Happy 2012, ladies! I hope you've all had a terrific holidays with too much of almost everything.
Mine was fantastic, if not exhausting. I know that I'm blessed to have been able to visit my fam in NYC, then have BF fly up to join me for a few days while we stayed at the Tribeca Grand, before flitting down to visit BF's mom and big sis in Knoxville, then a drive to see his dad. We had not attempted to visit all our family for the holidays before so it was am exhilirating mix of excitement, exhaustion, and tons of dirty laundry into two crammed carry-ons.
BF has only been to NYC briefly before and I have not lived there in years, so it was nice to play tour guide / tourist and fall back in crush with my hometown. Despite the c-c-chilly weather, we did a ton of walking and stopped by most of the major Manhattan sites - ate, ate, ate - and let ourselves go with the flow despite the holiday crowds. We hope to be able to go back when it gets warmer and spend more time revisiting some neighborhoods that we only had time to glance at.
Below is a medley of pics from last week - it was fuh-reezing in NYC when I was there, so I bundled as best as I could:
And in less than 24 hours, I went from "bright lights, big city" to visiting BF's dad, chopping trees, feeding cows and driving a track loader (for realz):
Back to our regularly-scheduled blogging this week and I'll be catching up on your blogs shortly!
