Last weekend, Nicolas turned 25! He had never experienced a proper birthday weekend before, and no one deserves a wonderful birthday more than him, so we celebrated Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday! Along with celebrating at work, my family had the coziest party for him. On Saturday, we left for a little weekend getaway to State College.
I celebrate Christmas the entire week between Christmas and New Year’s, and that is why I’m sharing a holiday-themed post today! These photos are from our trip to Disney World in November. I had never been there during the Christmas season, so I was super excited to see all the decorations. Main Street looked incredibly festive!
It has always always ALWAYS been a dream of mine to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and it just so happened that Nicolas and I were spending a night in New York City on our way to Pennsylvania for the holidays. Despite our jet lag and the below-freezing temps, Nicolas was determined to make sure that I saw the tree. We woke up early in the morning and had an amazing breakfast at the Tick Tock Diner (highly recommend). We bundled up and took in all the beautiful sights there are to see in New York during the holiday season. When we finally reached Rockefeller Center, I nearly cried! The tree was so beautiful – just like the movies (i.e. ELF 🙂 ). We passed the Empire State Building on our way to Penn Station. My fingers were literally frozen, so I kept the photo-taking to a minimum. 🙂
Hello, all! I have just returned from a visit to the states to see my wonderful family. Every year in the fall we travel to Ocean City, Maryland – a place that is so close to my heart. I have been visiting this particular beach since I was little. It is so special to me. Ocean City is such a popular tourist location during the summer months, but I think it is even more charming in the fall. The water is still warm, the air has a slight chill, and the beaches are much more quiet. I was thrilled to be able to spend time with my family, relax, and eat a lot of good food. 🙂
