I'm going to New York! (Just for the day). One of my good friends is going to ride up from MD and meet me there. I'm going to attend a photography workshop hosted by a celebrity photographer, then said friend and I are going to eat some 'oh so rich and fattening' sage butter ravioli at the Dream Hotel restaurant, and then we're going to see Cirque Du Soleil on Broadway. OOOOOOOHHHHH - I can't contain my excitement! Just to give you an idea of my enthusiasm:
- I did a 'going to New York' dance in Target last night when I called my mom to tell her where I was going.
- I did the Rockettes line-kick in my bathroom as I sang 'New York, New York'.
- I did a 'Hoe Down/Do Si Do You Partner' dance while on the phone with said friend.
- I'm sure I'll do another dance before I go to sleep. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
So the title of this post is a tribute to Frank Sinatra's song about New York.
Start spreadin' tha news,
I'm leaving today,
I want to be a part of it -
New York, New York.
He sang about it and loved it. I went there to ring in 2008, and now I'm going there again this year to celebrate the Big 4-0. Love it!!!!!!
It's almost like my birthday will be Christmas. The Santa will be the celebrity photographer, the sleigh/reindeer will be the Amtrak train/bus, and the presents will be the workshop, ravioli, and Cirque Du Soleil. Ain't life grand!!
