New York Fashion Week and My Birthday!


On Wednesday, we arrived in New York, another town where I have lived and miss more than I can say. As part of my birthday week, some friends decided to help me take my town back. My birthday is 9/11 and I have not visited New York on my birthday since the day became something else here. Since Fashion Week falls during my birthday celebration, the timing just seemed right.
At An American in Paris on Broadway. Simply awesome!!
