Never Forget

NeverForget

Over the last two years I’ve spent about the equivalent of 6 months in NYC; it holds a very special place in my heart. I still remember 9/11 like it was yesterday, I was in the third grade and had just visited New York that previous summer. While we had been there, my dad had gone into TKTS in the World Trade Center and for an hour or so and while we were waiting, my mom, my sister and I all laid on benches outside the WTC and just looked up, gazing at the towers. I’m so thankful that I got to see the towers before 9/11. I honestly cannot begin to imagine what New Yorkers went through that day.  As I get older I’m always surprised when I meet kids who were born after 9/11, who only know about it through their textbooks, and not through experience… Never Forget. I got the opportunity to go to the 9/11 Memorial Museum this summer and HIGHLY recommend it if you are going to be in the city.

Quote of the Day//Goodbye NYC

BiggestAdventure

In February 2013, I started to live the life I had always dreamed of.  Since then I have been to NYC seven different times, differing in lengths from three days to over two months all for work related reasons. I’ve gotten to do things I had longed to do for so long like working Fashion Week. I’ve gotten to live the life of my dreams and it has been one crazy adventure.  Leaving New York is always bittersweet, but especially this time.  On one hand, I left my adorable puppy Hudson Bearfoot with his grandparents and miss him like crazy.  On the other hand, this is the first time I’ve ever left New York with no set return date-which is scary.  I know I’ll be back, I just don’t know when.  As I said last summer, spending a summer basically by yourself stretches you tremendously.  It’s taken 21 years, but I’ve finally become content with being by myself doing absolutely nothing.  I’ve learned that sometimes you need to splurge on that fancy dinner, and that yes it is okay to make a reservation for 1. I’ve learned that before anything else, you need to standup for yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you. I’ve learned that everything is walkable in NYC if it is a pretty day (yes, everything). Most importantly though, I’ve learned to be thankful.  Thankful for every day, every person, and every moment, always.
