This past weekend, I was able to enjoy a long weekend for myself and went to New York City to visit my sister and some friends. I love NYC and miss it a lot, my husband and I lived there for 10 years before moving to San Francisco. When traveling alone, however, I miss my boys more than I miss any city and I am happy for Skype and Texting.
Today I have some photos to share with you from the amazing "Death Becomes Her" exhibit I went to at the Costume Institute in the Metropolitan Museum of Art that showcases a Century of Mourning Attire. The exhibit is organized chronologically and includes mourning dress from 1815 to 1915, including mourning gowns worn by Queen Victoria and Queen Alexandra. It was a perfect day at the MET with my sister, brother-in-law, and some friends - especially since NYC was so chilly (BURR) it was nice to be inside looking at beautiful art.
My boys had a fun, but exhausting, boys weekend together. My husband took Mario to the park, for pizza, and to see Big Hero 6 - all of Mario's favorites - so I have a few photos of Mario to share with you from my husband. The last photo is of Mario looking up in the sky for airplanes for his Mama - Sweetest!
