Yes, friends!! You read that post title correctly!! We are leaving on a jet plane bound for New York City!! The Big Apple! The city that never sleeps! The city so chic that you feel like you’re dripping in diamonds!!
Alright, so I may have made up that last one, but it’s probably an accurate description. I mean, this is the same city that is home to the one and only Carrie Bradshaw, and she’s about as chic and fashionable as they get, so I’m pretty sure New York City is just waiting for me to soak up all the culture, charm and sophistication its five boroughs have to offer.
As you may remember, this isn’t the first time I’ve entered a New York state of mind — pun intended! I’ve been there once before, all the way back in 2002. In fact, it was the last family vacation that we ever took before my father was diagnosed with cancer; that bittersweet notion certainly isn’t lost on me. I wonder if all the memories of that trip will come flooding back as we walk through Central Park or cruise around Times Square.
There’s no doubt that it may be a bit emotional, but I’m so excited to see my family! It’s always a wonderful reunion when my mom’s family gets together, and my cousin Mona is the perfect New York City tour guide — she’s got lots of fun stuff planned for us, including taking in a Broadway show! Can you guess which show we’re seeing? Maybe this post will give you a hint!
We’ll be gone all week, but I’ve scheduled some posts for your reading pleasure! And don’t worry, a huge blog post (or maybe several…) is coming up when I get home!! After all, I’m sure I’ll have lots of stories about my adventures and tons of fun photos to share! Can you imagine little old me in the bustling metropolis? Ooooh, this is going to be the trip of a lifetime — I can feel it, and we haven’t even left yet!
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. Really, let’s just state the obvious right now, shall we?? I’m going to overshare the heck out of this trip!!! New York City, get ready for me!!!!! xoxo
