30 Degree Weekend

View from the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Museum Row 

I spent this past weekend in New York with a few of my best girlfriends from college.  Having graduated from college in a town that is eternally sunny, the four of us were perpetually frozen during the whole weekend.  But, the icing on the cake was reuniting with my freshman year roommate, who is a temporary New Yorker (until she moves back to the best coast).  Sharing a room with these amazing girls and seeing old faces made me nostalgic for our dorm days, and although we were only together for a short weekend, I realized that time doesn't weaken true friendships.
