One year ago today I moved to this city and I never looked back.
Ever since I was young, I remember dreaming of such a moment, but I never truly believed that it would come true for me. I’m not quite sure when I decided to not let my dreams just be dreams. I have a feeling it was somewhere in between Zach getting a call from The Today Show while we were eating at Buffalo Wild Wings one day and the moment where I stood with tears streaming down my face as I lugged two large suitcases on a one-way plane ride to NYC. When I look back on it, I guess I never really went out and chased my dreams…I was kind of just pushed in to them after life got sick of me staying in my comfort zone for too long.
I love going on adventures. Especially to places I’ve never been.
This weekend I set out on a mission. I had been wanting to visit the Brooklyn Bridge for some time since moving to the city, but I never really made the time to actually do it. Since my anniversary of becoming an official New Yorker is quickly approaching, I decided that I had to finally make the time to go see it. Only then would I feel like I accomplished almost everything I wanted to after living in New York City for a whole year.
Welcome to the Rainbow Room.
It is an iconic New York City landmark where you can experience world class dining and entertaining 65 stories above Rockefeller Center. I wasn’t quite sure what we were getting in to when we made these fancy reservations one Sunday for brunch, but boy am I thankful that we got to experience it. Needless to say, it may or may not be the only time that we will have the honor to dine there because the price tag isn’t for the faint of heart! BUT I must say that it was worth every single penny and I left feeling like I was wined and dined like royalty. They had stations upon stations of the most delicious food, a whole freshly pressed juice and smoothie bar, an entire corner dedicated to just desserts, and there was a menu that you could specially order from. I haven’t even gotten to the best part – it was completely unlimited! And the second best part? That view. Oh, don’t even get me started on how beautiful that view of New York City was.
Another weekend has come and gone in the blink of an eye.
Though I feel that these weekends never seem to be long enough, it excites me to know that the faster they go, the sooner the day will come that I get to marry the love of my life. We keep on telling ourselves that “this weekend is going to be a lazy weekend” but somehow we always find new adventures to fill up our time. This time our adventurous hearts took us to Coney Island.
