a family affair.

Since I moved to New York, the majority of the time that I spend with my family is when I visit them in Pennsylvania. Whenever it comes time to see each other, I always jump on the opportunity to go there and veg out for a couple of days. But yesterday, it was their turn to visit me!

First up on the agenda was a visit to none other than the Christmas Spectacular show at Radio City Music Hall. I still love doing the touristy traditional NYC holiday activities…not to mention I’m slightly obsessed with Christmas in general…so this was right up my alley.

Afterward we paid a quick visit to Rockefeller Center to see the tree and spy on ice skaters.

It was actually my first time seeing the tree up close and lit at night. What a beaut!


After a bit of a struggle to get a cab (HELLO Midtown during the holidays) we headed downtown for dinner at Corsino. My first time at Corsino was with Caitlin, and it has been one of my favorite Italian spots in the city ever since.

We started with three of their delicious crostinos: ricotta & orange honey, basil pesto, and radicchio & goat cheese.

For my entrée I went with mezzi rigatoni, fresh cranberry beans, escarole & shaved parmigiano. So simple, yet so incredibly good.

And for dessert, tiramisu for one. We weren’t in the sharing mood 😉

The longer I live here, the more I realize that time with my family is crucial to my overall quality of life. I just love them so much. And, thanks to the holidays, I’ll be seeing more of them all very soon!

Do you live away from your family? How often do you see them?

    Wow it looks like you had such a wonderful time with your fam visiting! I went to see the Rockettes a few years ago with the fam and loved it! And that tree really is so gorgeous! That dinner looks amazing too- especially those crostino. I’m lucky that I live close to my family so I get to see them all the time- if they weren’t here I might consider moving, but it’s really important to me to be nearby!
