Girls Weekend in NYC!

Fifteen years ago when my sister and I graduated from college, my mother took us on a surprise trip to NYC. We saw a couple of plays, saw the destruction of 9/11, and generally toured the city. Last weekend we finally made it back to New York for another girls weekend. We had a blast! […]
