It is crazy to think that tomorrow [August 2nd] marks 6 months I have lived in New York. I remember people always telling me as a kid “before you know it ..” simply implying that time goes by at an incredible speed, BUT I never believed them. It felt like I waited centuries to turn 16 [& get my license] or to turn 18 [& graduate high school]. I believe now – you start college and time must double. (Lesson learned: enjoy every second and look forward to every day, not something FAR in the future, because the more you wish time away ..the faster it goes). And on we go ..
So my last post was 5 months ago (wow!) and much as happened. It would take too much time to recap, but in short ..Jeff & I have had MANY visitors & have taken full advantage of the excitement that is New York City. Instead of recapping w/ lengthy paragraphs, I’ll stick w/ pictures. [See below – the past 5 months].
Putting the “Jersey Shore”/”Jerseylicious” stereotypes aside – we looked, found, and rented in NEW JERSEY. My commute is now 15 mins to work (vs. the 60 mins when we lived in Queens) and we found a gorgeous apartment, w/ amazing amenities.
In June I finally convinced my parents to come visit, and we all got a pleasant surprise when we found out my brother was coming too. Jeff’s dad & brother also came out the same weekend .. we had a BIT of fun!
That same weekend, my friends, Ashley & Tyler were in NYC. So we met up w/ them for dinner & a trip to the top of the Rockefeller building.
THEN – Jeff’s parents came out to NYC, because Jeff scored 4 tickets to the one & only PAUL McCARTNEY @ Yankee Stadium. 1 word: AMAZING!!
And last weekend, my best friend Kristy came to visit. [I told you, Jeff & I have had a full apartment this summer – we have loved every second of it].
When we are guest-less: Jeff & I have had our fair share of NY fun. Just to name a few ..
Now that we’re up-to-speed – Jeff made up our dry erase calendar for August this morning, and boy oh boy it is going to be a busy month. Starting with a work trip to San Diego this weekend and ending with a “birthday vacation” to Miami [Jeff & I both turn a year older @ the end of the month, 27th & 28th]. The adventure continues .. :)
