i Heart ny

A quick photo recap of some ny highlights and a few things I learned.
  • Have I mentioned my newly developed fear of flying?  Traveling with co-workers makes it really hard to go through my usual state of panic rituals while flying.  I chose panic/the hopes for normalcy over my usual cloud of xanax induced calm.  It was a toss up, but I actually made it without making too much of a scene.  Does a magazine over my face at some point count along with a "what's that sound?" and a  "are we about to land?"  No, I kept my cool for the most part and actually think I can do it again...you don't think my co-workers will mind traveling with me, my husband and two kids under five on my next trip, do you?
  • I am much more fun when out of town and a.) don't have to come home to a babysitter and pretend to act normal and b.) won't be wakened at 6am by two little munchkins
  •  I need a night or two away, even just twice a year, to regroup and re-energize.  It's just good for everyone.
  • I heart ny...the restaurants, the energy, the people, people watching, shopping...heart it all.
Barolo Restaurant - Soho

My amazing first meal:  Spaghetti al Cartoccio
 EATALY!  The largest indoor Italian Market in the world does not disappoint!
    

 The HighLine...my new favorite ny spot
 When you push the heart on the water fountain a little girl's voice begins quoting Shakespeare...sigh...


Fun stores...

Great street vendors...

Cheers to a wonderful city.   Until next time...

I'm soo much more fun when I don't have the munchkin wake up call! Sounds like a great trip. That heart button is too sweet!

I seriously feel like I wrote this... the flying... the "more fun" part... the love of NY... all of it.

I'm so glad you had the chance to refresh, renew, and re-energize.

Now, back to the Shred?? :)
