Thankful for a fun day in NYC with the Grinch

The Grinch was spotted on Sixth Avenue and 48th St.

Today I met some good friends in the city and we enjoyed seeing New York City dressed up for Christmas. Ellen and Liz are two of my best and dearest friends. I am so grateful for their friendship and love when we make the time to get together.

1) Thanks to another beautiful December weather day. I loved walking around NYC with all of its energy and hustle and bustle. We saw the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center, visited St. Patrick's Cathedral and even spotted the Grinch on Sixth Ave. Below is a picture of Liz and me in front of the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center.

2) Thanks to the choir who was singing at St. Patrick's cathedral during our visit today. I have never had the pleasure of hearing the wonderful acoustics of this very famous cathedral. Below is a picture of the manger that is at St. Patrick's. Can you find the dog in the picture?

3) Thanks to the waitstaff at the restaurant we had brunch in to celebrate Ellen's birthday. I love when the three of us get together, we enjoy sharing stories and the wait staff let us linger at our table long after we finished eating.

4) Thanks for the delicious lemon muffins at this great French restaurant on Greenwich Ave. It was the best muffin I have had and worth every calorie.
