Photo Friday: New York, New York

[shareaholic app=”share_buttons” id=”20872686″]

Our final morning in New York earlier this week, SVV and I had planned a brunch on the Upper East Side at Sarabeth’s, one of my favorite restaurants for the pumpkin waffle alone, so we could zip over to Lemon’s, get our bags and head to JFK once we were done. But the weather had other plans. There were sideways drops that pelleted us like bebes, there were hurricane-strong winds—not at all the sort of weather anyone wants to be outside in.

And so, in the spirit of my friend and our gracious hostess, we took lemons and made lemonade. In my world, that means running through puddles barefoot (or in flip flops) in Central Park.

I sang “Chim Chim Charee” while doing it, too, believe you me. No shame here. Luckily, SVV has become accustomed to me making a spectacle of us wherever we go. He seems cool with it.

I also fulfilled my wish of kissing a cute boy under an umbrella, in the rain, in the middle of the park.

See, rain isn’t always a bad omen.

    Great shots and playing in puddles is a great way to spend summer rainy days! Thanks for the comment on my blog too 🙂

    Playing in the rain is the most fun! Although, I reckon you’re pretty brave to play in puddles in nyc… love that city, but it never really feels clean. And the one thing better than kicking up puddles is smooching in the warm rain.

    It’s nice to see you having fun in the rain! We are used to the rain here in Scotland but I’m rarely as happy about it 🙂

    OMG – I loved eating at Sarabeth’s when I lived in NYC – but I’m glad you still had a wonderful day!

    Fun. Fun. Fun. I heard about the outrageous weather there. Glad you made lemonade!

    Such sweet pictures! I love Sarabeth’s too! I was just there last weekend. Let me know if you are ever around there again and we could meet up for a mimosa!

    I love the way you made the most of it. My first trip to NYC was this spring, and the weather was absolutely perfect. I felt so lucky and fell in love with the city just like I’d always imagined I would. I’d like to think I would have been happy to be there even in the rain – like you – but having gorgeous weather the first time felt like such a nice omen.

    Viele Gruesse, Kristina
