Guest Blog: Hi from NYC!

Hi everyone!

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!)
