Someone Heard Me

(Someday really soon my retail shop)
Icicles are hanging everywhere and you can barely see around street corners. The snow in our state has reached an all time high and it hasn't stopped. Just the other day I was saying  that I needed a vacation.
The children have been getting a nice vacation. If I count the days I think they have gone to school 6 days in 3 weeks. Remember snow days? Those were great. 
Call it cabin fever or children overload, the need for a vacation this week has made me less than chipper at times. So when getting an email on Etsy about a photo shoot in NYC and being featured in a magazine I jumped on it. 
I know I promised myself that I would never visit New York City in the winter ever again but that was dragging a 4 year old around and carrying a 1 year old all bundled up. So next Friday I will be traveling on a train, kid free, into the big apple to be part of a photo shoot for Inc Magazine.
So you see, the sun can come out and melt the icicles. Someone somewhere heard me and I am thankful for that. Now what should I wear? What things from my shop should I bring? Should I make new stuff just for the shoot?
