on july 19th, i turned 28 and got to ring in my birthday in new york city! i figured that if dylan got to turn 29 in italy, it was only fair i got a small getaway for my birthday! we decided to drive and started our morning around 5:30 to then get into the city around 4pm.
on the road again.
i love snapchat stickers.
we stayed at the eventi hotel and loved it.
view of the empire state building from our room.
love this city.
the best part of the hotel? every night from 5-6 they have a wine reception on the terrace, meaning free wine and sangria (unlimited) for that hour. awesome.
high line sunsets.
saturday morning started out rather gloomy, but turned right around by 10am.
we made sure to be back for another wine hour.
have you ever heard of those silent clubs? you wear headphones and that's where the music is played? we were walking by a park one a free one was happening and figured we had to try it out for about 5 minutes.
* please note * there were actually people older than the children that happen be in our shot! we didn't join a kids party. anyways, it was funny and totally weird.
when in new york, a comedy bar is a must.
goodbye new york. you were fun.
on the long journey home.
we walked and walked and walked, just like we do every time we visit; from the west village all the way up to central park. we come back with sore feet, but it's always worth it.
