as you can see, it was a fabulous trip. i sort of hate that im just a visitor in NYC now, and not a local, but i love the city as much as ever. thanks mom for a great first trip back!

***both of the shows we saw were AMAZING, for two totally different reasons! anything goes is happy and funny, and war horse is emotional and intense, but i loved both of them so much. highly recommend!

snow!

the city has had QUITE the winter weather, lately! we’ve had lots of snow and it is pretty…until it gets gross 🙂 i went into the park the other day to capture some fresh snow before it turned into sludge.
