Today it’s raining here on our coast and instantly puts me in a slower pace and the babies in sweet slumbers. While they’re napping I thought I’d recap our anniversary from two weeks ago. I snapchatted most of the day because I had left my camera at home and my phone library was full! I really need to update my photos and get a clean slate. I blame it on my two adorable little girls! I can’t resist capturing all their moments. #storyofmylife
With many trips coming up this winter we wanted to stick to something close by so NYC it was. The temperature outside was cool and crisp so I made sure to bundle ourselves up in sweaters and blankets! The girls behaved so well on the way there which was surprising because we didn’t even have breakfast.
We wanted to save our appetites for Laduree: a darling french little brunch spot in the Soho neighborhood! Most of the time we go with the flow as far as trying new places but Roman wanted to go to a watch show in the area it worked out nicely:) Everything about this french inspired, macaron-loving brunch place was so classy! The fresh flowers, the waiters, the glamed-out high chair, the frilly menus, and even our tufted teal bench…
They also had a garden seating area! I got a delicious smoked salmon sandwich and Roman ordered some eggs benedict! The food was very tasty and really exceeded our expectations.
While taking a walk Fiona noticed the painted ballerina and her face lit up! We ended up doing a few twirls being the girls we are:) The day was full of sweet memories. Soho reminds me of Paris with it’s cobblestone streets and pretty buildings. This trip made me realize how most of NYC we never get to see. There are so many cute cafes, hotels, and just random little places that we haven’t heard about! When I first moved to New Jersey I wasn’t a big fan of NYC but now I’m beginning to realize why so many people love it (the husband especially)!
Then we headed to Central Park. My all time favorite spot in the whole city. On the way over both the girls fell asleep for their naptime so we just sat in our car and talked for about an hour and half. It was a nice break from the walking and we got some “us” time in! Central Park was alive and so beautiful in October! We really enjoyed the picturesque views and the autumn foliage all around! Fiona got to have some playground time. It was getting close to dinner and both of us were craving some soup so we decided to try something new and tried pho soup right before heading out.
We came home put on our PJS and were ready to hit the sack! I love when we do family days like this and seeing the girls take in the world through their little eyes brings me so much happiness. Thanks to my honey for making it the best weekend ever! Thankful to God for all his blessings and especially for being with us this past year!
To many more years of joy and happiness! xoxo
