new york!!

experiencing a whirlwind of a trip to New York City with my youngest sister Hazel. It was her college graduation celebration trip.

biking for hours in Central Park and was still not able to see it all

going to the Top Of The Rock during the day and going to the Empire State Building observation deck at night

eating our way thru a list of bakeries we bookmarked ahead of time. Hello Magnolia Bakery and Levain Bakery!

walking about 10+ miles daily. We loved walking, something we hardly do here in SoCal, so even though the subway was faster, if our destination was less than 3 miles, we opted to walk

visiting the best museums: The Met, MOMA, Copper Hewitt Design Museum and 911 Memorial & Museum

flying red eye and realizing I will never do that again

staying in a hotel a block from Central Park/Columbus Circle was the best location for us

living the tourist life all week since it was my sister’s first time in NYC, and I haven’t visited since my first time in 2004 (so much has changed!!)

watching The Knicks play at Madison Square Garden

being part of the audience for the Live With Kelly show taping and Norman Reedus was a guest

crying after facetiming with my hubby and little man. I missed them so much during the trip and I made sure to stay busy as to avoid feeling too homesick

feeling emotional while visiting the 911 Memorial & Museum


  1. i’m super jealous you went to a live with kelly showing! i love her! and levain bakery cookies….so delish. 🙂
