After we found out that we wouldn’t be able to go back to Canada for Christmas to be with Randy’s family (due to work commitments, etc) we decided to start planning a weekend getaway to New York City. We’ve both been to NYC before, but never at Christmas time and never for our very own ‘baby-moon’! It was so nice to get away and have one final trip with just the two of us (since we know once Baby E arrives in April there won’t be much time for that!).
I think this was also the first trip where I decided to leave my camera at home…so you’ll have to enjoy our iPhone photographs and lots of selfies! But it was so refreshing to just be able to soak up our time together and snap a few photographs every now and again! We really did SO much in the four days we spent in the city! From Randy surprising me for my birthday with high tea at the Fairmont Plaza (FYI they do a full gluten free tea and it is the best.thing.ever!) to our very first time seeing the Rockettes and scoring popcorn for free!, to eating at a one star Michelin restaurant (which was amazing!!), to enjoying the tiniest bit of snow on our walk from the cab into the Nutcracker and then so much more!
Once home, we both agreed that it was the very best trip and we were so glad we decided to just book our tickets and get away!(SO thrilled to have finally gone to Laduree that we ended up going twice – thanks to one sweet pup eating our first box of macarons! ha!) (Our friends apartment had a rock climbing wall in their building, so of course Randy had to test it out!)
