Mama bird flew the nest! I recently took a trip to New York City with my friend. No husband, no kids. It was the first time I had left the kiddos for more than a few hours with my husband. This was a big deal, in fact, this was a huge milestone for us all. Happily, everyone survived. I missed my family like crazy, but I so enjoyed strolling the city streets, eating at a leisurely pace, exploring bustling neighbourhoods and shopping with no distraction (and no stroller!). It was a surreal experience to have no schedule and to do as I wished -- a true luxury.
Now let's kick off this weekend with an ode to NYC. Here's Empire State of Mind, one of my favourite songs about the vibrant city that is New York City.
