A New York minute for two

In October my husband and I “stole” a weekend to ourselves in New York without the girls. It was great spending time just the two of us away from the pressure of day-to-day family life. At some point I felt guilty I was having so much fun.

So, what did we do?

We went to lunch at “Sant Ambroeus”¬†where we saw Carolina Herrera and I was completely star struck! Later that day, we went to the New York Philharmonic where we listened to¬†Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11. It was amazing! Truly music that fills your soul and heart with joy. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant where we ate a very late dinner. We just wandered around until we found a place that had a table. It didn’t matter because the company we had was¬†so much fun. I do remember eating a steak at 1AM, not really the best idea.

We ate Sunday brunch at “De Santos” where they serve unlimited champagne cocktails. If that wasn’t enough we went dancing ¬†in the middle of the day at “Bagatelle”.¬†That was an¬†experience¬†.Every 10 minutes or so, the DJ stopped the music and played the Superman theme music. At that¬†point, four waiters carried a fifth waiter dressed as superman holding a bottle of Dom¬†Perignon¬†glowing in the dark. Only in New York…

In between all the partying and eating I was able to go visit my best friend who just had her first baby that weekend. I was so happy I was able to be there with her and for her. It made the whole trip much more special!

It was a short weekend but a magnificent one. The weather was amazing, love was in the air and the whole city at our disposal. Truly a new york minute for two.
