We spent our second Thanksgiving in New York! With my family in town, it was a week filled with lots of walking, exploring new neighborhoods, and trying new restaurants. Last year we went to the Macy's Parade--and hung out around the Starbucks at Columbus Circle , sipping hot chocolate because it was so cold. This year the weather was perfect, sunny and in the 60s, but we didn't make it to the parade this time (everyone slept in!!). I love showing friends and family around when they visit, and I love being able to take them to all the places we go to frequently. It kind of feels strange including them in my daily space, but it is so nice to be able to share those memories with them.
I was sad when they left, but the exciting thing is, it's officially okay to start celebrating Christmas!!!!!!!
This morning we slept in, exhausted from all of the company and being tour guides. Kyle made us breakfast, we played Christmas music, hung up Christmas décor and lights, and decorated our tree. It is this time of year that is my absolute favorite; the transition between fall and winter, the colder weather, thick and cozy sweaters, warm drinks galore, and the anticipation of Christmas and all of the excitement it brings.
After a week of eating a lot of baked goods, I will be (hopefully) making it a lighter week and getting back into a workout routine. These veggie wraps are so easy and surprisingly filling. The filling can be swapped with any other veggies you have in your fridge, too. I originally made these as snacks to bring on our flight to TX the other weekend, and they held up great!
