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.
