see details of how you can enter to win at the bottom of this post!
in anticipation for this fun giveaway, josh and i had lunch at the boathouse a little while ago and rowed a boat together in the park. it was a fun afternoon date, just the two of us. one of our favorite things to do in the city, as it’s something we’ve done a few times over the years and still doesn’t get old. i felt fancy in my big sun hat and beautiful dress. i’m not kidding when i say four different people complimented me on it in the park. a funny side note, but on one of our very first dates in new york city some 9 years ago (!!!!), we ended up in central park and climbed up on these large rocks near the lake and talked until it was dark. i had no idea in the slightest on this outing together that we’d be married a year later and have three kids 8 years later, but what do ya know! it’s all working out great. we actually walked back over to those rocks at the end of our afternoon together last week and i reminded josh about something i said there, and something he said back, and we laughed. gosh, keep journals you guys! they are GOLD sometimes when you start to forget things as the years pass. journals don’t lie.
anyway, a few photos!
^^^the loeb boathouse in central park! it’s such a fun spot for a fancy meal because you are in the smack middle of central park, and get to sit right along side the water taking in such a great view of the city.^^^
^^^so we ordered the sliders burgers to split and we were rather impressed! if you go, order them! delicious!^^^
^^^by the way, i felt like a pretty big deal when josh kept telling me how good my form was when i rowed. ;) compliments from a man who has spent many years of his life on a crew team made me feel extra special. also, let’s talk about this pretty exposed zipper because it’s one of my favorite things about this dress.^^^
