New York City in Bloom
If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know I was in New York City for four days two weeks ago. I got in just in time to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom and to see tiny green leaves attempting to poke through the winter haze. I spent the weekend roaming the chilly streets with my lovely songbird, Paola Bennet, touring the Cloisters, and meeting up with friends from high school.
Having lived in both London and Copenhagen, New York City has a lot of competition. But what New York City lacks in European charm it makes up for in boundless energy. It doesn’t matter how many times you visit the city, it never stops feeling like a new adventure.
Side-note: The lovely Paola is actually working hard to fund her first professionally recorded EP! You should definitely give her music a listen and consider donating whatever you can to her fundraiser. Her music has so much heart and it is so worth the investment.
We spent our first day in Central Park soaking in the crisp and sunny weather and the beautiful cherry blossoms. We managed to snag a prime spot in front of one of the trees and took a whole bunch of portraits and flower photos. Fun fact: When we finally left, a family, who had been standing near us the entire time, stole our spot and posed their children exactly where we had been standing. Hopefully they weren’t disappointed with the photos because we definitely weren’t! New York City in the spring is such a dream! I’m partial to the in-between months because the weather, while a little chilly and sometimes un-cooperative, is finally mild enough to actually spend time outside. Don’t get me wrong, the winter months are the most hyggeligt and the summer months are full of sunshine, but there’s something about the days when sleepy cities are just beginning to return to their bustling nature with people and outdoor cafes that holds a special place in my heart. But let’s be real: the best part about spring is being able to see all the dogs.
There are still quite a few photos that I cannot wait to share with all of you, so be on the lookout for two more posts featuring the dreamy, historical Cloisters.
