a cup of new york jo.

if you’ve been reading along the last couple of weeks, it’s probably been hard to miss the fact that i’m heading to new york city on friday for a whole week! a trip to nyc is pricey, so i could never be enjoying this luxury without completely stressing, had it not been for the fact the joanna goddard of a cup of jo and i are trading places! and this, my dear friends is joanna’s lovely west village apartment, where i’ll be staying!

i couldn’t be more excited to stay in joanna’s beautiful home, which is also located in such a fab west village location. i’m anxious to visit some of the great new york spots y’all have shared with me too! if y’all have never swapped homes with friends across the world, i highly recommend it as a way to benefit both parties and save on travel expenses! i hope joanna and her family have a wonderful time staying in my san francisco home. happy trails to both of us!
