This Thursday doesn’t throwback very far.
It goes just a hop skip and a jump back to 2010 and covers Jon and my first trip to NYC. He surprised me with tickets to Wicked as a Christmas gift and we planned our trip for the following April.
Well Jon surprised me AGAIN a few weeks ago when he told me we were going back to NYC for our 1 year anniversary! We are leaving this Saturday morning and I am so excited.
Here we are at the then brand new Yankee Stadium! It was Jackie Robinson day and everyone got a free hat.
Our first trip we did all the mandatory touristy stuff because you just never know if you’re ever going back. We covered A LOT of ground. The Met, little italy, chinatown, 9/11 site, famous sandwich and pizza joints etc.
Of COURSE we went to see Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. I’m half tempted to do this again just to experience the spectacular view of city from the water. Our first night in NYC we spent wandering around and marveling at Time’s Square.This is me doing my very best ‘native new yorker’ pose. I’ve even got the Starbucks!As I’m sure most people do, I fell madly in love with Central Park. You can just look and look and look and never soak it all in. To think, just 4 months after this photo was taken, we were engaged! So THAT’S why he
made let me try on engagement rings at the NYC David Yurman boutique.
We had such a great time and I feel so lucky to be able to go back. We’re staying in a different part of Manhattan this trip and will have many new things to discover and explore. So far our only concrete plans are a few dinners, shopping of course, wandering, and using our Monday tickets that Jon won to see David Letterman! Everybody look for us!
