travel: new york minute

 I am off to the Big Apple for a few days of wining, dining and retail therapy all in the company of good friends and perfect weather!

My love for New York began at 8 years old with the time I spent alongside my aunt, who brought me on business trips and for-fun excursions several times a year. We shopped, dined at fabulous restaurants, saw shows, went ice skating, took in all the sights and discovered the New York Palace long before the days of Serena van der Woodsen and the cast of Gossip Girl.

By the time I was a freshman in high school, there was no place in the world I wanted to be aside from New York City (other than Los Angeles but that probably had something to do with my aspiring acting career at the time, ha!). I competed in theater and film competitions in the summertime and loved every single thing about the city lights. Somewhere in those four years of all-girls school, college football, sororities and collegetowns became more appealing and I traded monologues for politics and events. However, with NYC just a short train ride away from DC, it’s one of my favorite weekend trips (especially come fall weather).

This weekend, I am staying with my lifelong BFF in her adorable apartment and have fun dates planned with some of my favorite NYC bloggers —  Carly (The College Prepster) and Evann (Evann Clingan).

Expect a full report from the weekend come Monday!
