Memorial Day Long Weekend

Hi everyone, hope you’re all doing well!

I had an absolutely lovely Memorial Day Long Weekend last month! We decided to try something different this year and visit New York City! I have some friends that I went to school with that live in Manhattan – they happen to have a spare bedroom, and they were good enough to offer it up!

New York is such a great place for taking in the arts. We went to the museum, several art galleries, and generally walked around town, with coffees in hand, enjoying the New York City vibe!

Something about New York has always captured my imagination. Perhaps it’s the way it’s always being referenced in pop culture. I am a huge Seinfeld nerd and we had a ton of fun visiting some of the spots popularized through the show – include the Soup Nazi’s stand!

We also spend some time visiting the site of 9-11 and paying our respects. The enormity of 9-11 really hits home when you visit the site in person.

All in all, we enjoyed about 3 days in New York. It was hardly enough and I can’t wait to go back! I am thinking it might be nice to go back during the fall, when it is a bit cooler. I hear that New York can get pretty muggy during the summer months, and this girl’s hair gets crazy in environments like that!

Here are some cool photos of New York… what a rad city!

How about you? How did you spend your Memorial Day Long Weekend?

Gros bisous (lots of kisses),

Françoise
