This past weekend we spent a day in NYC just the two of us. Since we have had Stella, we have not had that much time just the two of us, and though we love spending so much time with Stella, it was nice to have a day to spend together. Stella got to spend the entire day with my family…and they all had a great time too. We needed to go to NYC for Katie and Michael’s engagement session in Central Park, so we decided to go a little early and have a date.
We asked on FB for recommendations for great places to eat and ending up eating at 5 Napkin Burger which was amazing, we sat outside since it was such a gorgeous day and had fun watching people pass by on the street.
We took the subway over to the Empire State Building which is super touristy, but we did it anyway. The view from the top was spectacular, and we were able to see so far since it was such a clear day.
We did unfortunately get a little lost at one point so we took a picture to document our sad faces when we realized that we had been walking in the wrong direction on our way back to our car.
Katie and Michael are probably two of the sweetest people you could ever meet. When we met them in the park Katie gave me these gorgeous tulips. It was so sweet of them, and ironically I have been telling Jeremy for a few weeks that I wanted to get some tulips because they are just the perfect symbol of spring.
After we wrapped their gorgeous session they took us to The Magnolia, which is a fabulous bakery cafe in NYC. It was divine, Jeremy had a brownie, Michael had the banana pudding, and Katie and I each had the blueberry crumble…and let me tell you…I have never had a blueberry crumble near that good.
We drove home so grateful for life. We are thankful for what we do, and the opportunities that it has given us to meet some of the most amazing people. We are thankful for our family, and our precious little Stella who we couldn’t wait to see, and we are thankful for each other.
Here is a little sneak peek of Katie and Michael’s session in Central Park…I can’t wait to show you more of these two tomorrow!
