Last month I turned 27, and was lucky to be able to celebrate my first New York birthday with some of my closest friends and family.
We got dressed up, I put on my new Louboutins (eek!), and we headed off to dinner at Revel. Revel is a trendy restaurant in the Meatpacking District that has the most beautiful garden area in the back.
Starting on the left we have Cody, Julia, Blair, me, Kendall and Steph!
Julia and Blair are two of my favorite cousins.
And Kendall, Steph and I have been friends since high school.
Everything about our dinner was amazing, including the food, the stories and jokes, and the people. However, I will admit, this was my favorite part:
After dinner, my friend Marilyn met up with us. Marilyn (the one who introduced me to the best lobster roll ever) drove all the way down from Boston. How sweet is that?!
We headed off to find somewhere fun for drinks.
We ended up at STK‘s rooftop, and it was absolutely gorgeous!
I had such a fabulous night!
The next morning, as a day cap (ha), Steph, Marilyn and I headed to brunch.
Then the three of us wandered through Central Park, enjoying the perfect summer day.
I couldn’t have asked for a better first birthday in New York City.
Happy 27 to me!
