My little family recently took a last minute trip to NYC! It's only 9 hours away from us and in 1.5 years we will be moving back to Kansas, and thought we should explore the east coast while we can! The autumn drive was GORGEOUS. And NYC was just as amazing as I expected, I could definitely live on the upper east side ;) My husband is a major country boy though. He loves wide open spaces! Our compromise is the suburbs!
