Afternoon Tea.

Easily one of my favorite New York activities is getting afternoon tea at Bergdorf Goodman. Last year we decided to make it a Christmas tradition and I've also had a chance to go with a few girlfriends in between. Something about it makes you feel so fancy, and it's an extra perk when your whisper chairs overlook Central Park. Next up, trying to figure out how to afford all the fabulous clothes they sell ;)

Our 2014 Christmas Pictures!

Every year we look forward to Christmas Picture Day with my sister and her little family. Before I met Aaron I would take pictures of them for their Christmas card and once he came along we joined in on the fun, too. Sometimes I feel a bit ridiculous sending a card out with just our faces on it but I know when I look back at this time in our lives I'll be glad to have our first few Christmases documented when it was just the two of us. Thanks to Sam for taking these!

Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree!

Probably one of my favorite traditions during Christmas is going to get our tree. As a kid, we would always, always cut it down ourselves and there were even a few years where we trekked so far out and got HUGE trees that it was very reminiscent of the Griswold Christmas Vacation. We still joke about it to this day! Since Aaron and I have only lived in cities together, we've always gone to a lot or stand somewhere in our neighborhood. While I miss the days of an outdoor adventure, there is something fun and kind of romantic about picking out our tree and walking it home together through the neighborhood. You can see the past two years of getting our tree here and here.  photo IMG_4174_zpsc5fba338.jpg  photo IMG_4180_zps59d9ce13.jpg  photo IMG_4196_zps5dc6bd93.jpg  photo IMG_4201_zps234c7a74.jpg  photo IMG_4214_zpse877789e.jpg  photo IMG_4217_zpsaadb70fb.jpg  photo IMG_4220_zps61f0f983.jpg  photo IMG_4222_zpscc1078c0.jpg  photo IMG_4224_zpsd0cfa270.jpg  photo IMG_4230_zpsea08d137.jpg

Turks and Caicos Islands

There are perks to marrying an older man you know, like having a reason to go to Turks and Caicos for his 30th birthday ;)

Happy Birthday, my love. You're my favorite person in all the land.
(ps. we stayed at the Seven Stars Resort for those wondering, and it was so SO wonderful)

Christmas in NYC!

We've started a little "Christmas in NYC" bucket list over here and last night the activities commenced. We got our tree, decorated, and then headed uptown for some out of this world bagels from Absolute Bagels. We took our time walking back on Central Park West to enjoy all of the beautifully decorated entryways to those way-too-expensive buildings. Favorite part of the night had to be watching Aaron wrangle the tree up five flights of stairs ;) Love him so.  photo photo1-32_zpsa02b2091.jpg  photo photo2-31_zps18b57448.jpg  photo photo3-22_zps6b97fd4d.jpg  photo photo4-15_zps8ec317cc.jpg
