When I told my girls that we would be going to NYC, the first thing my youngest said to me was, ‘Oh, the shopping mama!!’. And I thought, ‘Uh oh‘! Especially knowing that right now the Canadian Dollar is at a low point conversion. There is so much to see and do and buy in NYC, you could easily drop $100K in just one day of shopping. What I really wanted to teach them about going on a holiday, is that it isn’t really about the dollars you spend, but sometimes rather the kitchy, fun and more silly momentos that can stay with you for a lifetime. When I went to NYC in 1994 for the first time, it was with my Interior Design classmates on a fun trip/tour of the city. I made a photo album when we got home with pictures and tickets and other momentos. I still cherish it to this day. I’ve been inspired by one of my Blogcademy teachers, Shauna Haider, to take better photos overall for my blog, Instagram and other social media channels. Photos that inspire are much prettier, aren’t they?
Here are some of my favourite Moments and Momentos from the trip:
