My birthday is something I look forward to celebrating every year; what’s better than a day all about you!? My mom and dad are seriously the best at making me feel so special on my birthday. This year I wanted to go to the West Village to celebrate my 18th and that’s exactly what we did!

We started our day off by taking an early morning train into the city. As soon as we reached Penn Station and started walking toward the West Village, we ran into a celebrity!

It has always been one of my dreams to run into someone famous on the streets of NYC and the fact that it happened on my birthday was the most perfect start to the day!

After walking around 20 blocks we finally reached the West Village, one of my favorite neighborhood’s in the city! It is filled with lots of artsy restaurants, fantastic shopping, and the most beautiful homes. We decided to stop at The Butcher’s Daughter for my birthday breakfast! The menu is vegan/vegetarian based and has the most amazing food and the best service.

After a delicious meal we headed to the High Line. This was the first time I have ever been and I loved it so much! The views were incredible and there was an abundance of cool artists and vendors throughout the park.

As soon as the park ended, we made our way back to the Village to check out the gorgeous homes. I couldn’t help but pretend I was Carrie Bradshaw walking through the streets of the city…hopefully one of these homes will be mine someday!

All of that walking around sure did conjure up an appetite. We stopped by Patisserie Cloud for pastries and coffees…it definitely hit the spot and satisfied my sweet tooth!

Reenergized from all of the sugar, we took a stroll over to Washington Square Park. We couldn’t have had more perfect weather. The sun was shining all day and it was just the right temperature, around 53 degrees! It was so much fun getting to hang out in the park and people watch!
