I heart NY

Last week my husband and I went to New York City. 

It was glorious. 

I have always loved the city. When I was 13 I read a book about friends who lived in the city and from that moment on I was in love. All I wanted to do was live visit. 

When I was 14 my mom and I took our first mother daughter trip and where did we go?

You guessed it...New York City...Manhattan...the big apple...

It was awesome. We did all the touristy things. Ate at great restaurants. Saw The Phantom and Beauty and the Beast. 


I loved it even more. 

We went a few times growing up. And the last time my fiance came with us.

So I haven't been since before we got married 7  years ago. 

I miss it already. 

We did the MET and they had a street fair and we shopped. We walked through Central Park and saw Mary Poppins which was fantastic and we ate at some amazing restaurants. Delicious.

Fondue at the Artisinal Bistro, A chocolate pizza at Max Brenner's and the most amazing italian food ever...whoa! 

We talked about when we would bring the kids and how much fun they would have. 

On Monday my husband went to his work conference so I was alone most of the day. 
And for a split second I was a bit intimidated. I felt alone, insecure and thought "what am I going to do all by myself?"

Well, I got over it!

It was the best day. The most refreshing day. 

It started with a croissant and a latte, lots of shopping (by myself without a stroller!) I walked down 6th to Bryant Part and the NYC library, I crossed over to 5th and did lots of shopping. H&M, Zara, Jimmy Choo (If only)...I bought some shoes, a dress, jewelry, pants and two shirts. I then bought a book and headed to the park. I found a grassy knoll and people watched and read. I then headed back to the hotel and stopped in at Manolo Blahnik's! A perfect end for this shoe loving girl! 

I could live there. No problem. I would really enjoy that. Maybe not forever, but given the chance....You never know.
