Mom in The City: Part V

Not too many days ago, my mom flew to visit us here in New York. Just as with any other visit she’s made, it’s hard to believe this one has already come and gone. Oh, but what a fun four days we had together though. We made sure not to make any plans for the weekend prior to her arrival, as we both knew no agenda meant absolutely no rushing. Looking back, that was the best decision. Four days spent in total relaxation catching up was exactly what the two of us needed.

Parentals Take on New York City

You know when your parents come to visit you in the city — especially when your Dad hasn’t been to New York since the 70’s (!!!) — you’ve got to show them the best time. Well, with all the smiles, laughter, and sore feet that were brought on last weekend, I think it’s safe to say Derek and I did just that. I’ll skip the time-passes-too-fast rant, and jump right to the part of I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact their visit has already come and gone.

Claire & Jenna Take on The City

Last weekend, my older sister, Claire and her best friend, Jenna, flew up to New York to spend a few days with us. Even though I cannot really comprehend how their visit has already come and gone (time, won’t you just slow down, even a little?) I’m so excited to share some of the photos from their time in the city. And since we practically walked them to death to see as many sights as we could squeeze in a day, there are BUNCH of pics to share.

Since we haven’t been back to North Carolina since Christmas, I was literally counting down till their visit.

Birthday Love: I’m Feeling 24!

Somehow, within the blink of an eye it seems, I now find myself officially at the age of twenty-four. Gah, even writing that feels so weird! I know everyone says this, but seriously, how does time pass so quickly? I’m telling you, this birthday really did sneak up on me, but oh what an amazing day it was.

A Weekend in Boston

Back in the summer, my parents, Derek & I thought it would be an awesome idea to plan a fall trip to Boston. None of us had ever been to this city, and I’d always wanted to see it this time of the year. So, we plotted and planned, and all flew in Thursday night to have a long weekend full of relaxing and catching up. And just like any other weekend or trip, I cannot believe this one has come and gone.
