Crazy Eastern Adventures

This past week, I have had the opportunity to experience a fast forward tour of NY and New England and it has been amazing!
The tour started with the PhotoPlus Expo in NYC where Amber Holritz and I had the opportunity to stay with THE Eric Laurits. He truly was the BEST host{ess} ;)
(note: some images were jacked from the Holritz blog)

Thursday was the FF>> tour of NY with a trip to the Cloisters, a visit to Rockafeller Center and St Patricks Cathedral, then dinner in Times Square followed by a fun ride aboard the Staten Island Ferry.

Friday, Eric and I worked the shootsac booth to raise funds for the gift of sight charity (see a few posts down for details...) we talked so much we nearly lost use of our vocal chords. BUT, check out the sweet shirts we had made!

We jetted out of the city Friday night and made our way up to Eric's parents house in Boston (and in case you didn't know, the Sox are off to the world series...we are gearing up to watch the first game as I type this!).

So Saturday we went up to Ipswitch River and fed the Chickadees! :) Eric was highly entertaining and I got photos to prove it!

Check out Boston in the Fall...

Next it was onto Maine. Um,.... all I have to say about Maine is that I am officially in love and want to move there. Its GORGEOUS!!! literally GORGEOUS.
We stayed at the Laurits Family Cottage before heading back to NYC on Monday. Here is a shot I grabbed as we were pulling into the cottage...

WHEW! talk about whirlwind!
I did a fun shoot this weekend while we were in Maine.... I cant wait to show you!

Thats all for now :)
