New York Weekend

Friday October 16, 2015   

A couple of weekends ago it was my wedding anniversary and I was surprised with a roadtrip to New York! I never got a chance to post photos (the few I have) but I wanted to do that now. It was probably one of the best trips to NYC I’ve had over the years. Maybe because I didn’t have to plan it? Maybe because it was a total surprise? Maybe because my phone was dead 80% of the time so I wasn’t always shoving a lens in my face? Probably a bit of everything.

The first place we stopped was Catbird in Brooklyn because I had a gift certificate. I picked up quite a few things with my main purchase being one of their Mermaid’s Treasure rings. The other planned stop was the Empire State Building at Midnight. He had pre-purchased tickets online so there was no waiting in line. Of all the times I’ve been in town I never visited the building. It was wonderful. Touristy but wonderful. The view was breathtaking. It was a bit chilly, dark, mood lighting, and they had a jazz player in the main hall. It wasn’t too crowded and we could just stand around until we were ready to leave on our own.

    Going on a trip someone else plans is somehow really wonderful, isn’t it?

  2. I’ve never been on the Empire State Building before but I have been on the Rockefeller building. That’s so nice of your husband to plan the trip for you as a surprise. I’m usually always the one planning too.
