Ashley Brooke and Ryan in New York City

New York, New York

A few weeks ago we booked a little NYC holiday gettaway just for fun and kind of on a whim. We really wanted to take a few days to just get away, connect, and soak in the holiday spirit… and we couldn’t think of a better place to do it. 

We totally unplugged from work and didn’t even bring our big camera or laptops… just our phones, which we barely used and it was wonderful. We made a pact not to work on this trip and just enjoy the ability to take time off together, and that’s just what we did. 

We saw Chris Botti in concert at the Blue Note Jazz Club, ate all the cozy food, had cocktails at The Plaza, slept in, strolled around the West Village, and walked the Brooklyn Bridge. It felt like we were living in our very own Hallmark movie and it was so dreamy! 

I think we may just need to make this a Christmas tradition!

5 Things I'm Loving

Heart Earrings $36

These heart earrings from 31Bits have been a go-to of mine lately. Perfect to dress up a plain white tee on those days when you don’t want to go over the top… but just a little something special.

Slouchy Sweater

I love a good slouchy sweater and this pretty pink one is calling my name! Every year after Christmas we go to my family’s cabin for a week and I’m thinking this is what I’m going to want to wear the entire time. Doesn’t it just scream COZY?!

Taxi Cab Dog Toy

I’m dying over this taxi cab dog toy! I’ve got to track one down for Dolly for Christmas… I know she will L-O-V-E it. Dolly is so much fun to buy for. I’ve never met a dog who loves a toy more than she does. It’s hysterical.

Monogrammed Card Holder

My card holder literally fell apart a few weeks ago. I was at the grocery store and it just ripped in half. Kind of embarrassing, but also a great excuse to pick a new one up! I ordered this one and it came in last week. I looooove. I only wish I would have ordered it sooner. Also, it would make THE perfect gift!
