home again home again

We're back from the gift show and it was really great. After we packed up the booth we spent the day visiting the NYC shops that picked up Pistachio Press. It was so exciting to see where our cards will live when they leave the studio!

During the trip we had some fantastic meals, many of them eaten with friends we don't get to see enough. And afterward, we'd get to walk back to the apartment as the sun set. My favorite time of the day is when the light of the sun hits the buildings just right and makes them glow.

But, as awesome as this show was, I have to say that the last few weeks have been comepletely exhausting. I fell asleep on the couch while trying to respond to emails the night we finally got back home. When I started Pistachio Press, I had no idea how much time email would take up.  My goal is to try to catch up on the rest of the messages that came in while I was away and then file my inbox into official folders...almost 2700 messgaes to sort through in just one of my inboxes. Can you tell I like to save things :) That number makes me nervous, but it also makes me determied to have a manageable inbox by the time the semester starts up again. Here's to making mid-year resoultions!

Congratulations on a successful show!!! I am leaving for The Big Apple on Thursday. Can you believe I have never been? I am so excited. It will be for an EMS conference but we will have a terrific time!

Umm, 2700 emails?? I need a xanax when my inbox reaches 50! Good luck with that! See you in 8 days.

Thanks Nicki! You should try a slice of pizza from Artichoke Pizza on 14th St near 1st Ave. And there is the best homemade ravioli I've ever had at Frank Restaurant on 88 2nd Ave (between 5th and 6th st).

See you soon :)
