He Knows When You've Been Bad or Good...

...And he knows when you've been shopping in Soho. 

I've got three or four posts in my head and the pictures are all cropped and picked, but life in New York City seems to be getting in my way. There's Foodie Friday and Pink Saturday and Christmas at the Metropolitan Museum still to come. But instead of blogging I spent a lot of today getting myself organized. My decorations are now unpacked and on display. I've begun writing cards and I just spent an hour on Amazon figuring out a subscription to Teen Vogue for my cousin for Chanukah. I pushed the wrong send-to and you can imagine the rest. Happily the folks at Amazon Customer Service chat are very helpful, even at 11:00 at night.  

I had a wonderful afternoon in Soho -- south of Houston St. -- doing a little shopping, lots of looking in store windows and having coffee -- with my friend, Betsy. It was just the sweet afternoon with a friend that makes me realize how precious friendships are. We did try to go to Laduree Soho, for macarons, but there was a line on the sidewalk to enter to simply buy macarons and the restaurant was so crowded that we couldn't get coffee without a reservation. We'll try again in January.

I hope your day was as fun and productive and I hope you'll be back tomorrow for more glimpses of Christmas in New York. As always, thanks for visiting.

I've read posts from friends who have spent Christmas in New York City and it looks bigger than life! Of course, I have watched You've Got Mail a gazillion times and it always makes me want to visit :) Thanks so much for sharing your exciting city with me!

Funny I always wondered why it was called Soho, now I know. And would like to go there too.

Friendships are to be treasured for sure. Glad you took time to get together.

I'm glad that during this busy season you still have time to meet up with your best friend.
