Usually, when you think of honeymoons you think of a beautiful relaxing beach, bungalows, swimming in the waters of Tahiti lol. That was my dream but our honeymoon was a little unconventional and because of the wedding and our home, money was tight. So we decided to go to our favorite city instead, New York! Ps. we’re super grateful we’ve even gotten to do the things we’ve done. A lot of couples our age don’t get to have the wedding of their dreams, don’t get to go on their honeymoon or don’t have the financial means to own a house. God has blessed us beyond our expectations. So now that that’s been said, let’s get into some NY
Harry Potter & The Cursed Child. Was It Worth All The Hype?
If you were to ask Alex what he was most excited about, he’d
The show was nothing short AMAZING. From the minute you walk into the theater to the production, the actors. The play was filled with action and with so much story-telling. Alex’s thoughts on it: The show really brought the story to life and there are so many visuals, storyline, etc. that leaves you wanting more.
This was my very first time being in Dumbo and I was literally left speechless. Our good friend and photographer, Lauren told us to come here specifically Jane’s Carousel. The views were amazing and I just wish I could explain it better than just saying amazing or beautiful but those are honestly the only words that come to mind. And the picture below, we took on the 5th floor of Empire Stores, a super cute marketplace! It’s right next to the carousel!
As for food, you guys know we LOVE trying new places anywhere we go. You can never go wrong with anywhere you go in New York. These are a few spots we hit up!
Hole in the Wall – Best burger I’ve ever had.
Cava – Amazing. Think Chipotle but Mediterranean
The Meatball Shop – We always come here to get our meatball fix.
Cedar Local – Great for cocktails
The Grey Dog – deliciousness pictured below.
We had been trying to go to Sleepy Hollow for the longest! We were finally able to go this time around. It’s such a cool town. This is where the tale of the Headless Horseman started and where the creator, Washington Irving is buried. This cemetery was HUGE. We’re talking like 82 acres big. It’s open to the public and you can either drive around the cemetery or explore by foot! And we’ve heard they really go all out for Halloween with cemetery tours at night! And it’s an hour-long drive if you’re coming from the city!
