Celebrating Our Second Year

Saturday Ryan & I headed into the city for a day of celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. He planned a wonderful day full of surprises and seeing the best of the city. The city was bustling with traffic, in taxis & on foot, as the holiday season is in full swing. Ice skating rinks up, window displays lit up, Christmas music playing, and Starbucks holiday drinks brewing. Ah I do love NYC during the holidays.

We arrived at Gershwin Theatre just in time to catch the opening act of Wicked. A production neither of us has seen. One they are calling the show of the century. Words cannot describe how amazing it was from start to finish. The cast, the costumes, the music. Everything was beyond perfect.

After the show, we took the Subway over to SoHo to dine at Taureau. A french fondue restaurant that melted my heart. With all glass windows providing a view of the city lights, we were tucked in a corner table for a prime view. We enjoyed a 3 course meal of pure heaven. A cheese fondue with homemade croutons and salad for dipping. The most tender filet mignon dipped in olive oil with fresh steamed veggies. And for dessert, milk & dark chocolate with all sorts of goodies to dip from strawberries and marshmallows to banana bread and biscotti.

A perfect day followed by the perfect evening.

On our actual anniversary, Ryan decided to play hookie and stay home for a family day of celebration. We enjoyed a nice lunch out before heading to The Great Jack-O-Lantern Blaze right in our backyard. It is a large display of hand-carved pumpkins all lit up in glory.
