Apologies & a Big Apple Birthday

I am sincerely sorry for the  2+ month lapse in blogging.  Our final few weeks in New York were hectic to say the least, but we finished with a bang, thanks to a reunion of sorts from my sorority sisters!  This get together marked fifteen years since we met – holla!  A complete girls weekend blog post is forthcoming, complete with our itinerary for others to use (and use and use and use again, as we had a gooooooooooooooood time.)

By mid-October, Michael and I packed our suitcases and left the big city, but before we returned to island life on Tortola, we celebrated a special 1st birthday for this bitty:

It's My Birthday!

We went with a Big Apple theme to pay tribute to our merry months in Manhattan.  Not only did we serve NYC-inspired fare, apple juice {for the children} and a Big Apple rum spritzer {for the adults}, we also covered the over sized O-N-E letters in a map of Manhattan island.  And of course we had to share the New York Times article that was published about our dear Anna Drake.  (wink! wink!)

Anna Drake's NYT ArticleAnna Drake is so blessed to have such loving grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, an uncle, cousins and dear friends, and baby friends.  It was a wonderful way to celebrate our darling daughter before whisking her away back to the BVI.  20121218-161214.jpgFrom now on, you can expect our posts to consist of a lot less dining and shopping and a lot more white sand beaches and frozen drinks!
