My wife and I try to get to New York City once a year. We decided this year we would pass on it because we have a few other upcoming trips, but Hayley bought surprise tickets anyway and we made it! The majority of the blogs I post have to do with my photography work, and this is different only in the way that it chronicles more of a documentary of our personal trip. I love New York with my wife. Naturally I adore visiting museums and seeing both things new and old in this city – exploring and gaining inspiration. But truly nothing compares to visiting a museum with Hayley because she is so in awe, so genuinely in love with art, so interested. This trip we went with our good friends Racey and Austin to a David Bowie Roller Disco. We got tattoos of our dogs like any good queer couple. We saw the best thing our eyes have ever seen, American Psycho on Broadway. We hit a bunch of museums, including The Whitney for the first time and a few galleries in Chelsea. Our dear friend and officiant of our wedding, Fonzi, hosted an incredible meal for us at Taboon. We ate the best pancakes that exist (Eva Jean’s!), our favorite noodle bowls (Momofuku!), and lots of amazing things in between, mostly sweet for me (Max Brenner!). We walked the streets late at night hand in hand, talking about tiny pieces of the life we are constructing together and aside from the unseasonably cold weather, it was such a beautiful trip.
