New York Birthday

Surprise gallo pinto birthday dinner

Birthday celebrations continued through the weekend with a home cooked meal and birthday cake, courtesy of my amazing boyfriend, followed by a trip to New York City to celebrate with friends. My meals at Blossom, a vegan restaurant, and Tamarind Tribeca, an Indian restaurant, were both delicious and thoroughly enjoyable. However, the 'Shroom Burger at Shake Shack, which I have always heard so much about, left something to be desired; maybe it was my mood, maybe it had been over-hyped, but I was completely underwhelmed. Finally, in true tourist fashion, my boyfriend and I boarded the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, something I hadn't done since childhood, and enjoyed beautiful weather, breathtaking views, and a lovely afternoon. I can only hope that my birthday celebrations are this wonderful next year!
