New York City: Day 4

Whenever I go on trips, I tend to have a motto for the experience. Like a saying that I’m going to live by, including but not limited to, carpe diem, don’t think-just do, money ain’t a thing. This trip’s motto was,

Enjoy the journey.

A little more mature and responsible than the other mottos.

I thought it was perfect because I didn’t want to get caught up in making it to all the sites. I wanted to remember the reason I was in NY and enjoy the short time I was there with T.J. So, if something didn’t exactly go as planned, I reminded myself to enjoy the journey and be happy in the moment.

That being said, Thursday was the day T.J. had off work so I didn’t really want to plan too much, I just wanted to spend the day with him and enjoy all the little details like being able to hold his hand or being able to go to the store together.

We did some shopping since T.J.’s birthday was coming up. The H&M on Times Square was crazy, as you can imagine, but we forced our way inside and got a lot of cute new clothes (even some cute clothes for Diva Eva!).

For lunch, we ate at Junior’s which is known for their cheesecake. This little orphan baby without her shirt on looked like she needed a home, so we gave her some baby food and took her with us.

Then we continued to see some more sites like Radio City, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center, and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

We almost didn’t go inside the Cathedral because we had Eva in her stroller. But I am so glad we did. I loved seeing people worship inside as the crazy city moved outside. The whole city moves at such a fast (and mad) pace, so going inside helped me remember that there is always a calm in the storm, you just have to search for it.

The building itself was also very beautiful. It took twenty years to make and the details in all the carvings was beyond impressive. I didn’t take pictures of it on my camera, only on my iPhone… so you’ll have to wait for those.

We ended the day by going to the top of the Empire State Building. It was amazing to see the whole city from up there. When you’re down in the streets, it’s hard to get a feeling of how big the whole island is. Eva fell asleep in my little pack and then we enjoyed dinner as a family at the restaurant on the main floor. What a great end to a trip!
