NYC + friends + good bagels = true love

jen_lee_diana2.jpg

Just returned from NYC and I am in love! I have been to the city many times but saw it with new eyes this time around. It was magic.

I am a lucky girl.

A couple of dear friends lovebombed me with a surprise ticket to NYC where the sole purpose would be to eat and laugh and take photos. They hatched this scheme with the help of Matt and before I knew it I was on an airplane and away for 4 days…

Valentine’s Day update:
I’m jamming to get Valentine’s Day orders out but just wanted to give you an update on what I have left in stock that you can still get on time for Friday or Saturday delivery.

A few of each of these:
Joy
Pyrex
Passion

Plus:
all the pendant necklaces (starburst and bullseye) a girl could want!

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    OK, it’s official: I’m asking the Universe for a lovebomb.
    Happy V-Day!

    I am really uncomfortable with the use of ‘bomb’ in ‘lovebomb’. Imagine using ‘twin towers’ to dexcribe something really hot or explosive.Bombs are terrible. People die from bombs! Sorry to be so PC about this, but need to be more sensitive to language adn meaning of words.

    Oops. First time commenter! Didn’t realize sent multiple times. Sorry! Just a thought . . .

    When I hear lovebomb, I think ‘explosion of love’, which I believe it was intended as. In fact, according to the dictionary, one definition of ‘bomb’ is “… a great success : hit; slang : one that is striking or extraordinary —used with the ….”
    I think Andrea has evidenced through her writing that she thoughtful and sensitive when it comes to the meaning of words; she chose the combination of words she meant to.
    She *didn’t* use the phrase ‘twin towers’- that came from your own connotation toward the word bomb. Perhaps a look inward would lead you to why this bothers you so much.

    I hear Lovebomb and all I can think of is the B52s (sing it now) “… at the Love Shack, Baby!”
    Such a fine idea. Sounds like fun.

    I’m glad you had a wonderful trip to New York! I saw this and thought of you: http://pleasefindthis.blogspot.com/
    Wishing you all the best in the new year!
    Cheers,

    How cool of your friends to whisk you away like that. New York City is the bomb. Love it there and can’t wait to see the way you captured it through your lense.

  13. Jen Diamond

    Did you get a new camera or is that your friend’s?
    I’m so happy for you to have had so much fun and what
    an excellent surprise!
    I hope your fingers are cramping making all those lovely
    jewels.
    Love,
    Jen

    that sounds like a DREAM! and i am lovin’ that camera! what is it??? NYC has my heart. i feel so alive when i visit there. not sure why i just do. and a love bomb wow i want to be love bombed! 🙂 lucky lady.

  15. Brené

    you are just so lovebombable.

  16. Susan

    omg, my husband just did this very thing for me…but I’m going to San Fran (leave in two weeks). How awesome!
    Oooh, and I just got the Diana for Christmas but haven’t used it yet. Do you like it? What’s the learning curve? I have film in it but that’s about it. 🙂

  17. creativevoyage

    oooohhh did you go to B&H photographic supplies?

  18. Laura

    Wow, that is just awesome– my eyes glaze over when someone mentions NYC and I go to a ‘happy place’. I’ve never been there, but there’s something about the way people gush about it that has made me very keen to make a beeline there.
    I was remarking to a friend recently about how my partner had been really attentive, generous and thoughtful; and how lucky I was to have him. She just smiled knowingly and said “water seeks it’s own level”.
    I think the same principle applies to friends 🙂

  19. Gypsy

    I’m so glad the chickies lovebombed you!! Xoxo

    Andrea,
    I love the ‘lovebomb’ connotation! To be swathed up, cradled and wrapped in such affection is pure jubiliation!
    Rebecca, think of the word ‘bombarded’ this doesn’t have an uncomfortable feel to it. Lovebomb just has to be viewed from another angle. To be ‘bomb’arded in love, friendship and appreciation is a gift.
    As a reader of Andrea’s posts you know that this spectacular woman doesn’t possess an unkind word in her vocabulary or bone in her body. No need to be too PC just trying expanding your own interpretations of this ‘Andreaism’.
    Love to you both, Andrea and Rebecca,
    Trish
