a whirlwind trip to meet my husband in one of our favorite cities during our anniversary month ON MY BIRTHDAY was a hard yes. sure it took a village to help us escape for a mere 36 hours, but it was so worth it.
we kicked off the trip with the last dinner reservation at Gramercy Tavern with burgers and a pumpkin dessert. the festive decor was lovely and the view of the kitchen is such a sight.
we woke up on my 38th birthday and immediately went to our favorite breakfast spot Grey Dog. I devoured blueberry pancakes and then we made our way to do a little shopping for Nick for the event we had that night. we even got a little christmas shopping in. two things I really wanted to do that day was to get my hair done at drybar and get lunch at la mercier. we ended up snagging the last lunch reservation inside and I relished in the decor and interior details. we had a lovely glass of wine and ate profiteroles that were absolutely delish!
we made our way to the wythe hotel in brooklyn (where we got married almost 9 years ago!) and checked in to our lovely 701 loft suite. with flowers and a welcome drink – the hotel, staff and manager never disappoints! we love love love coming back to this hotel.
around 6 or so we got dressed up for the Time’s Person of the Year party at the Plaza and off we went. we mingled a little, drank a little and people watched a lot. we had an exceptional date night that lead us to a late dinner reservation at al corro and their 5 course pre-fixe meal. fancy meals with nick takes me back to our beginning – before kids – before we both ran crazy businesses and it was nice to go back to do a day of dating. to a day of self care and a little birthday faire.
thank you to sézane for the outfits and for helping me feel extra special in the city.
