We are back from NYC, and if the sore muscles from walking 15-20 miles a day wasn't enough reality for me, the three and half hours of email clean-up certainly snapped me back. I'm really glad to be home, and missed my sweet baby a ton, but it was a FANTASTIC trip, and I'm incredibly glad that we did it. It was a first NYC trip for my Aunt Hope and I, and a second run for Lillie (but her first experience was a high school band trip, so that doesn't totally count.) For weeks I poured over Trip Advisor reviews, and Fodor's 2012 NYC guide and created an itinerary that I thought was a rough outline of what we might get to see.
