New York, New York

Isn’t it every dreamers dream to live in New York City? In September, Daniel and I packed our bags and headed East. With luck on our side (and one amazing boss who said ‘yes,’) we were able to live and work remotely for a month in New York.

While a month will never feel long enough to fit in the countless things New York offers, it was enough to make us feel like we weren’t just on vacation. But even with our extended stay, it was hard to leave. It felt like every minute we spent exploring the city was well-spent, and yet we left with tons things left on our to-do list.

As a musical theater lover, having Broadway in my backyard was a REAL treat. While there, Daniel and I got in 3 plays – American in Paris [Gershwin + Ballet = swoon], Something Rotten [Bad boy Shakespeare + dancing eggs = lolz], and Chicago [A play that I will forever love, and Daniel’s first time seeing it]. We also went to the Apollo to see “Amateur Night at the Apollo” which was a f*cking BLAST.

We also ate…a lot. Pizza, pizza, Halal Brothers, soup dumplings in Chinatown, and more pizza. There were bagels, as well, and a whole slew of other delicious meals, but THE PIZZA. Bless you, Joe’s and Artichoke Basille’s.

We also walked so much that the copious amounts of pizza consumed was almost negated, the true benefit of living in NYC. And we took the subway enough for me to actually understand the geography of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Here are some of the highlights from our trip that we haven’t stopped thinking about. NYC, we love you.
