Goooood morning! It’s Monday & we are already back in the swing of things. Joe is at work, I picked up Penny from her babysitter, the laundry & the dishwasher is going, going and I am excited to be back at Hot tea and the Empty Seat. As much as I loved the hustle and bustle of the city, I do feel so blessed to live where we do. It’s semi-quiet, cozy, & very homey. (Of course my favorite thing about it is who I share it with.) Now for the really important stuff… New York City Pictures! Since I took about 1000+ pictures throughout the trip, I’m going to share a few here and there over the next few weeks so that you won’t be glued to your screen for the next 7 hours… 😉
If you ever get the opportunity to travel to NYC, do it! This was my first time ever being in New York! The first night, we stayed at Joe’s cousin’s house in Pennsylvania. Thanks Matt & Erika! The next morning, we took a two-hour train ride into New York City. For the next two nights, we stayed in the middle of Manhattan at an amazing hotel called the Affinia Hotel. I highly recommend going there! They let us check in early & they even gave us a complimentary room upgrade.. score! I’m not sure about the nightly rates at the Affinia since the trip was a surprise put together by my sweet husband. Enjoy!
Oh oh oh, I can’t forget the little clues that Joe gave me every few hours while we started our 10+ hour drive up north. Talk about clever. It’s a birthday gift that I will never forget. First up: a few shots from the train, our hotel suite, & Times Square!
Can you tell why I miss it already?!
I am so thankful for my husband’s love & thoughtfulness into my amazing birthday trip. Stay tuned for the next batch of pictures coming soon!
