A few completely random pictures from my time in New York City and Long Island. I had so much fun despite being sick — I mean, when you have cupcakes, bagels, family, a kitty, a roaring fire, and your favorite bar, how can you not be happy?
A trip to NYC would not be complete without these cupcakes.
So much beautiful snow started falling the second I got off the plane. I was in heaven.
I got to have a beer at my favorite bar.
And go to a hockey game. Hockey is so much fun to watch!
The islanders won!
Yes, those are homemade nutella stuffed, brown butter sea salt chocolate chip cookies.
I had tea with my wonderful neighbors.
And cuddled with my cat.
I got to have dinner with a dear friend. Nothing beats friendship and pasta.
And there’s nothing like my dad’s homemade baked clams.
One more of my crazy kitty!
