Letters From … New York City, By Day

Welcome to the Big Apple!

The city where they don’t sleep! The city of lights! The center of the world! Surprisingly, it’s only 9 hours north of me, yet I’ve never been. During the Thanksgiving Break, my girls all conjoined in DC to visit and spend time together, but from there we spontaneously decided to take a rental car up four more hours, and spend 14 hours in the greatest city!

I don’t have many stories nor words in this post, compared to the others, but that’s because NY left me speechless. Alas, I shall let my photos do the talking.

I don’t know what I was thinking, these significant iconic landmarks in each city has long lines of people watching you pose in them.

NYC is fancy as hell, but when you give me an all-black building, you win.

The bagel store in Brooklyn
I never thought I’d see myself chasing after something I saw on Instagram, but listen, all of these “Instagram food trends” may not be a fluke, they are actually on to something.

These bagels are phenomenal.


By the way, let me pause and explain to you what it means to have a great group of friends. We are all different with different interests, problems, and ideas. But how else do you experience new things if you were with people who enjoyed precisely what you enjoyed?

Central Park was so much more romantic, magical, livelier than I could have imagined.
