It's been ever on my mind--as always but especially this week. On a scale of 1-10, I'm about at a 15 on being homesick.My uncle is visiting for school/business. He ate Shake Shack, got in the same elevator with Gus Malzahn--(how random), and is getting quite the education on all things business, culture, and atmosphere I'm sure. I keep begging him for photos and can't wait to hear about his trip.
Several of my favorite bloggers have been on point this week with posts that speak to me, as well as the Instagramers posting all the spring photos in Central Park, etc. http://annaosgoodby.com/ http://newyorkcliche.com/ http://www.tracysnewyorklife.com/
And then just this afternoon, a fire broke out in the East Village, causing a building to collapse! My heart goes out to this neighborhood! See news story here.
And these new series:
Thus inspiring me to finish a blog draft I've had for 6+ months or more (I have lots of those on standby.)
Books, music, movies, fashion, the history, icons, and memories made in this city are endless. It haunts you as you crave more of it. Or it does me. When I need my NYC fix, I gravitate to books, tv shows such as Friends and Seinfeld and movies.
