up in here.
