Travel Diary // NYC

Last week, I spent a few days in New York for work. It was a whirlwind trip, with just about every minute scheduled. Luckily, Nick was able to join me too, so while I worked during the day, he had fun exploring (and working a bit too) and then we could come together in the evenings to play around the city. I'm excited to show you some of the things I worked on--like some videos I shot with the amazing Apartment Therapy team-- in the upcoming months. In the mean time, here's a short photo travel diary. You'll see some photos from what we shot, an evening spent at the Affordable Art Fair preview, and a whole lot of photos from the BHG Stylemakers event. Thank you so much to Better Homes and Gardens for the incredible experience. Stephen, Jill, Amy, Karla, and Allison (and the countless others that worked on this event)--Thank you! I really enjoyed meeting and networking with the other bloggers and just spent the entire day trying to learn and enjoy the experience.

So much inspiration, so many amazing people. I feel so energized and so, so tired at the same time. But there's no rest for the weary, so I'm off to make it happen. xo
