Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.

..and a few friends who don’t mind crashing on your couch instead of enjoying one of these well-appointed guest rooms during their NYC visits.
We’ve had more lovely people than I can count take up residence in our living room this past year. Lots of them were somewhat surprised by the lack of space, but it has always provided for an intimate visit.
I’m betting our houseguests didn’t realize that staying in our cozy apartment necessitated having to relinquish all personal boundaries and privacy but honestly, there’s been no better way to catch up than introducing Jack’s friends to the newest episode of Dance Moms while we use their suitcases as a substitute ottoman.
My beautiful friend, Elizabeth, is coming to the city to visit this weekend. Part of me wishes I could assume the actual role of hostess and have one of these amazing guest spaces to offer instead of a living room campout session.
But right now, I just can’t imagine things being any other way.
