A Week in NYC

IMG_0941I always look forward to our annual trip to NYC for the holidays. This year I was able to spend more time in the city than usual (we have relatives just outside of the city, so we always spend a few days there as well), so I was able to explore more than I normally would. The first day my sister and I shopped around Madison Ave. and stopped in Zara (as we don’t have it in NC). We met our friend Traci for dinner in Nolita afterwards and didn’t finish until about 10 p.m., so we headed home — we were so tired!

The second day we walked through west village and stopped at a cute little cafe where I ordered the best chicken soup of my life (I wasn’t feeling wonderful, and it hit the spot)! They poached two eggs in it — I don’t think I’m ever going to make chicken soup without eggs again FYI! Definitely try it if you can!

We enjoyed a few days in the suburbs with family on Christmas Eve and Christmas day on both my mom and dad’s side. Afterwards, we headed back into the city with my parents this time, and we explored all of the beautiful windows  in Bergdorf Goodman and Saks, as well as seeing the tree in Rockefeller Center. We also ate at a gorgeous cafe for brunch called Rosemary. The food was incredible, and the decor was stunning — I couldn’t stop looking! Definitely try it out if you’re ever in west village!

Overall it was a wonderful trip as usual! Below are a few of the photos I took. Enjoy!
