Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays :)
I had a great Christmas and I decided to take the week off work and go to New York City between Christmas and New Years. I'm sure I've mentioned it here before, but I love love love that city so much, and it's even more amazing at this time of the year. I met up with a friend there and, as always, we had a great time!
I can wander around NYC for hours doing absolutely nothing and be totally happy so we did a lot of walking and admiring the decorations. I love Bryant Park and I was happy to see that the shops were still up there since it reminds me of the European Christmas markets I miss so much! We also ducked into the library to warm up a bit and the architecture in that building is unbelievable. Obviously I had to go see the tree at Rockefeller, both during the day and at night :P
We did some window shopping along 5th Avenue and at Columbus Circle. I love looking at all the higher end stores even though buying anything would mean not being able to afford to go to NYC a few times a year - so not worth it ;)!
On Sunday afternoon, I went to see the Nutcracker, which was really good, although I will admit I preferred the Rockettes show I went to last year. After that I walked around Central Park for a while before I had to head to the airport. It was so nice to finally see the park with a little snow :)
I get sad every time I leave the city, but the plan is to return in April to run the More/Fitness Magazine half-marathon. I seriously can't wait!
