You may have noticed over the past week that it's been a little quiet around here at Everyday Fray. While we apologize for the lack of content, we swear we have a great explanation for our disappearance... we went to New York City!!! Back in the fall, Amanda had a brilliant suggestion to hit up the Big Apple for a girls trip - the three lady cousins and our mamas. Last weekend we took that trip, and gosh did we ever have a wonderful time! We'll be back soon with our regular quilty/crafting updates shortly, but in the meantime here are a few of our favourite shots from the trip.
We've travelled to a lot of big cities but this one really takes a hold of you. Manhattan is a stunner, and Brooklyn is definitely a hidden gem that I wish we had time to explore more.
Amanda suggested spring in New York because of her past trips here and it's easy to see why. There is nothing quite like leaving winter in Canada and landing in a city totally in bloom. Cherry blossoms and magnolias abound, it's hard to imagine visiting this city at any other time.
Three cousins jumping on the Brooklyn Bridge - was there ever any other shot to take here?
On the way to a Boardway show in Times Square, Amanda found an NYPD horse and went to say hello.

It was so nice to spend a great weekend in a great city with some of our favourite people. A trip to be remembered for sure. That said, we're already dreaming up our next adventure!
