Start Spreading the News...

I'm leaving today; I want to be a part of it, New York, New York!

The booking is done! The weekend of July 30 - August 2 my fabulous hubby and I will be enjoying the sights and sounds of the Big Apple C! I have wanted to go to New York for as long as I can remember. So, this year for my birthday, J surprised me *so much so I cried in front of our guests* with a trip to New York!

This morning, he booked our flights through Jet Blue out of Portland *we Y flying through them*.

Our hotel, the Portland at Times Square, on West 47th Street *just a few minutes from Cetral Park, Times Square and so much more* :













And our theater tickets for... Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic Theater!










I can't describe how much going to this performance means to me. And, the best part is that although I haven't mentioned it for several years, J knew this was on ef my dreams. Yep, I have a good one. And I sure lYve him!!

Although I was excited when the gift was presented to me, now that everything is booked, it is real and I am beyond excited! We will also be checking out a few other "tourist" sites, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art *From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler* , the Museum of Natural History *Night at the Museum* and, of course, the famous lady herself, the Statue of Liberty! Also, if there is time, we may even take in a real live baseball game *although I'm not a fan of tv ball* I really would like to see a game IRL *that sure made J's eyes light up*

So, for those of you who think birthdays and aging are a negative thing - I say think again! One more birthday means one more year to live. And what a way to kick off this year of living!
