Christmas in NYC

Figured I'd share some Christmas pictures of the city I took when we went to see the tree. I love living close enough to go into the city often. We also tried out a new Restaurant in the city the night of this visit called Bar Bacon. I had the lobster bacon mac and cheese which was amazing along with a beer from Brooklyn Brewery. There's just something magical about all the lights and decorations at Christmas.

Apple and Pumpkin Picking

Part of the reason I love living on Long Island is all the wonderful  local farms. This time of year is all about apples and pumpkins. So on my day off I went to a local farm, picked some apples and got some small pumpkins to use for decorations in my house. Wanted to share some pictures from my trip.
