This week I did something completely out of character.
I found out my friend Erin was going to New York City for the weekend to visit our friends who live there and just to vacation and hang out and she told me I should come with her and... I did!
So I am currently writing this post from atop an air mattress in the middle of a city I know almost nothing about and have spent almost no time in before this trip.
And it's the best.
I've spent time with so many of my friends and seen some theatre and had a hundred iced coffees from different cute places and hung out in Grand Central Station and stood on a pier looking out on the Statue of Liberty and I'm pretty sure I needed this reminder that, despite being a type-A planner at heart, sometimes I really am meant for adventures.
Sometimes I'm presented with an opportunity and I should just say "yes" and go along with no plan and very little control and just... see what happens.
That also means the One Year of Marriage video is going to go up a little later on here than anticipated, but, you know, real life is kinda important too, once in awhile ;)
I'll be in the city through the weekend and I'm sure I'll post some pictures here eventually, but check out my instagram for a more real-time update :) Can't wait to chat soon!
Hi, I'm Grady! Welcome to my blog :) A little about me? I'm a smitten newlywed and brand-new stepmom living in New Hampshire. My day job is boring on paper but great in real life (just like Dunder Mifflin!), and when I'm not working I love to spend time with my family, perform in or manage productions at the theatre, and eat ice cream while listening to yet another financial management podcast. I write about my marriage, step-parenthood, and whatever else is going on. Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, and subscribe to my blog!
