It appears that blogging is a lot like running/exercising, once you get out of the routine of doing it, it’s easy to continue to not do it. I actually have quite a bit to share, but now I’m feeling a little overwhelmed about getting to it all. In addition, there’s been a lot going on in life. Some good, some stressful, some neutral, but just a lot.
I had begun a post about food, but we just had a very amazing weekend in NYC and I decided that should come first. The hubster and I recently celebrated a milestone anniversary. My parents, who are incredibly wonderful people, got us tickets to see Come From Away on Broadway. It’s been years since we were in NYC, and we’re not city people, so it was a big deal.
We were grateful to have a good friend not only put us up for the night, but spend her entire day with us on Saturday. After I told her what we were hoping to do, besides the show, she planned out all of the logistics. It was such a bonus to be able to spend the day with her (and her brother and their friend) and to not worry about getting around.THANK YOU JENNIFER!!!
First stop was the Brooklyn Bridge. Hubby had read The Great Bridge by David McCullough and was excited to see the subject of the book. It didn’t sound as exciting a destination to me, but it really was fascinating. I loved all of the different shapes and structures and signs and views.
From the bridge, we walked to the 9/11 Memorial. We didn’t have time for the museum this visit, but we took a few minutes to pay our respects.
It was so very moving, and it felt important to visit before the show, as the show is also about that day. We really don’t have strong enough words to describe how amazing this show is. The music and choreography and writing and songs were so incredible that we’re still walking around singing, “I’m an islander, I am an islander, I’m an islander, I am an islander….”
GO. SEE. THIS. SHOW!!!!!!!!!
