One week ago...

... I was headed into NYC.  Wow!  Last Tuesday was a whirlwind day, followed by a full week, and it has taken me until now to wind down and tell you about it.

Tuesday was Nate Day when a group of bloggers filled the studio for a taping of The Nate Berkus Show.  I was delighted to be part of this group.  I am learning that bloggers are a very special type of people.  They are very giving, friendly and welcoming.  What a fantastic group of people to spend the day with!

The day started off with taking the train into the city that morning with Liz from Shorely Chic.  We met up with Jess from The Entertaining House to go to brunch with Marcy from Irwin Feld, Catherine from Avery Design Interiors, Maybelline from Frou La La, and Jonathan from Jonathan Legate.

May, Liz, Jess, Catherine, Marcy, me, Jonathan

We arrived at the studio, and after waiting in line we were escorted in and were split up into two groups. While we were waiting, we got to chat and talk and visit with the others in the room. What fun! To have people that I've been reading - and feel like I know so well! - sitting and chatting with me was a fabulous experience. There was so much talent in that building!

We were brought into the studio and the show coordinator, Dena Blizzard, took the stage and told us what to expect. She did a great job of guiding us through the segments of the show and she kept us laughing.

Nate was a charming host.  He has so much warmth and charisma that it just oozes.  I was thrilled that he did a segment with blogger Susan Brinson (House of Brinson) showing photos from her creative home.  I had thought that it was going to be a show about bloggers - with examples of their work and interviews, but that was my misperception - no one had said that - but I was a bit disappointed that more bloggers weren't featured.  I enjoyed seeing the show anyway and Nate very graciously stayed after the show and answered our questions.

After the show, we went to a party that The Nest held (thanks Camila for arranging that!).  It was a terrific way to kick back and spend some more time chatting with everyone.

NYC is such a high-energy city and being with such a dynamic, energetic group was a thrill! {Chanee from {me}longings has put together a list of some of bloggers who went to the show.} To follow along with them on their blogs or on twitter, I think you too will find a talented group of people who are willing to share their thoughts and their friendship.  I'm delighted to know this fabulous group!



  1. Wonderful review, and I think you're right-given the fact that they asked for examples of our work (and then did NOTHING with them) it was frustrating.

    Without them saying it, we were led to believe that we'd be more involved.

    It was lovely to meet you in real life last week!
    Until we meet again, (on Twitter or in real life!) be well.

  2. sweet post, so glad we had such nice time together!

  3. That sounds so fun -- I am a wee bit jealous...I love Nate!

    And thank you for your sweet and supportive comment on my "bittersweet" post yesterday.

  4. Looks like you had a wonderful day Marcy. Interestingly your thoughts about the content of the Show have been echoed by other Bloggers. AS you said, it's all in the interpretation!

Thank you for joining in the conversation! I appreciate your thoughts.
