The Concrete Jungle

Good morning, and happy Monday! I'm happy to report that I survived my second trip to NYC. It was a super fun weekend, but that city wears me out! We did and saw a lot, as one does when they are in NYC.  One of my favorite activities of the weekend was touring the 9/11 memorial. We did a guided tour, and all of the tour guides have a direct connection to 9/11. Our guide's husband was on the hijacked flight that hit the second tower. She shared her story with us, and needless to say, it was an incredibly moving experience.  This is probably one of the more depressing things to do while in Manhattan, but if you ever get the chance to do it, I highly recommend it. It's something that every American should see at least once. Here are some pictures from the memorial and the rest of the weekend.

Something about NYC that makes a mix of sad and happy, but all in all it's a gorgeous city! Used to go there a ton when I lived in DC. Mostly love the ton of cuisines you can find there!
