This trip was a truly magical and memorable once in a life time trip! I don't want to talk too much about it because I am a firm believer that a picture (and a video!) are worth a thousand words. Courtney and I were in awe of the decadent Christmas decorations in NYC and would recommend to anyone to visit the city during this time of year. Please enjoy a peek into our girls trip and savor the magic the city has to offer this time of year! Again, Happy 23rd Birthday, Courtney! So glad we got to celebrate in the Big Apple together!
