NYC in April

As cliche as it may be, I think New York is definitely my favorite city to visit in the US. There’s just so much to do and see

every day

all the time

ALL YEAR LONG.

Most of my friends always love how beautiful and diverse NYC is. Each of the neighborhoods feature a different culture: people, food, fashion, and markets. I’m from Houston and was super #blessed to be raised in a multicultural community… But New York is on another level.

This was my third trip to NYC in the past 2 years but it’s been my favorite one so far!

I went for no other reason than the fact that I missed my best friend, Mary Ivor Weaver. Even though I have seen her more in the past few months than I have in the past 5 years… but the heart wants what it wants: I missed her, I had the plane tickets, and so to NYC I flew!

What made this trip so fun was the fact that we (I) had no agenda. I’ve done all the MAIN touristy things so I just wanted to hang out and eat. I also get really easily excited doing basically anything and since all of it is new to me, I had A BLAST! We also got to do a lot of things on Mary’s NYC bucket list! So it was a win/win situation all around!

I arrived after work on Thursday and spent my first evening hanging out around her apartment eating the greatest Salmon burgers I’ve ever had in my life courtesy of her older sister Stephanie! Unfortunately I have no pics because I devoured them ASAP.

The next three days went by tooo quickly with trips to the best food and shops. I ALSO HAD MY FIRST BROADWAY EXPERIENCE. AND OH MAN LES MISERABLES ON THE STAGE>>>>> I also convinced one of my besties to tag along on the trip and shockingly she said YES!!
