New York City

Hello dear friends! I haven't posted anything in a few days because I am busy enjoying my trip to New York City. I am attending a wonderful teaching conference at Columbia University. We have really enjoyed the city. I love to just take off and explore when I travel. Luckily, I am here with two friends (my principal and another teacher from my school) who are the same way...laid back tourists who just love to walk and see. We're having such a fabulous time. I miss my husband and my daughter, though. I've never been away from my little girl for this many days in a row. I probably won't be posting any poetry until I return home, which will be Saturday. The picture above is my friend Shelly and I in front of our beautiful hotel on the Upper West Side, The Lucerne.  I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I'll be back in a few days.

Love from the Big Apple,


  1. Have a nice time...see you when you are back Kristin :)


  2. Wow two beautiful ladies in the Big Apple, hope you have tons of money and of course, always a camera, you're so pretty and young!

  3. Hope my home town is treating you right. Remember, New Yorkers are friendlier than they seem.

  4. Thank you, Devika and Lorraine! :)
    Bill...I actually said that very thing tonight...that everyone in New York has been wonderful-very friendly and helpful. I think those are very false misconceptions. This southern girl has been impressed...and I know hospitality! :)
