Hannah

A couple of years ago,I promised my daughter Hannah a trip to NY for her sweet 16. I still cant believe she's going to be 16...my baby girl,...
So I picked her up early from school,bags packed,ready to roll...
and up in the sky we went,minus one luggage,we accidentally left home(Ughhhhhh...)

My Sister Ingrid picked us up and we drove into the city and checked into Millennium on Broadway.
We walked and walked checking out the sites...

and at night we took in "Wicked" and made some awesome memories...
the next day we walked some more,and ended up in Central Park Zoo...

and after, had a fun portrait of Hannah made ..

and soon after we drove back to Long Island and vegged at my sisters house.
I always love visiting her house...it's so relaxing and beautiful.

and full of flowers

and her doggies,cats,chickens,fish pond,and goats...
yes,it was a pretty awesome trip. Hannah couldn't stop talking about it and we made some beautiful memories and I am so thankful for every single minute.
So now...back home...
I find myself packing again...heehee...
off to teach at Art is You Stamford.
These days are full.Full of happiness and joy and new beginnings.

Here's to making every minute count,

I should start to think about my daughter's sweet 16 as well...for now, I need to think about her sweet 6th Birthday next month ;)

Few things more lovely than a mom spending alone time with her daughter - and what better place for an artist than NY? Sounds like you had a blast - Hannah is growing up so much! Thanks for sharing these happy times :))
