Exploring NYC in 36 hours!

Hello Sunshines! On today’s post I’m sharing with you all how we explored NYC in a short 36 hours a couple weekend’s ago! (Actually probably less than that if you include the necessary 8 hours of sleep :)) Prior to our trip, we researched and planned out the places we wanted to visit on this trip to the T, meaning I knew exactly how long it took from Murray Hill to get to the Brooklyn Bridge and which route we should take on the Subway. Disclosure, I am a crazy planning nut! I know many people would prefer to not make plans and go with the flow, but for me, I need my checklist and would go crazy if I left everything up in the air :X. That being said, I know things don’t always go according to plan, and that I can accept…you reshuffle your to-do-list and go from there! Mr. P and I had a 5 PM flight Friday night and landed around 8:30 PM at Laguardia. From there, we ordered an Uber to our friend’s house in Murray Hill, which was app 30 mins with minimal traffic at night (other than driving on the sidewalk because of a truck being stuck in the middle of the road!). That night was spent catching up with friends and drinking lots of vino! The next morning, with a little over 24 hours left in NYC, we started our day bright […]

Corduroy & Over the Knee Boots

Hello sunshines! It has been a while since my last post, 3 weeks to be exact. Life has been crazy hectic lately! Mr. Photographer and I have been on the road every single weekend the past few weeks and this trend is going to continue until the first week of December. Also, I wanted to share some exciting news with all of you – I’m getting my MBA part-time at Northwestern! It’s my first quarter of classes, so balancing work, life, and school has kept me quite busy…which is also contributing to why my blog posts have been so infrequent. Adulting is hard, am I right?! Anyway, this past weekend, Mr. Photographer and I went back to my hometown in Columbus, IN to celebrate my little brother’s 14th birthday. I can’t believe that he’s already a freshman in high school and is growing up so fast! I always enjoy going home to spend time with my family and wish that home was closer…how about 20 mins instead of the 4 hour drive! So my little brother was the one that suggested that I take pictures next to the iconic bridge in Columbus. Many of you may not know that Columbus is actually an architectural gem and named “a Midwestern Mecca of Architecture!” I will have to stop by more hot architectural spots for pictures the next I visit home :). Columbus is further south so I was super lucky to […]
