Sunday morning was the big day – our first wedding anniversary! Since it was raining outside we did the only right thing and ordered room service and had breakfast in bed.
Later, when it had stopped raining, we went out and walked around Meatpacking a bit while checking a few shops.
When we felt hungry we had lunch at Chelsea Market. I love this place, they have some great sushi! We sat and watched the stream of people passing through… That’s one thing I love doing when I’m traveling. I saw Bambi Northwood-Blyth (wearing those Prada creepers) and some other people with great style.
Chelsea Market is located in what used to be the “National Biscuit Company” in the late 1800′s and it’s where the Oreo cookie was invented and produced!
Hello old married couple ; )
Since it was too cloudy to hang by the poolside we decided to go to the Cowshed Spa at the Soho House. There I had one of the best massages of my life! It was the best way I could imagine to spend the afternoon!
Later we got dressed and ready for the evening. We started at a place that we used to visit when we first started dating 4 years ago: The Spice Market.
I had the lychee bellini and he had a raspberry mojito. This place used to be such a gem, I still love the decoration and food but it’s somehow not the same vibe there anymore.
We moved on to a One if by Land in West Village. The atmosphere was really great and a little mysterious…
This place is said to be haunted by the ghost of Aaron Burr, who used to live here. He is famous for killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel on July 11, 1804 and employees have seen chairs being pulled out from people and dishes flying through the room!
We got a table upstairs and had this view.
The food was delicious and we had a great time talking about the wedding last year and all the plans we have for the future.
Afterward we walked back through West Village and ended our evening with some cocktails at The Standard hotel. It was such a great day, I can’t remember last time I felt that relaxed. And it’s amazing how one year just flies by, it felt like yesterday when we were walking out on the courtyard at Kalmar Castle, through a cloud of flower petals and rice grains.
