Yesterday I turned twenty-six. I had the opportunity of spending both New Year’s and my birthday in New York City. This was my second time visiting this amazing city. Initially before departing from LAX, I thought I would most likely be spending the countdown for 2016 in Times Square. After talking to a couple of locals in NYC, there was a change of mind. Seeing the…

I thought it was the perfect place to get ready at and relax for a night at the ballet.
