so long, sweet summer.

Oh sweet labor day,
your weekend signals the close of summer and the nudge to pack away the white pants.

But, for many, myself included, you also cue the thrill of something new. The best season of all is peeking around the corner (if we’re lucky). True, I’ve already planned my 3rd Annual Fall Party and I’m currently burning a pumpkin spice candle as I write this, BUT I’m actually trying to hold on to the sunshine just a little bit longer this year.

It’s been an extraordinary summer. Did we go on any huge trips? No. Did we have any life-altering events happen? Not really. But sometimes isn’t that the best summer of all? Little bits of joy coupled together to create a beautiful summer of memories.

And yet,

Weekend Picturebook: NYC

F R I D A Y 

[late flight in – so, amazing pizza at our hotel restaurant (you can read more about here), and drinks at our rooftop bar with these views || also, how cute is this little hotel room?]

S A T U R D A Y [up and at ’em, ready for shopping! husband’s only request in new york was to go to the nintendo store … just like a kid in a candy store]
[more shopping and central park views]
((not pictured: a glass of pinot by the lake and delicious shake shack lunch after a loooong day of walking))


[ready to brave the weather for our sunset sailboat ride]
[despite the drizzle (then eventual downpour), we had an incredible time on the Hudson in our sailboat. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!]

[post-dinner jazz session in an underground cafe in greenwich village – perfect end to the evening]

S U N D A Y 

[sadly, we woke to more rain so it put a damper on some of our plans, but instead led us to eat an incredible brunch in west village][bucket list: walk the brooklyn bridge – check! so much fun!]

[explored dumbo, brooklyn heights + another awesome rooftop bar || next time we’re staying in brooklyn!]

M O N D A Y 

[late morning risers – I could not get over this comfy bed and these views || did I mention they also had automated blackout shades?!]

[took a 4-mile stroll for none other than our favorite cookies, then enjoyed them with coffee in central park]

[final hours in the city spent at The Met – who knew this rooftop garden was up here?!]

Until we meet again, NYC.
