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.
Hello again, friends. I know that this post is making its appearance a bit late, but it is still the start of the New Year nonetheless! 2014 was a year of many changes for me. Looking back I realize that I have learned so much in the past year and have really grown as a person. Though there were many good times in 2014, the year ended on a bit of a sour note. Right after Christmas I had my first (and hopefully my last) major car accident. In more ways than one I walked away extremely lucky in such a horrific situation. Such an event really put things in perspective for me and forced me to make a lot of changes in the up and coming year. Though the experience wasn’t pleasant, I think it really forced me to make certain changes that I’ve been hesitant to make. We all need a little push once in awhile, right?
This year on Thanksgiving I felt as if I had a lot more to be thankful for than usual. A lot of milestones and life changing events have happened in the last year. Between graduating college, getting an amazing job, and moving out to Colorado with my other half, this year has tested me and brought me so much joy in ways that I never thought possible. The biggest life change that has happened this year was me moving away from everything I have known. Though I have been extremely busy and barely have time to stop and think about how much I miss home, I am always thinking about how much more aware I am that I am one lucky girl to have such amazing family and friends. When you are constantly around the ones you love, you sometimes lose sight of how thankful you are to have them around. You just kind of assume that they will always be there. No matter what.
