When Mark’s mom is here, she is usually content to stay home and hang out with the girls, but one thing we wanted to do was take her to the High Line, our new favorite place to take out of town guests. I loved how the landscaping, flowers and plants changed with the season and look forward to visiting in the winter (can you imagine how beautiful this place will look during a snowfall?). You can see more photos of the High Line from our first trip here.
I got a totally unexpected email today from Auster Events, the Brooklyn firm that organizes the Atlantic Antic. They read the blog post about our Antic experience and apologized for their misjudgment in placing us in the “kids” block (I didn’t even know we were in the kids section). I was floored and touched by their email. This is how you conduct a business, folks – make even the smallest vendor feel important and wanted. We decided right then and there that we’ll give the Antic another go next year, armed with lessons learned from this year’s experience.
Oh, and our leftover hot chocolate didn’t go to waste. We brought it over to Mia’s class picnic this afternoon, which was held right across the street from our house, luckily enough. It was enjoyed by all.
One last thing. I get emailed a lot of the same questions, so I made an FAQ. Look to your left under “About”.
