york and i have a tradition, instead of gifts, every year around the time of our wedding anniversary, we take a trip somewhere. amazingly, we've been able to keep this up for four out of the five years we've been married, the only year we couldn't travel was when nick was a bit too young. we both love to travel, sight see, and eat, so a small vacation/weekend getaway is the perfect anniversary gift.
this year, to celebrate our five years of marriage, we went to new york. we stayed in brooklyn, and it was a good choice. our park slope airbnb was perfect for our little family, stroller-friendly, and surrounded by good restaurants. october has to be my favorite time of year to visit new york. the weather was somewhere between gorgeous and slightly cooler, which i find to be perfect for walking, and we did quite a bit of that.
the best part? our friends made it a point to meet us for a quick coffee, brunch, and even sneak out of work to stand in line for ramen with us. our cousin mary and her husband drove up all the way from boston with their kids to join us for a couple of days. we had a blast seeing family and catching up with old friends!
