Today is my birthday, and I’m tagging along on a business trip with Brian to New York this morning. I’ve only spent one day in New York, and it was several years ago on a big group trip, so this time I trust I’ll get to do much more personal exploring. Lucky for me, I have two days this time around, and several friends in the city who I’ll be spending time with throughout my second day there.
Tonight, Brian and I are headed to ABC Kitchen for a celebratory dinner. Then tomorrow—if all goes to plan—I’ll spend the morning with my friend Jenn, meet up with Ashley for lunch and a tour of the BuzzFeed offices where she works, and then grab some afternoon coffee with Libby before dinner with my hubby and his coworkers. All in all, a great couple of days if you ask me!
Later this week, we’ll visit my parents for a few days and also celebrate a much more significant birthday: my grandmother’s 90th! Overall, it’s vacation week on the east coast for me and I’m thrilled about it. Twenty seven is already feeling really lovely.
P.S. How I felt about turning 26. Also, some footage my dad posted on YouTube from a birthday previous—one when I wore white tights and had a very blonde bowl cut…
