Yesterday morning, Mike and I woke up and walked along the High Line. We stopped to try a creme brûlée doughnut (and a pumpkin one, too!) at Doughnut Plant. Then we found a bagel shop and discovered that we liked lox. With full stomachs, we hopped on the subway to the airport and flew home to our four children. It was a good way to end our week in New York City. I can't wait to tell you all about it.

We hadn't planned on being away for so much of October, but we are grateful for the opportunity. We couldn't have done it without my parents who watched our kids while we were in New Orleans for Mike's conference, and our sister-in-law, Lindsi, who took the kids while we were in New York. Leaving the children behind is always stressful, but the time alone with Mike is such a blessing. I came home feeling refreshed and re-energized in my role as a mother. Here's to hoping that feeling lasts!


  1. A wonderful getaway!! I love NYC and we walked the High Line when we were there, but it was the middle of summer and very hot. I enjoyed it very much, but our teenagers complained because of the heat and walking, lol. Glad you enjoyed your time away. : )

  2. yay! can't wait for the full posts... :)
