New York, New York

Nate & I were lucky enough to be invited to his friends wedding in Brooklyn last month. It was our first time in New York and as you might suspect we fell in love. Not ‘I’m gonna sell everything and move there right now’ kind of love (we may have done that after we visited Portland for the first time), but if an opportunity arose and we could move there I’d do it.┬áThat’s my favorite part about traveling! I like seeing what it would be like to live in a certain city for a few days. We have a short list of places we’d like to call home one day and I really hope New York becomes a reality eventually.

The wedding was fantastic! Miguel & Jon have been together for a long time and their love made the day so special. My favorite part was Miguel surprising Jon with his a capella group singing “God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys. Everyone was in tears by the end of it. We spent the afternoon dancing, drinking fancy signature cocktails, and eventually made our way to their bar in Park Slope. It was a great night!

The rest of our trip consisted of mostly sight seeing around town. New York is too big to see in one visit and I hope that we’ll be able to go back next year for a longer trip. I wish I had taken more pictures of everything but sometimes when I travel I get too caught up in soaking up my surroundings that I forget to take out my camera. It was really a magical trip and I’m so glad I got to experience NY for the first time with Nate.
