We have just returned home from New York City, and we can say without a doubt that we are in love. You could even say obsessed. Everything about the city excited us! All the people, the lights, the food…it really was such an experience. We are two very lucky girls to be able to experience New York City the way we did. We already want to start planning our next trip back! What truly amazed us about this city were all the details. We went to mass at St. Patrick’ s Cathedral and it was absolutely incredible. The detail in the architecture, the altar, and each and every statue was breathtaking. It took all those small details to make this extravagant church. Pictures don’t do it justice, but they will definitely be little reminders of how amazing this sight was. Another one of our favorite parts of the weekend was the dessert…ohhh the dessert! Every single bite, scent, and texture was just right. The detail and precision that goes in to baking each dessert is what makes these delectable treats so enjoyable. With every bite, we felt like we were eating delicious pieces of art. Something that really blew our minds was the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. Big is an understatement…it was HUGE. It is usually somewhere between 70 and 100 feet tall. Although we missed the actual revealing of the lit Christmas tree, we got to see them putting the lights on. We can only imagine the detail and planning that had to go into this event. Details, Details, Details! We think this aspect of New York is what makes it so magical to us.

We’ve decided to try and appreciate the details in our every day lives.  Once you add up every wonderful detail in your life, you will see that you have created a masterpiece. Try not to get so consumed with looking at the “big picture” that you forget to enjoy the little details.  They are crucial!  After all, little things make big things happen.
