I'm convinced there's nothing more magical than Christmastime in New York City and our adventures last Monday night confirmed it yet again. Every plaza and is decorated and people seem to be more cheery and spirited. We have a little tradition of biking to midtown for dinner at Burger Joint, followed by a visit to the Rockefeller tree, and a walk down Fifth Avenue to see all of the elaborate windows, particularly the Bergdorf Goodman ones. This year we also splurged on a glass of champagne at The Plaza Hotel's champagne bar and both agreed it'll be another night in the city we won't forget.

I think I probably say it every year but this never fails to be one of my favorite nights. Something about getting a tree up six flights of stairs, uncovering all of our favorite ornaments again, and drinking gin and tonics while we listen to Christmas music is just the best. Traditions are so important to me and this is one I cherish every year. It feels like our little tree completes our apartment; not to mention smelling like the best parts of the season. I have all of the feelings over here! Soaking in each and every good thing about this time of year.
