Last Days of NY

DAY SIX – TWELVE // On the last day that Anna was in New York with me, we walked around Central Park, visiting Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, and wandered over to where the rowboat rentals were (you know, the lake where Carrie Bradshaw fell into), only to find it CLOSED for the season! Oh, the woes we experienced when we found out! I was honestly surprised to see the trees bare of leaves in the middle of April. Wasn’t it spring…

From Dawn Till Dusk

NEW YORK, NEW YORK DAY FIVE // One of the main things we (or rather, I) wanted to do was get a taste of the famous New York cronut!

When you ask for the restaurant, the hostess brings you down a flight of stairs to the…

Confused by MoMA

DAY TWO, Pt. 2: Remember the first part of our day, when we visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art and I absolutely loved it?

I love seeing characters, seeing landscape, seeing the details and intricacies of the art pieces, and just the sheer amount of effort that the artist has put into their…
