this past weekend, we were shocked to see that we both were free on sunday and had nothing on our schedules. even though we both had to work a load out late on saturday night, we decided last minute to just go for it and wake up super early on sunday to take a trip into the city. we knew it was going to be cold, but we layered up (two pairs of socks, 3 shirts, thick jackets, scarves, ear muffs over hats, etc.) to stay as warm as possible.
we love nyc year round, but there is something special about it at christmas time. we opted to save some money and not see a show. instead, we wanted to spend the entire day walking around and soaking up all of the christmas sites. (like the lions above with christmas wreathes around their necks outside the ny public library.)
one of the main things on ryan's wish list was to see as many of the department store christmas window displays as possible. i put together a list and we started at the macy's on 34th street and worked our way up. i loved how colorful macy's windows were and their nyc theme this year. we were there at a great time because it wasn't too crowded so we were actually able to see the windows up close . . .
lots more nyc pictures tomorrow!
