I do enjoy living and working and overall being in New York City. There's honestly no place like it in the world. I was asked a few times over the weekend if I would consider moving here and no, I wouldn't, but I do enjoy the life I have now where I get to come here for work and live and love the place while I'm here. Especially because oddly enough I have a wide range of old friends that have moved here and whom I get to see while I'm here. I even have a family member! Here's a few photos in no particular order and a sentence or two to explain them.
Erlinda, one of my old bests Alex's sister moved here almost 11 years ago and it was another one of those evenings where we yakked so long that we were the last at the restaurant. Then we visited Serendipity 3 which was luckily open late. Neat little place.Banksy NY: All City.
Serendipity Frozen Hot Chocolate.This is my New York Accent.
Shake Shack and buy fries and a shake. That won't come back to bite us in the ass at 4am, great idea.
Roberta's in Williamsburg. Outta control.
The weather dipped a lot more than I was prepared for and I had to get myself a warmer coat and went with this one. It's perfect. I only wear t-shirts underneath it it's so warm. Plus it has top pockets for your sunglasses! Also see how good my bangs and hair look? New York water baby.
Belvedere Castle in Central Park.
My ovaries don't grow three sizes at things just willy nilly but the thought of bringing my kids to Central Park someday does fill me with a sense of not horrified.Dog.
There was a 5 mile marathon happening in Central Park on Sunday and I wish I'd known about it beforehand 'cause I might have been crazy enough to try it.
I've decided that when my nieces Angie and Lyla are around 8 or 9 I will tell them that if they get good grades, when they're 10, I will bring them to New York City and show them around just us. Catch them right before they become teenagers and show them a little bit of the world and that if they apply themselves in life they can do anything. I assume Em and Jay will take their girls all over the world but I'm not sure my sisters will ever be in a place where they can do that for their daughters.
I promise someday I will.
