Have A Fabulous Weekend!!

Happy Friday! This week, a combination of too much work and too much play equaled not nearly enough time for blogging - reading OR writing! Please have patience with me...I am reading and enjoying all of your posts, but more often than not, I am reading them on my iPad at 3am.
Here is what I have been doing this week...
Visiting one of the gems of New York - the New York Botanical Garden. We saw Kiku - the Japanese Garden exhibit, had a delicious lunch at the "pop-up" Japanese restaurant, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the incredible pumpkin creations in the Haunted Pumpkin Garden. Fall is the perfect time to visit your local botanical garden and if you are in NYC, the NYBG is a must see! You can take a train from Grand Central which drops you off across the street from the garden. 
Via  I Dream Of
Lunching with the ladies...I was fortunate enough to be a guest at this absolutely enchanting lunch where I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with a group of my favorite bloggers, including the adorable Jeanne from I Dream Of who flew in all the way from Seattle! It was such a pleasure to finally meet her! It is remarkable how much all of us have in common beyond the blogging world. Thank you to Tina of The Enchanted Home for sharing her gorgeous home with us!!
Putting the final touches on a fabulous British Garden Tour, two amazing Italy trips, and quite a few last minute holiday travel requests...and wrapping up loose ends for work before focusing on my own travels the end of next week.
 Opening boxes of things I have ordered online for my trip (no time to shop) and then returning every single item. Guess I will be packing things I already own, which is usually the best way to go, right?
 Looking forward to a relaxing weekend enjoying the stunning fall colors in New England...
Don't forget to email me with your guest posts!! 
I hope YOU have an absolutely wonderful weekend...wherever you may be wandering...
