A Date in the City

Today, my husband and I went on a date. We haven't been alone together (and awake!) for more than two hours in years. So this afternoon, when all our children managed to be off doing things, we went into New York City for some wanderings and an early dinner. It was great to hang out, just the two of us. Even battling the ridiculous crush of people didn't dampen our spirits. I took a few not- so- traditional pictures of the midtown at the holidays... but, I'll throw in one of the Rockefeller Christmas tree for good measure (which wasn't easy to get through the throng of people all packed together, let me tell you) . I hope you had a good day, too!

The tree in all its glory (a bit fuzzy because of all the jostling for position that was going on):


The snowball-like lights along the promenade at Rockefeller Center:


The very cool wall art / sculpture inside 45 Rockefeller Plaza:


A view of St. Pat's through the arms of Atlas:

Sounds like a wonderful date! You should try to make a habit of this, and squeeze in time like this for just the two of you! Even if it's only once every few weeks. Don't let years go by.

Love the pics...great eye candy!

There's nothing like Christmas in New York. I don't know if I'll get in this year, so thank you for sharing your day

Once again, lovely photos! I can't believe it has been 5 years since I was able to go into NYC for Christmas. DH and I have been able to go out to dinner a couple of times lately, only having one child makes it a little easier! Thanks!

New York is an amazing city ... we visited years ago. A week flew by as we visited the museums and galleries.
