It has now been over two years since I moved to New York and started calling this city home. But you know what, even after these two years, this place still amazes me. So much to see and do. So much to explore. And don’t even get me started on the countless new restaurants always popping up. I’m still trying to get through my lengthy list of all the ones I’m dying to chow down at.
After three years of Christmases in New York, Derek and I finally made it to the Rockefeller Rink for ice skating before we left to come home for the holidays. Of course, when you think about ice skating in the city, your mind immediately shifts to thoughts of Rockefeller Plaza. I guess that’s why I was always so against the idea, since I knew it would be us and a million other people crammed together trying to skate on a rink that is much smaller in reality than it appears on tv. Yet, this year was different.
Saying goodbye to 2015 is truly bittersweet. As I sit here looking back at all the pictures we managed to capture during these last 365 days, I cannot help but just grin from ear to ear. So many incredible memories were made, to say the least. I am so grateful for all the opportunities 2015 brought our way. From exploring more of this enchanting city we get to call home, to embarking on new adventures near and far, this past year was definitely one for the books.
Since the weather was surprisingly still very warm last weekend, Derek and I thought it’d be the perfect time to hop on the R-train and go see the lights at Dyker Heights. Neither one of us had ever seen this light show before, but apparently it’s a really big deal. So many “mcmansions” decked out in professionally decorated light displays. Yes, you read that right…professionally decorated!
It sure has been quite a while since I shared a “life lately” post. And with so much that has taken place over these past few weeks, I thought now would be a perfect time to share just that. Can you believe Christmas is only a week away?! My mind is still trying to process that statement. I still cannot believe our Peruvian adventure has come and gone, and the fact that we’re now halfway through December, well it’s truly shocking. I am excited Christmas is right around the corner, since that means it won’t be long before Derek and make our way down to North Carolina.
