Bucket list

I don't really have a bucket list. If I did, one item would have been checked off last night. 

What was it? I attended the organ dedication concert at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts with my aunt Betty, cousin Carol and my husband Steve. (An by organ, I mean the instrument, not a body part!) The new Casavant organ has  5548 pipes. It's beautiful. Though I never thought one way or another about attending an organ concert, I'm glad I did.  

Bucket List Item #1: Attend an organ dedication. Check.

A wild & wonderful life in NYC

I ♥ NYC. So when my husband, who had meetings in the area, asked me if I wanted to meet him there for the weekend, I said, "Heck yes!" 

There is nothing better than spending time with my man in one of the "funnest" cities in the country.

We ate (at a restaurant famous for celebrity sighting) the best banana cream pie. The waiter told us that it was Joan Rivers' favorite. I can't speak for Joan--we did not visit with her--but the pie was fab!

We saw two great Broadway shows. One at Lincoln Center - beautiful.

We stopped by to say hello to a friend at Olde Good Things, an amazing store that uses proceeds to support an orphanage in Haiti.  

We spotted two celebrities.

We laughed, talked, slept in, walked, taxied, and read.

I hope New York never goes away.
