New York, New York!

Celebrating 17 years of marriage with this self-portrait -- Wade surprised me with a weekend in New York for our anniversary! Here -- in Times Square -- we stopped to snap a quick picture in the hustle and bustle of this wild city!

Of course, celebrating our anniversary was only one part of the trip -- my birthday was the other part! Can you believe this sign we saw right off Broadway! Don't those two 40-year-olds look just alike?!
Three Broadway shows in two days was a definite highlight of the trip -- I loved them all! And we'll be singing show tunes all summer. But you know me, my patriotic self, was teary-eyed as we rode the ferry to see the Statue of Liberty up close! Wow!

But the speed of life in New York was what captivated me the most. I'm certain I couldn't keep up long term...it was all I could do to maintain the pace for the weekend...but it was intriguing to see, to experience and to photograph (almost 300 photos in all!)! So today, I'm counting my blessings for 40 years of life, 17 years of marriage, and a wonderful experience in New York with my precious hubbie!

I am so glad you commented - I didn't know you blogged! I will look forward to keeping up with you all!

And I am super jealous of your New York trip...it's one of my favorite places on earth and Mark took me there a few years ago for our 1000 day anniversary. Three musicals would be right up my alley! What did you see?

Hope you are all well!!
