memories of New York ... and friendship

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

... a beautiful quote to brighten up this rainy spring day. 

I took this photo last spring when I was in New York with my friend, Karen.
I won a trip to New York to see the Martha Stewart show and I took Karen with me as my guest ... I wrote about our trip here.

Karen and I had a great time and I am so happy that I was able to take her with me ... it is a trip that I will remember fondly ... forever. I was looking through all of the photos that we took of our trip last night ...  we both shot a lot of pictures as we walked around New York City ... this is one of my favourite pics of Karen ...
I added the quote "we do not remember the days ... we remember the moments" to this picture.
Karen and I both loved the flowers that were for sale on the streets ... I would take photos of the shop fronts and she would take close ups of the flowers. I caught her off guard as she was taking a photo of some of the flowers ... I remember calling her name and this is the shot that I got as she looked over at me ... Karen, smiling as always.

Karen is not feeling very well right now and I know that she will not able to read this post ... but I wanted to let her know that I am glad that she is my friend.

  1. Wonderful quote. I hope your friend feels better soon.

    I was looking around your blog after being away much too long and I must say there are a lot of beautiful things. I need to come visit more often. And you should submit something to Create With Me. I can only imagine the gorgeous stuff you make with your girls.

    Have a wonderful weekend :)
