One year ago today I moved to this city and I never looked back.
Ever since I was young, I remember dreaming of such a moment, but I never truly believed that it would come true for me. I’m not quite sure when I decided to not let my dreams just be dreams. I have a feeling it was somewhere in between Zach getting a call from The Today Show while we were eating at Buffalo Wild Wings one day and the moment where I stood with tears streaming down my face as I lugged two large suitcases on a one-way plane ride to NYC. When I look back on it, I guess I never really went out and chased my dreams…I was kind of just pushed in to them after life got sick of me staying in my comfort zone for too long.
February. The month of love.
It’s always funny to me to see what this specific month seems to do to people. It creates such a huge divide between the ones who choose to celebrate love and the ones who get all down-in-the-dumps because they don’t think that they have it. Well I am here to bring you some good news – we all have love – and that’s something worth celebrating.
Christmas in New York.
Oh, how sweet that sounds. I have been counting down the days for December to hit so it would be socially acceptable to start getting in to the holiday spirit. I have never been in the Big Apple during the holidays, but I already know that I’m going to love it. The city is buzzing with joy and almost every street corner is covered in twinkling lights and holiday decor! Where ever I go, I literally feel like I’m walking through a Lifetime Holiday movie set.
Another weekend has come and gone in the blink of an eye.
Though I feel that these weekends never seem to be long enough, it excites me to know that the faster they go, the sooner the day will come that I get to marry the love of my life. We keep on telling ourselves that “this weekend is going to be a lazy weekend” but somehow we always find new adventures to fill up our time. This time our adventurous hearts took us to Coney Island.
New York may not be known as the “city of love” but it will be the city where mine and Zach’s love grows as a married couple. When thinking about where we might want to get our engagement photos done, we immediately thought of what will be our first home together – New York City. It may not be the location where either of us grew up, or the place where we got engaged, but it is the city where we will start our new adventure as husband and wife.
