Photo Diary: Big Apple & Beyond

So after a pretty lame week last week, I just got home (like, an hour ago) from five days of traveling through six states.  My dad’s best friend since high school, Dan, has a daughter, Razie, who is basically my big sister.  Razie and her awesome fiancé got married this weekend!!!  They live in Israel, but Razie grew up in Brooklyn, so they decided to get married in New York instead of Israel so that we could all celebrate with them, which is so nice, even though she is probably one of the only people for whom my family would fly to Israel, so we did miss out in that respect!  The wedding was going to be in Port Jervis, which is about 5.5 hours away from Boston, right on the NY/Pennsylvania border.  But instead of driving like crazy on the day of the wedding, my parents and I decided to make a weekend out of this and go to NYC for the weekend first.  It was out of the way, but such a nice weekend and road trips with my family are one of my favorite things in the world.  And oh my god, this was one of the most stunning, happy weddings I have ever seen; so much love in one place, and such spirit and joy.  I danced all night on my bad foot, but I just couldn’t help myself!  I went back to NYC by myself after the wedding to see friends, so I only just got back.  I am totally exhausted, but it was worth it!
