My Own Affair to Remember (No, Not Like That...)

Hope everyone enjoyed a long, lazy Thanksgiving holiday weekend filled with yummy food & lots of gratitude. And maybe a few discounts that were too good to pass up, too.

Ours started on a bit of a romantic note (!), as this year marks another 5 years since Husband proposed on Thanksgiving Eve on top of the Empire State Building. Call it cheesy, I don't care. As many already know, I grew up wanting to move to New York City, & a lot of that has to do with the glitz & glam I embraced while watching movies like Singing in The Rain, Easter Parade & Affair to Remember as a little girl. And don't even get me started on long-time favorite, Sleepless in Seattle.

Why yes, I will marry you!

The Empire State Building was one of the first places I visited after moving here a few months post-college, & it remains one of my favorite symbols for the crazy // exhilarating // frustrating // dynamic place we call home. Knowing this about me, Husband picked the perfect place to pop the question.

5 years & 1 baby later...
Somewhere along the way, we thought it might be fun to mark the occasion, so decided we should head back every 5 years for a visit. In short, a lot cheaper than renewing our wedding vows with a stunning view to boot.

10 years & 2 lovable & rambunctious children later...
It was unseasonably mild on Wednesday, & the lines to go up were practically nonexistent. We marked another 5 years with ease & a quick kiss while we blew the runny noses of our children & yelled at them to stop running into people. Needless to say, a lot has changed in 10 years...

Luckily, I wouldn't change a thing.
