We decided that my parents, Bobby and I will meet up in New York the week after Thanksgiving and split our time between Manhattan and Long Island. Hanukkah happens to fall during that week (unusually early this year!) and so does the Rockefeller Center tree lighting, which my mom really wants to see.
The timing is perfect and I think we all are desperately in need of a vacation.
Our biggest obstacle so far has been finding proper lodging, since I'm phobic about hotels and Bobby wants to stay in a B&B or some sort of colonial inn on Long Island.
After much trial and error, and learning just how expensive B&Bs on Long Island are, we finally decided on a converted barn in Bellport.
I'm so excited not only to see much of my family for the first time in more than a year, but to stay in such a lovely place.
Now for the really fun part: choosing a Broadway show, museums and activities!
