5 years

On September 8th, 2008, my mother and I loaded up my van and took turns driving down to Forest Hills, Queens, for what has turned into the adventure of a lifetime.

To say that this anniversary is a big deal to me would be a gross understatement. Living here is the realization of a dream.  Every day gets better and better.  

I walk through Central Park nearly every day on my way to work

Any time I want to, I can be in Times Square, the most exciting intersection in the world.

On a normal day, this is my view:

I have two jobs that bring me a huge amount of joy and satisfaction, at the end of the day.  And I have met a dazzling array of interesting people who have enriched my life along the way.

Happy Five-Year Anniversary, New York City!  Every day I love you more and more. 

Yes, even you, Brooklyn.

  1. Happy five year anniversary in NY! I'm glad you found the home of your heart. It looks like such an amazing town, and I hope that one day I can visit the Big Apple as well (after living in the "Little Apple" for 2 years).
