New York City // See + Do around the big apple
Maybe the most picturesque part of NYC (I should know, I carry a camera everywhere I go ;), is DUMBO on the water's edge in Brooklyn. "DUMBO," an acronym for "down under the manhattan bridge overpass," is a tiny area of Brooklyn between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Flanked by these two giants, and facing the entire skyline of Manhattan, DUMBO is home to some of the best businesses, shopping, and events in Brooklyn.
My sister, Alyssa, and her husband Jackson, are moving to New York City! This is a dream come true. I can't count the number of times in the last few years, since moving to NYC, that I either silently or out loud wished that I could have a sister near. This solves practically the only problem I have with New York! (now if I can get a decent mountain to snowboard on, I'll never leave!!!)
Apparently every year for the last twelve, there has been a "Jazz Age Lawn Party" hosted on Governors Island in NYC! Most natives probably know about this, but I had to learn from our friends who are visiting/living in NYC for a few months.
I'm a big fan of New York City, but I'm especially in love with Brooklyn. And of all the things I like about Brooklyn, (at the risk of sounding mega cliche + touristy)... my favorite thing is the Brooklyn Bridge!
There's not very many things that rank higher on my "awesome list" (c'mon it's a real thing) that a snow day. The surprise of getting "free time" combined with the glorious lack of obligation is a beautiful thing.
I finally got bangs! and people... I love them. Evidence of my love? The increase of selfies in my photo stream in the last week
Alarm snoozed. Roll over to pretend for five more minutes that the inevitable can be forestalled. Roll out of bed. Late. Minutes to get ready. Rush out the door. Sound familiar?
Crown Heights in located smack dab in the center of Brooklyn. It's home to Caribbean beats, Jewish streets, and.... drumroll... ME! Tyler and I sort of stumbled into Crown Heights.
Ty has been growing this mane out for over a year and a half. His last real haircut was a few weeks before our wedding in July 2015! He's had a few trims since then, but always kept the length going.
Here's a little look-see around our second bedroom, or as we call it, our Airbnb suite ;) ;)
It took Tyler and I a few months to get together our own bedroom space, let alone furnish a second bedroom.
