Rachel and I met last Memorial Day. We've been together a year, yet have traveled internationally, been living together since just after New Year's, and are "engaged to be engaged." She is the love of my life, so I wanted to treat her right for our anniversary. I told her we were going to New York She arranged the bus tickets, while I arranged everything else, and I kept everything that we were doing a complete surprise until the day we did it.
We had a wonderful time! We wandered the city a lot (she'd never been as a tourist, and it's been a long time since I've been purely to sight see), went to the Top of the Rock, played chess in Central Park, and saw three shows: an off-Broadway parody of the Harry Potter books (hilarious), a jazz show at Birdland (wonderful) and one of my all-time favorite musicals: Wicked. We had tons of great vegetarian/vegan food, and an overall wonderful experience.
