meet me in new york

There are pretty much no perks to being in a long distance relationship. Aside from having complete ownership over the remote control, but that get's lonely after a while. But I can think of one good thing. Instead of me always visiting Tom or him visiting me, sometimes we meet in a special place. This way, we're not visiting each others day to day lives and being reminded of the distance. Instead we're just two people meeting up in a neutral place. 
So that's exactly what we did over the long weekend. I flew into JFK and Tom flew into LGA, then we met up. It's not easy coordinating flights from different places, but it was so very worth it. We spent the weekend sleeping in and walking the snow-covered streets of New York. Also, managed to catch Chicago on Broadway and pop into The Met. New York showed us quite the time! Here's a few snapshots of our weekend together. 
We're not strangers to meeting up like this. Even when we dated in college and were living in separate states, we would rendezvous with a day trip just to see each other's faces (P.S. this was a world before the existence of FaceTime). So with not having seen each other in far too long, meeting up in New York for the long weekend was the perfect idea. 

Linking up with Weekending// 


  1. I love this idea! It also gives you so many unique memories to look back on once you are back together for good. I'll definitely be keeping this in mind with John and I. God willing we can be in the same city together for my residency and his rotations, but if not we'll definitely make the most of our time together since it's just temporary.

    1. It's been our best idea yet! Especially because sometimes I dread visiting Tom in Boston since I used to live there with him, so it feels like I'm "at home" with my husband and is always way too hard to leave.

  2. That is such an amazing idea! I love that you met up somewhere different and created a vacation out of it!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Oh fun! Y'all are too cute.
    Glad you enjoyed your time together.
