We were there on the first official day of fall, and I think I must have said, don't you just love new york in the fall? about two dozen times (even if it was still almost 90 degrees). We had breakfast at Jacob's Pickles one morning on the upper west side, so it was the perfect opportunity to check out a few You've Got Mail locations while we were in the area.

There are few things I love more than dessert, but somehow I had never tried a macaron. I think I had it in my mind that they were trendy more than they tasted that great. Since I don't plan on heading to Paris anytime soon I figured New York was as great a place as any to finally give them a try and now I'm a little bit obsessed. Speaking of dessert, we had Nutella filled churros at Boqueria that were also amazing. We discovered there's actually a Boqueria in DC which could potentially be a bad thing...
I've heard Kasi talk about Strand Book Store quite a few times and was so excited to check it out in person. It was a little bit overwhelming in the best way possible and is basically any book lover's dream. My one souvenir from the trip was a tote, a couple of post cards, and a book. I got to smell a few of the Hearth & Hammer candles I mentioned in my last Etsy post.
One day we'll make it to Ellis Island and Top of the Rock, but for now I really love just wandering aimlessly around the city exploring new places and trying new things. Until next time, New York.
