What a day...

Finally in NYC... My guy cracked the RV mirror when he ran it into a transit bus mirror. Then if that wasn't enough, we couldn't park in front of the building due to construction. So, parking & hauling things from a block away seemed like the only thing to do. It was insane.. But I had a laugh...

Thank God I have family here, they came out to help with the items we had in the RV. More to come soon! Hope everyone is well... My feet feel like they're about to fall off.

P.S. I'm the one with the aviator glasses holding my artwork!

    Hope the rest of the move goes smoothly!

  25. Um, weird. I cracked my side view mirror this morning backing out of my garage. So bummed. I didn't realize how large your artwork was! I loooove your artwork (I'm an art teacher FYI). It reminds me of makeup swatches!

    Welcome to NYC pretty! Enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. I'm loving it.

  30. I remember the first time my family drove to NY, we got into a car accident right outside of the tunnel. It must've been really hard to drive around in an RV..so congrats for making it to NY in one piece!

    Oh and I had no idea how big your painting was. Gorgeous!

  35. Oh Jen! I feel your pain! Monday, we had to retrieve all of our belongings from San Jose (2 hrs away) repack them into a u-haul and then move them into our new apartment (after a cross-country move). Exhausting! I'll be thinking of & praying for you guys to settle quickly. So happy you made it safely....go get some rest!
