Bubbles & Bridges & Bloggers- OH MY!

Vivianna, one of my favorite bloggers who I am happy to call a friend, was in new york city a few weeks ago!
She sent me a text one night that said something like "Want to walk across the brooklyn bridge with me and my friend Jen and take photos while blowing bubbles?"
(you can see why I love her!!!)
Ummm, YEAH I wanted to walk across the bridge while blowing bubbles.
Some photos from our walk are below-These are Viv's photos that I did a bit of editing to!
And be sure to visit her pretty blog HERE!

was a lot of fun! (thanks vivs! & hi Jen if you see this!!)

Once a upon a time….TEN (we are old) years ago , a group of gal pals met at Syracuse University. They were pretty much inseparable for years. And years. And years. And years. And years. They graduated college and all moved to New York City where they remained pretty much inseparable. Time went on, moves took place, jobs changed, life changed and still even with miles and states and hours between them they remained amazingly close.
And today, while some twitter feeds might lead one to believe they are going about their every day business as normal, I am here to report it's a LIE!
ACTUALLLLLLY, 3 of the gals have flown into Chicago to surprise the fourth as she is a very special bride-to-be and today is her wedding shower!!!

Looking forward to a great weekend filled with, well, SURPRISES, good friends & good times. It's been awhile since the four of us have been reunited, which will make this weekend extra special. Not to mention TAYLOR IS GETTING MARRIED!!
and here are some photos from a million memories past...

and taylor...SURPRISE! :-)
