It's Christmas Time in the City

I swear, one of these days, I'm going to actually get into a blogging routine. Until then, I'm just going to have to post here and there. For those of y'all that still read, thanks for being patient!

It's Christmas time in the city - the best part of the year to me. The first time I ever visited NYC was in 5th grade during Christmas, so this season is particularly special to me.

One of my favorite things to do is go down to Columbus Circle to the outdoor Christmas shops.

I warn those of you who don't like crowds, don't go. But, for those of y'all who don't mind, it's a fun place to shop for gifts, eat at amazing food stands and enjoy the holiday spirit. It's also right beside the Time Warner Center, so if you get cold, you can always go warm up inside at the bar and watch the light show - which is what we did just last weekend. If you're not close to The Upper West Side, don't worry - The Christmas Villages (as I like to call them) are all over the city.

Last week, I also put up the tree and decorated the apartment. Nothing better than sitting back and enjoying a Christmas tree. Supposedly, the tree is from NC. It was sold to me by a very heavily-accented Brooklyn man, which made it particularly funny. (I like to think that everything from NC is the best quality).

Despite not really having a "front door" I got a wreath anyway and made a big bow out of cute ribbon that my mom bought me a while back. I love that it's not traditional red and green. It's more my kind of colors. I feel like our neighbors enjoy looking at it as they wait for the elevator. If anything, it makes the hall smell good.

'Tis the season y'all!
