Last spring, my friend Caroline tossed out the idea of doing a girls weekend in NYC this fall. Her boyfriend Paul was having a concert there that she was planning to attend and the weekend also fell right before the 1-year anniversary of the death of our dear friend Christina. And then, Caroline and Paul got engaged, which was later followed by our friend Elissa’s engagement this summer. So the trip seamlessly also turned into a bachelorette celebration. It was the perfect opportunity to get us all together again for a bit of a reunion in honor of these events. Six of us still live in Birmingham, one is in Colorado, one in Nashville, and one in Indiana. And amazingly enough, all 9 of us were able to make it happen!
Most of the girls got to NYC Friday morning and had a full day of adventures. Caroline and I flew in late Friday night due to work and school obligations. I took my last final Tuesday before the trip (whoop whoop!), so I was very excited to be completely school-free for this trip with all my besties!
Although my Friday consisted of packing all morning and flying all afternoon/evening, here’s what the other girls enjoyed on their first day in NYC together. (Pictures courtesy of the girls)
