Glad to hear your havin an awesome time in NYC,

I love "Elf"!!

"I walked through the seven levels of the candy cane forest, through a sea of swirly twirly gum drops and through the lincoln tunnel"


Love it!

Love to you Ms. blue,



Believe it or not I've never seen "Elf" - I'll have to rent it.
Thanks for sharing some of the views - I feel like I've been windowshopping in NY.
Safe amd happy traveling to you and Tara, both!

I LOVE THE MOVIE ELF!!! I thought I was the only one..LMAO!!!I own it, watch it every Christmas since it came out, right along with, "It's a Wonderful Life."

Those pictures are gorgeous!!! I can't wait to get there! Too bad that you and Tara won't be there to hang out with. I will have to console myself with tea at The Plaza!

Keep posting those pictures!!

Hi love!

I am so romanced by these pictures, and so wish I could go there this winter. It would be heavenly!

Ok... I have a question for you:

How are you liking this typepad connect? I'm frustrated with it because I can't access commenters email address and therefore can't reply to them directly. Am I just not using this right?? ugh!

FUN!!!! Did you stop at the Plaza for tea?? :) miracles, k-

Tara Bradford

Your photos are gorgeous! I think I took those same ones - we'll see when I have time to sort them all. Love that movie - something about the holiday season makes all those children's movies seem magical all over again. Miss you! xoxox


what a time you had! I adore these windows with the reflected buildings, they tell the tale of the big city!!

especially that last one....and YES! loved Elf


Gillian! I so want those eyelashes and uhem... the peacock. These are wonderful shots!

Each time we watch elf, I have to laugh after the burp- "Did you hear that?". lol
