I've just returned from spending four glorious days with my boyfriend, in New York. My boyfriend doesn't live in New York, my boyfriend IS New York.
It's a long distance relationship that started many, many years ago, and we don't see each other very often, but thoughts of him keep me going when things get tough around here, and I know that if I can just spend a few days with him, I'll be good to go for at least a few months.
What do I love about my boyfriend? Well, I'm glad you asked....

He can be sweet....
pumpkin-seed crusted mahi mahi tacos at the Rocking Horse Cafe
or spicy, depending on what I'm in the mood for (note: The Rocking Horse Cafe has the most delicious salsa I've ever tasted)
puppies in the window of Citipup in Chelsea
New York understands how much I want a dog of my own, and until that is possible, provides me with lots of opportunities to cuddle adorable pups.

New York knows how to decorate for the holidays
and has good taste in art

New York embraces the modern, and recognizes the value of the past

New York has the most stylish, fabulous friends, and doesn't mind sharing them with me

When I'm spending time with my boyfriend, I'm very, very happy! And really, isn't that what want out of our relationships?
I have a ton of photos to edit, so in the meantime, you can see some photos from my adventures at the Manhattan Vintage Show on the Idiosyncratic Fashionista's blog. Later this week - the eye candy overload of "Fashion Underground: The World of Susanne Bartsch" at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
