Scenes from the weekend.

Emily and I declared last Saturday a girls' day. We spent the day wandering up and down Fifth Avenue and shopping around the city. We admired the breathtaking windows at Bergdorf's, looked at diamonds in evergreen-lined windows, and scored the coolest brown snakeskin-print motorcycle jacket for $12 at Gap Kids. The Christmas decor that lined Fifth was beautiful, and Emily eagerly stopped at each display and took it all in. After a snack in Rockefeller Center, we hopped downtown and got her her first pair of Chucks before meeting Brian for a late lunch at Le Pain Quotidien. I couldn't have imagined a better outing. 

About an hour into our day together, Emily turned to me and said, "We should make this our tradition." I smiled and asked her what she meant, and she quickly replied, "Our girls' day the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It should be our tradition." I told her I couldn't agree more. And so a new tradition was born.

  1. That sound you just heard?

    YEAH, that was the sound of my heart bursting into PIECES!

    Heh heh. (But also: sniff!)

    That is too sweet, Daina. What a wonderful moment, and I love that you captured it so that one day in the future Emily can go back to this post and see how your tradition started.
