how does the saying go? begin where you are?
i wanted to try to catch up on this blog~journal of mine (good times, good times!), but the thought of that was too daunting...
i did go to FIT, fashion institute of technology in nyc, and received a teachers certificate for knitting. i learned so much, met lovely new friends and best, gained a bit more confidence (maybe being on my own in the city helped with that!)
oh, i wasn't completely alone...there was time with my girl hannah (who lives there) and a blogging friend who took the train in from connecticut to meet for dinner one night, and wee olive...
preparing for class
dear student :)
7th avenue, manhattan
happy hour chocolate covered potato chips
a vintage desk for hannah, found at vortex in williamsburg
walking home from class
hannah's origami tips (left by a clever customer)
dear blogging friend kj, bryant park and wee....
and nearly everywhere we went
she made friends
she spent nearly as much time in the dressing room as hannah...
she waited patiently for elevators
and she hardly cried when it was time to say goodbye
i love new york and i miss my girl. but i'm happy to be home (hello sky) and i really am very excited to see where my new teaching certificate leads me. this weekend i got a brand new computer (thank you dear husband) so i will be able to resume proper blog visits. see you soon!
