I absolutely love New York City. I totally get that it’s not for everyone though. The way New Yorkers drive down narrow roads weaving in and out of lanes to the point where you just don’t look out the window, the waft of urine that hits you every 3 to 4 blocks or so, the people pushing past you as you speed down the cross walk. It ain’t everybody’s cup of tea, but it’s SO mine. If it weren’t for the lack of sweet tea in restaurants, the lack of ice in drinks at restaurants (weird), and the lack of Whataburger, I would move to NYC in a heartbeat. With recent business trips I have gotten to re-live the glory days and much more. Here are a few highlights and also some tips if you are planning a trip to New York from a New York enthusiast!
Here’s a recap of one of my favorite times as a mom so far and that’s when we took Cami to the beach for the first time. Seeing and feeling the sand and the waves through her eyes was amazing. This also was a trip where I embraced my new “mom-bod” and wore a swim suit for the first time since having Cami!
A lot of the locals, though fashionable, like to keep the colors to neutrals, black, and white. I’m not about that life! With my H&M dress in tow I hit the town, and my meeting with this gold and royal “floral brights” frock and I didn’t look back.
