december in new york city [part I].

new york city is magical. but decorated for the holidays .. it is absolutely breathtaking.

thanks to spontaneity & inviting myself on [J]’s business trip, I got to see the city in all of its christmas glory.

as soon as we landed .. [J] went to a meeting. & I went gallivanting, with my camera. [only fair, right?]

the week in photos.

[J] & I abruptly woke this morning at 4:30AM. boarded our plane. slept soundly the entire flight. and arrived safely in chicago ..all before 9AM.

by the time we got home, I couldn’t keep my eyes open a second longer.

we slept for six hours.

we went out for a bite to eat. & now I am happily in my comfy clothes, in bed, painting my nails, watching law & order. it’s a crazy friday night for me!

but now that I’ve slept + ate ..I can now form enough of a sentence to write ‘the week in photos‘ ..

[I intentionally left out any new york pictures, those will come next week!!]

  1. can’t hate an afternoon that starts with a chipotle burrito bowl.
  2. fun self-manicure + fingerless gloves. if your nails are pretty & polished, don’t hide them!
  3. [J] & I went to his niece’s 3rd birthday party. and ice skated.
  4. us on the ice. [see more photos of the party on [J]’s blog {two coins}].
  5. the weather has been gorgeous. so, we took full advantage. & headed downtown to the german {christkindlmarket}. holiday pop-up stores galore + scrumptious german food & wine.
  6. [J] drinking glühwein [warm spiced wine] out of a cute, souvenir mug.
  7. the chicago macy’s tree. beautiful.

have an amazing weekend.
