a few weeks ago, kate spade saturday sent us on a little adventure doing things out and about in nyc to see what their new window-shopping-on-the-go-experience is like. in between shopping and getting our special delivery, josh and i went on a sailing lesson on the hudson river! josh grew up sailing in florida so he feels at home on the water but since i’ve only been one other time in my life (when we went in the DR a few years ago) i felt like such a wimp when we got onto the water and i was already like, “turn this boat around!” ;) but i will admit that after a while i felt a little more at ease. and when you watch someone you love having the time of their life in their element, it’s kind of impossible not to have a little fun yourself, too. also, hey new york city–you sure are beautiful to see from the water!
^^^not a bad view.^^^
^^^it was fun watching josh run all around the sail boat putting up sails or shifting them or whatever it is you call all that sailing lingo. (i have already forgotten!) also, can i toot my own horn here and say that i steered the sailboat the entire time? because i did. i did!^^^
^^^when we finished josh was like, “i can’t wait to teach the kids how to sail” and then it hit me, i’m going to be such a fun mom in a few years when papa teaches the kids how to play tennis and snowboard and sail and i’m always standing right off the court, or on the shore or in the snow lodge yelling “be careful! be careful!” all day long. haha. i’m kidding. but seriously.^^^
