I had such a fun, exciting weekend, and it was refreshing to switch things up and treat myself to a mini vacation. I flew to New York City on Friday morning to meet my mom and friend, Erica. We had absolutely no set plans besides relaxing and trying out new dinner spots. We ate at Buddakan on Friday night and Crown on Saturday night— both ended up being absolutely delicious. We also explored a new (for us) part of the city (Upper East Side) all weekend and ended up loving the quiet and serene atmosphere it had. I am now back to reality, unfortunately, and completely missing the beautiful Fall weather. Here are some snapshots from my trip. How was your weekend?
