Art Adventures


New York is full of fun things to do and beautiful places to visit. While I do believe we are good about enjoying the city we live in, I do wish that we went to the museums more often. Over the past few weeks Caleb and I have been very intentional about trying to visit a few of the local museums. In January, we visited the Met on the Upper East Side and the Cloisters {which is a branch of the Met} located in Upper Manhattan.

I love these two museums. The Met is the largest museum in the US and the Cloisters is made up of various pieces of different castles in Europe. They literally numbered the stones and rebuilt pieces of castles, brick-by-brick here in Manhattan {which, I think is really cool- don’t you?}. If you come to New York, you don’t want to miss either of these museums! You could literally spend hours in each one.

In 2016, one of my goals is to be more intentional about returning to these museums. The exhibits change frequently and it gives my adventurous heart a little glimpse into other cultures.

{camera use inside these museums is not encouraged, so most of the photos are outside- but can we talk about how incredible the sunset was after our time at the Met? it was seriously swoon worthy}

{yes, I did feel like gossip girl sitting on the Met steps, soaking up the gorgeous golden-hour sunset, & eating my snack}

    I’ve only been to NYC once to visit my sister in law when she was working there. I loved it, but we didn’t make it in to any of the museums! Dang it! They look amazing. And you are just adorable!

    Love those sunset photos! I was in NYC last week, and I logged a wonderful afternoon in the Met. There are so many treasures! I’ll have to check out the Cloisters next time I’m in town.
