Guest Blog: Hi from NYC!
I'm Kate, one of Beth's Gales Designs employees (and oldest child!) and her official guest blogger for this weekend. I'm so excited to be part of this blog! I helped Mom set it up a few months ago and have been so happy to see it grow.
A little bit about me: I graduated from Notre Dame and now I live in Manhattan and work in the publicity department of a book publishing company. I love my job and living in city! Tomorrow, I'll be posting a bit more about myself, showing you some of the things I love right now (including my current favorite Gales Designs pieces).
I spend a lot of time walking around the city, exploring new neighborhoods and looking for inspiration to pass along to Mom. This weekend, I am going to the Union Square Greenmarket (a fantastic local farmer's market, and tomato/peach/sweet corn season is my favorite!) and venturing to Brooklyn for the Brooklyn Flea Market in DUMBO, and maybe taking a stroll through SoHo. Mom and I have been to some great flea markets in PA where she gets some of her vintage pieces, but this is my first trek to the one in Brooklyn. Maybe I can convince her to take a buying trip up here!
The picture at the top is from Tuesday's performance of the New York Philharmonic in Central Park. It's an amazing event--you can read a New York Times recap here--and I have gone for the past two years with some current and former coworkers and friends. We also watch Lost together in the winter, but this was such a great NYC night--picnics, friends old and new, and actually seeing stars (the kind in the sky!) in the city.
More to come tomorrow! (And safe travels to NC, Mom & Dad!)
