in New York!
Ryan gallantly trying to hail a taxi so we could make our Gotham Bar and Grill reservations, which he did not and which we did not. [although we were able to slip in the next day to enjoy some risotto and sweet pea ravioli and blood orange sorbet...mmm]
Could this woman have coordinated with her taxi any better?
I felt like we came back with more of a potential to be better parents. Hope was infused in me as this Parenting Thing feels more like the flailing of limbs and great amounts of splashing in a pool of water instead of a beautiful breaststroke of grace, ease, and barely the sound of water. I'm aiming for somewhere in between.
This trip around we make it out to Brooklyn and stopped at El Almacen, an Argentinian restaurant where we had fish tacos and avocado fries! Highly recommend.
We teased each other, like we had no kids, slept in, stayed up late, took our time at restaurants, rushed everywhere else, and only had to find restrooms for ourselves.
I really do love New York.
But it wouldn't be nearly as pleasurable without my love with me or knowing who I had waiting for me at home.
ps You didn't think these were the only photos did you? I have a few more. Maybe tomorrow? I'm also making progress on my Never Enough Orange [NEO] Sewing Studio that needs to be shared with you, because there's an awful exciting giveaway that is nestled in with it!
