Another weekend in NY

Living in Ohio, sometimes it seems like my home, NY is just too far away. It’s too far for a weekend trip by car (it’s hard to rationalize 15 hours in the car for a day or two trip), and planes aren’t always the most affordable options. Luckily, for various reasons (some not-so-lucky), I’ve gotten a chance to go home and see my family quite a few times the past few months. And that includes this past weekend! A few people from my agency were being recognized, as well as a client I work on, and I was lucky enough to attend a formal event in New York City for the awards ceremony and celebration.

After the awards ceremony, I was lucky enough to spend some time in the city with my brother, and then some time upstate with my parents. It will be at least a month until I see them next – and probably the last time I visit my brother at his school before he graduates (I can’t believe my brother is graduating college this year!).

Some scenes from a great weekend:

Dinner with Greg. We waited outside this Indian Restaurant for 30 minutes and then were allowed into a scene with TONS of holiday and pepper lights.

and of course, some GREAT meals

It’s always so hard to leave – but after a great weekend with food and family, and one of my favorite cities, who can really complain? Here’s to a great week!

  1. You mean to tell me that 15 hours in a car isn’t worth it for 2 days in NYC??? Ha, I kid. ๐Ÿ™‚ Definitely not. But NYC is pretty amazing and I’d absolutely do it as much as I could. Looks like a fantastic weekend! I love Indian food! And that view! When I visited NYC about a month ago I made sure to hit up a bar that had had an open rooftop so I could snag a view like that. #freezing but so #worthit lol. Happy Monday!
