A few weeks ago I kicked off the holiday by meeting up with two of my best dental school friends for a day in the city. I have been missing my Cali friends a lot lately so it was really nice to see some familiar faces in an unfamiliar place. The city was so crowded but we managed to take in some sights like the tree in Rockefeller Plaza and the rink in Bryant Park. We also ate dinner at a lovely little wine bar called Sophia on East 50th. Definitely off the beaten path, but after an afternoon of battling crowds of selfie-takers and tourists we enjoyed the quiet and definitely the wine.
Note the parkas. K and I were freezing. Two East Coasters on the West Coast for 4 years made for some really cold girls.
