Recently, I received an email from Nicki, who had just discovered my blog. She said we had so many things in common and wanted to thank me for pointing her in the direction of Kinokuniya bookstores. I asked which location she visited and found out she lives in NYC. I mentioned I was going on a trip there soon and she asked if I would like any suggestions of places to visit. From a real New Yorker? Absolutely! What came next I couldn't even believe.
Nicki sent me this beautiful package, with a guidebook she put together for me complete with an embroidered cover. What did I do to deserve such a thing?
It's pretty much the best thing I've ever received in the mail. The guide book is divided up into neighborhoods and has a little bit of history, description, and must see suggestions if I only have time for a few stops in each place. Super helpful (closed on sunday/monday and hard to find, but just go up to 2nd floor) and each suggestion is numbered, with a coordinating map so it's easy to find!
I just have a look of awe on my face every time I look through it. So thoughtful! Nicki and I are going to meet up one day while I'm in town and I'm very much looking forward to meeting my new friend!
I have a few posts scheduled while I'm gone. Have a wonderful week everyone!
