It’s Christmas time in the city.

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the Conettas (and our resident McCann) hopped on the train and took a ride into New York.

We try to get in to see the tree and windows each year, and since Tommy and I won’t be in CT for Christmas, we went early.

We started in Grand Central and walked up to the library and Bryant park.

I love these lions. They look so majestic with their wreaths in place.

The skating rink is all set up in the park, and there’s a little Christmas market around it.

It was so warm that we didn’t even need coats – a strange sensation when you’re walking around looking at Christmas decorations!

But, I can’t complain, it was a gorgeous day to be out and about.

(Side note: one of these days I’m going to get tickets to Jimmy Fallon! Every time we go down to my parents’ Tommy tries to get tickets and we have yet to be successful.)

We made it to the tree before it got too too crowded and then walked across the street to see the Saks windows.

This year’s windows were more elegant than whimsical – frosty and white with pops of blue.

After the windows, we walked through Anthropologie. They have such gorgeous displays all year long, but their holiday set up is always magical.

We had one last stop before lunch, St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The last few times I’ve been in the city the outside of the cathedral has been covered in scaffolding. This is the first time I’ve been since they completed restoring the outside. I couldn’t get over how bright and white it looked!

We walked up quite an appetite so we ducked into one of my mom’s mid-town favorites, Saju, for lunch. It was a great morning spent with my family in one of my favorite places.
