"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

BlogHer10 Photo Post - Last Day In New York

Even though BlogHer10 had officially ended on Saturday the 7th, I had one more day. On Sunday morning, we had one last *A.L.I. get together. There were so many wonderful women there. I hesitate to try and name them all because I don't want to leave someone out and upset them. Here are a few of the pics from that get together...

After our A.L.I. get together wrapped up, Dora, Sunshine, and I took off for a little bit of sight seeing. We ate at a nice little hamburger place (loved the onion rings) that I can't remember the name of (what's it called Dora?). and then headed over to wander through FAO Schwartz. When Miss Sunshine started getting tired, Dora headed home for the evening and I hung out until it was time for me to catch a cab to the bus station. Here's teh rest of the day...

appears to be going up her nose

Oh, I love reliving that day with you through your photos.

But I'm mad I missed Aunt Becky!

Cute sailors!

Love these photos! The ALI meetup looked awesome. And you, Dora and Sunshine looked like you had so much fun in FAO Schwartz! I'm jealous of you guys getting to try on the Sorting Hat :D

It's awesome getting to put some faces to names I've known for years!

Dora said...

Great pics! It was such a wonderful day. Such incredible warm and loving energy. How awesome to feel so comfortable handing my daughter to a blogger and going off with another blogger to the hotel's Starbux. And when I returned, she was in the caring arms of a different blogger.

Oh, the burger place was Pop Burger.

Well Sunshine was the 'it' girl, I guess! I loved her T, and of Calliope's son as well.

I really think our children's lives are so 'attached' to the internet through us.

Wonderful pics.

And why are sailor pics always so romatic?
