Seeing the Sights in NYC
"These little town blues..."
Oh I love New York. I can't believe last week was my fourth visit to NYC! I had so much fun seeing the sights with Danielle. Even though she is one of my closest friends last week was the first time we spent more than 30 minutes together, face-to-face! We met in person for the first time when my mom and I went to New York last Christmas. This time around we had a few days to hang out together. Thank you for being such a awesome host and tour guide Danielle! You are the best.
- On the first night after dinner we walked along the High Line gardens. The view and the flowers were just so beautiful. I wanted to stay up there near the old buildings all night. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip and it was free!
- We saw Newsies on Broadway! It was awesome. I can't believe I haven't seen the movie yet! That needs to change soon. Young Christian Bale, singing and dancing? Come on! ;)
- My favorite exhibit at the Met was Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. Unfortunately no photographs were allowed inside the special exhibitions, but it was so so SO incredible. The fashions were jaw-dropping. I didn't expect the words and quotes from each designer to give me such inspiration. We also explored the paintings. The two above are by Vincent van Gogh and Henri Fantin-Latouer. The views from the rooftop garden were incredible!
- I went to Brooklyn for the first time this trip and had the opportunity to tour Etsy HQ thanks to my friend Cheyne, the Etsy teams coordinator and former Etsy Dallas member. It was so exciting to get the grand tour of the offices! I would love to work in such a creative environment!
Where have you travelled this summer?
