I had been beggingbeggingbegging Kern to go to New York with me for months and we finally agreed to go to celebrate my 25th birthday. We left DC at 4am, drove to Princeton, New Jersey, caught the 7:45am train into Penn Station and arrived in the heart of the Big Apple at 8:52am. It was a wonderful day!
We started the day with breakfast at Sarabeth's. I had pumpkin waffles with sour cream, honey, raisins and pumpkins seeds--fantastic!
We went to Sarabeth's East, which is only a block from Central Park, we walked almost the entire length of the Park...and of course rode the carousel!
Quarter life crisis?
We took the 7pm train back to Princeton and then drove 3 1/2 more hours home. At that point, I had been up almost 24 hours (since I woke up at 3am to shower) but it was so worth it. Experiencing New York at Christmas was magical--even though we had to wait in line to even get into FAO Schwartz! It was a perfect day--just walking, seeing and observing the city.
I can't wait to go back again!
