Birthday Weekend

There are few things better in this world than New York City in the summer. One thing that is better? Celebrating your birthday during a NYC summer.

My birthday was on Friday, and I took the afternoon to enjoy the beautiful day.

This year, Luke treated me to a birthday dinner at Blue Hill in the heart of Greenwich Village. Simply magnificent.

After the extraordinary meal, we walked to Washington Square Park. It was a warm summer night, and we weren't quite ready to call it a night. Tons of people were enjoying the evening. Laughter, music and happiness were in the air.

The next day, we ventured over to Williamsburg to have a few beers and take a tour of the Brooklyn Brewery.
What a way to kick off the next year!
