saturday was mama/daughter day in new york city! the train attendant gave my artsy girl a hearty welcome aboard, punched smiley faces in our tickets and went on her merry way. we met alice and her artsy girl at penn station and spent a low key afternoon of playgrounding, eating and shopping in union square. alice and i could have chatted for days about creativity & life (she also convinced me to dive into pinterest), and our daughters got along so well i nearly fell over. really, i haven't seen my little girl this happy since we moved here. i do think those smiley face tickets cast magic all over our day. as for that lovely train attendant, my friend lisa said when she saw this picture: "oh my, think of the world if more people were willing to play..."
