Kyle and I joined some friends in NYC for almost a week exploring the city and finding good food and drink.  Some highlights of the trip were walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunset, dinner at ABC Kitchen, and the 911 Memorial | Museum.  I was astounded by the amount of people, tall buildings, and the grittiness of the city!  I even asked Kyle, "where do people in NYC go hiking?"  NYC feels so different from life in the PNW.  

We then left NYC and headed to Milwaukee to see my sister-in-law get married.  It was a beautiful ceremony and great to celebrate with Kyle's family! 

It was a long and exhausting but enjoyable trip.  We are settling back into normal life rhythms (i.e our washing machine has been working non-stop) here in Seattle and we plan to lay low for a while as we recover!
