April Photo Diary 2019 | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

I've been laying low in the blogosphere this month.
Not's just been an exceptionally busy month.
I split my time among three states........


Oh, and New Jersey, New York, and Florida.

Yup, the month was hectic.

Among the highlights:

We celebrated our 25th Anniversary! 💝💝

We saw Network, an amazing Broadway show with Bryan Cranston.

The fundraiser that I organized for my synagogue was attended by over 200 people.

We took a quick trip to Florida.

I hosted the first night of Passover.

We went to visit Junior Goo Shoes at school. 

Game of Thrones returned! 


I finally met a blog friend I've admired for years --
Suzan from Simply Vintageous!
Suzan is from Montreal, and on her recent trip to NYC 
to celebrate a big birthday, we met for lunch.
Yes, there was a picture, but I'm honoring her request not to post it.
Suzan doesn't blog anymore, but she is quite active on Instagram.
Check out her incredible photos and mini-stories here.  

And now, I'm off to catch a flight to Charleston 
for a girls' weekend to celebrate my sister's birthday!

Not quite the greeting we had hoped for on a quick trip to Florida.........

Sometimes you need a hot pretzel for lunch.

Spring is springing in the Big Apple.

It's not a photo diary without The Cardinal. Can't resist photos of him next to his faux twin.

"Summer In A Bottle" disappears from the shelves faster than daylight in winter, so I snagged it when I saw it.

Feeling nostaglic about my office on W. 42nd Street for over 20 year (circled). The building is now empty as HBO moved this month to NYC's trendiest new address, Hudson Yards.

That's a wrap.
Till next time........


  1. Some really beautiful shots from the month!

  2. Seems it was a busy month for everyone, but your adventures took the cake!

  3. Fun stuff---spring is cold wet and green here now. Daffy's were all smashed in the snow last Saturday---maybe tomorrow, (she keeps saying)!

  4. X marks the spot... Liberty was here! Nostalgia is a good thing.

  5. All your pictures look fabulous. Yum on the hot pretzel. We are still with rain everyday this week and cooler temps. Hope by next week it will warm up for us. Where do you get that wine that looks like something I need to try?

  6. It is amazing at how fast the month of April zoomed by -- and here we are in May. I so look forward to this time of year and how quickly it seems just a memory. Loved your photos. It is fun to go back and look at the places that once were our workaday worlds. . .

  7. Happy Anniversary and how awesome to go back to FL again. It sounds like a busy month but good. I enjoyed looking at the awesome photos.

  8. Great pictures and happy you had time with Goo Shoes Jr. Have to have a warm pretzel.

    Happy Anniversary and happy you had fun.

    Going to be a wet weekend in NJ. Not surprising for our spring. Still a bummer.



  9. What a great busy month of photos!!! I too have been SO absent from blogdom. Just so you know, I see your posts and always enjoy them. Happy Anniversary and keep celebrating all year. Hugs.

  10. Wow Amy you've been quite the busy bee!! Love spring in NYC, the air is alive with promise!

  11. Sounds a busy but fun time!
    Lovely seeing all of your photographs …
    My best wishes for your 25th Anniversary :)

    All the best Jan

  12. How fun that you got to meet Suzan in real life. I loved her blog. She is hilarious. It looks like you had a fabulous month. Happy Anniversary.

  13. Your shoe pictures are always so great! Love the real and faux cardinal pic too! A fun post to scroll through. Happy Spring!
