New York is one of my favorite cities to visit, there is something romantic and magical there that I haven’t experienced anywhere else. My mom had never been so as a 30th birthday gift she offered to take me. A year and a half later we finally went! Just goes to show how fast time can fly by and how there is never the “perfect time” to take a vacation or spend some quality time with the people you love the most. Sometimes you just have to book the tickets, make the reservations and go! We had the most amazing time wandering around the city, exploring the art and history, and eating breakfast in bed while watching snow flurries outside!
While visiting the Empire State Building, I was so inspired by all of the Art Deco architectural details. I could geek out on the geometry patterns found in the windows but instead I chose to take a picture and make a couple necklace designs. What an impressive story that building has and unbelievable views.
After strategically planning a visit to the Metropolitan museum around their Saturday night live music and wine hour, we took a couple hours to admire 16th and 17th century European paintings. To be in the company of these ancient works of art in such a serene setting was incredibly humbling and peaceful especially in the midst of such a high energy city.
Above all, my favorite moments from this trip were when we sat down and shared a meal, drinks or just conversation. I will cherish these memories forever and am beyond grateful to my mom for taking me on this trip.
