There are some experiences that stay with you long after they are over. I recently had just that. About a week and a half ago, I ventured east to New York City for the weekend. It was my first trip to the Big Apple, and within minutes of arriving, I knew it would not be my last. While I love the wide open spaces I come from, the vibrancy of the city left me feeling inspired and energized.
What brought me to New York? Well, I had the privilege to photograph a cookbook by my friend Laura, ‘The Best Homemade Kids Lunches on the Planet’. She was having a book signing at Barnes & Noble that weekend and graciously invited me to tag along. We have a second book (!) coming out in just two short weeks, so this was a chance to celebrate that, the beginning of work on a third book and a time for us to collaborate face to face.
