Anticipation: NYC Day 1

Fittingly enough, I forgot to mention many life updates in my recent life updates post--namely, I've been feeling a bit better since the weather has been brighter (now if only I could get over this nasty cold), and that I spent the beginning of spring break in NYC. 

Since I'd never been before, my expectations rested on internet photos, catchy pop tunes, the movie Enchanted, and vague recollections from books I had read in elementary school (Baby-Sitters Club, anyone?). I envisioned expansive boulevards, impressive department stores, a perfectly picturesque Central Park, heavenly food. I anticipated awe and enlightenment. I really should've known better--a city's a city, after all. NYC was just larger, a little more crowded, a little more eclectic.

We spent most of the first day settling in (aka struggling to make sense of directions and figure the subway system out from Grand Central) and the rest of it walking, window shopping, and eating. And of course, in honor of Pi Day on 3/14/15, we scoured Times Square for an open pie shop before finally settling on a French café and each downing a slice of a tart at 9:26 pm and 53 seconds. I'm not ashamed to admit that that was one of the more satisfying moments of the day haha.

Happy first day of spring! Hoping to be back soon with more travel photos.

  1. You went to NYC!? Haha, yeah, missed that update :P

    Wow, that's awesome Lily! I had to chuckle over the comparison to Enchanted, because that's exactly what I would base my expectations off of too...

    I still want to visit one day. All the museums to explore there...sigh.
