Away From Home {in NYC}

So sorry for being away from our lil ol' blog for so long.  We promise we didn't give up on this blogging adventure already!

We have been away from home, sharing laughs, great food and holiday cheer with friends.

We have also been traveling and relaxing, a. lot.

We traveled to The Big Apple for our one year anniversary - back to where it all went down a year ago.  (I promise to share our wedding story soon - the short version: we got married in New York City on December 22, 2009). 

We played here all day (the American Museum of Natural History)

We saw the most beautiful Christmas trees (Natural History Origami tree, Rockefeller Center, and The New York Public Library). 

We took a trip to see a very special Lady

And, explored here until the sun went down (Ellis Island)

We ventured back to this beautiful park

That looked much different a year ago

Then, we came in from the cold to see a show here

And, last but not least, we tried, but failed at getting a good picture here

Good thing we have these to look back on

We made it back home to celebrate Christmas, also known as, movie marathon-in our pj's all day, relaxing on the couch Day.  Definitely a tradition we will look forward to keeping for years to come.  

Side-note: Do you have Nexflix? If you don't, you need to get it.  We get Netflix instantly through our Roku (as well as one disc through the mail).  It's at the top of our list of most used/favorite/most affordable purchases. (At $9/month, you can't beat it!)  We have always loved watching movies together, even when we were dating, and we enjoy being able to pick out pretty much any movie (or TV show - Have you seen Dexter? If not, you should) we want instantly from our couch. 

We hope you had a great Christmas with the ones you love and are looking forward to the start of 2011! It's going to be a good year - I can feel it.  We have weddings the first three months of the year already - and what does that mean? Dancing! We love dancing (we need to share a little history lesson on how we met with you all).  Then you will fully understand how much WE LOVE DANCING!

Here's a little preview:

Cheers to love and dancing in 2011!
