New York City,
Maybe it’s because I grew up watching Home Alone 2, but visiting New York City over the holidays feels so right. There are the traditional sights to be seen—the happy couples skating at Rockefeller Center, the extravagant window displays at Saks Fifth Avenue, the snow-topped trees in Bryant Park—but the entire city is magical. I visited my S.O. there last year during a glorious snowfall and have the warmest memories (despite how cold and wet we were!). We went to all the clichéd destinations, and along the way, we stopped to do some shopping (hello, Sézane!) and eat decadent meals (Balthazar with its festive trimmings is so dreamy). But my favourite part? Going back to his place to warm up and share a bottle of red, a cozy blanket and lots of laughs.
While I was there, we strolled through the most magical snowfall, where oversize confetti-like snowflakes made everything glisten.
