An afternoon in Morningside Heights

The last few weeks of summer have been jam packed, and as you can see, I'm way behind on my blogging! The never-ending cycle!  Well, here we go...

We were in NYC a few weekends ago, visiting my BFF from college, and her dapper fiancé. He lives in Toronto, and she's going to be moving there in a few months. So Joe and I decided to squeeze in one last visit to the Big Apple while we still had friends to visit! On our first day, our friends were still working, so we had some free time to explore. A coworker of mine suggested we head uptown to Morningside Heights, to see the beautiful Episcopal cathedral and other charming sites in the area. The church, St. John the Divine Cathedral, was amazing! It felt like a church in France or England-- it was huge, and full of beautiful stained glass. A hike from our hotel in the Financial District, but well worth the trip!

Impressive, right? This church was exceptionally beautiful, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for less touristy things to do in New York. We also wandered through the Columbia University campus, and imagined what it would be like to spend a bajillion dollars going to such a well respected and historical college :) Pretty nice digs, but I still have a soft spot for good ole' Mizzou!

Good news, too. Next Monday I start taking a photography class, where I can finally learn how to better compose and edit pictures. Yeah!! If I have some free time, I'll be sure to add some pictures to the blog, once I have a clue what I'm doing.

  1. I am head over heels for NYC! I used to visit all of the time, but I've never been to MH! Yet another reason to go back...hmm:)
