Patrick and I traveled to New York City earlier this month, it was actually my first return trip since moving to San Francisco nearly 2 years ago. My Mother joined me during the week for a few preliminary bridal appointments, I have been scoping out a few styles online and wanted to see things in person while I was in town. We visited the bridal salons at Monique Lhuillier, Bergdorf Goodman, Spina Bride and Lee Petra Grebenau. The rest of the week was filled with old favorites like: eating at Momofuku ramen and Milk Bar, shopping in Soho, seeing the annual fashion exhibit (Heavenly Bodies) at The Metropolitan, afternoon tea at Bergdorfs, vintage shopping at What Goes Around Comes Around, cheese plates and wine at Murray's Cheese Bar, walking around Washington Square Park and brunch at Balthazar. It felt good to be back, almost like we never left! I believe the moral of the story is 2 years is too long to stay away from Manhattan, hopefully we'll make a return trip this spring.
