YOGART STUDIO :: NYC Inspiration

I have experienced love at first sight exactly once in my life. New York City stole my heart 15 years ago on my first visit and I have never forgotten or looked back since. Truman Capote precisely described this feeling of total admiration and devotion when he said: “I love New York, even though it isn’t mine, the way something has to be, a tree or a street or a house, something, anyway, that belongs to me because I belong to it”. Every time I return, my heart skips a beat because NYC is a place that vibrates with promise and the sheer thrill and possibility of losing yourself. If you allow yourself to give in to a place this volatile, you quickly learn that it can just as easily break you as it can lift you to a place of inspiration that leaves you salivating for more.

Too many yummy food vendors, too small a stomach

Settled on a gluten free macaroon ice cream sandwich after I devoured my hand-cut fries tossed in truffle oil, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and mushroom aioli…my hunger didn’t allow enough time to snap a pic

The best part of this NY trip was spending so much time with this amazing crew of beloved and inspiring women that I am fortunate enough to call my friends

A Boston detour also happened 🙂
