This summer has been a busy one for the Almeida Family! Both of Anderson’s brothers and their wives (Will & Sara and Wes & Kylene) had babies! Within a week of each other! And that gave us a great excuse for a long-overdue trip to Grand Rapids to meet our new nephews, Gracian and Fierce. […]

I love social media for so many reasons! But one of the biggest is the way it allows us to find out about and connect with other businesses, like the Palms Retro. The owners of the retro-inspired hotel reached out to us recently (thanks to Instagram!) and invited us to enjoy a little stay-cation in […]

Every time we get back from a trip to New York City, and people ask “What’s your favorite part about the city?” we can’t really answer them. At least not in a quick one or two sentences. We love it ALL! Imagine me saying this while spinning in circles with my arms outstretched. Ha! But […]

We loved the High Line and the Brooklyn Bridge! We also love the Subway! I agree with you about people watching! My accent draws lot's of attention and most people are super nice OR they just want to hear my redneck slang in the big city. Loved all the photos!ReplyCancel

      pinkcoffeephoto - Hey Andrea! A few favorites: The Marriott Marquis in Times Square (right in the middle of the madness!), The Marriott Downtown (this one is right beside the 911 Memorial and in the hub of the financial district, and The Tuscany. It’s a beautiful boutique hotel on a quiet street in Midtown – just three blocks away from Grand Central. We’ve done ‘name your own price” with Priceline before and gotten an amazing deal!ReplyCancel
