New year, new adventures.

New year, new adventures.

 As I write this I'm sitting in seat 2 of a Megabus bound for New York City where I will join forces with my best friend from college for the ultimate #citygirlweekend. One of my favorite parts about visiting New York is that I always seem to find a new adventure. Bottomless mimosa brunches in Williamsburg, bagels in every color of the rainbow, and dumpling houses named after me. (Okay, not really but a girl can dream!)


Despite the forecast, K and I have a few new fun things planned that I can't wait to tell you about but in the meantime, I've created a few "bucket list" ideas for anyone who has never visited The Big Apple...
