Bright Lights, Big City

My mother is heading up to New York with my father-in-law. I wish I could go with them! If I had the money and the time I would go. I have so much family up there on my grandmother's side that I haven't met yet! The last time I went it was for a conference for work and I went alone. The time before that was with my first fiance (long story). I loved the hustle and bustle. The city is alive at every hour of the day. When I went alone I roamed the streets at night. I toured Macy's - it is awesome. I caught a Broadway show - Beauty and the Beast with Toni Braxton which was really, really good. I took in the various characters around me. I talked to strangers. It was a great experience. I used to claim the title of "City Girl" but I can't say that anymore. I don't have the energy or the impetus to be out and about unless it's for a specific reason, like when Mocha Girl comes to visit, of course. :)

You should go! It can't be that much for a flight to NY and I know you can use the time off work...

Your mother and your father-in-law? What?

I'm not a fan of the big city. Maybe a day trip but nothing long term.

Manhattan is incredible...there is no other city like it. I can't wait to go back for a visit.

You better hope on a plane and join in on the fun

That sounds like SO much fun! I'm planning a NY trip soon.

I feel so bad, I still have a pile of books I'm sending you, one a Valentines day book, and the holiday just passed. I'm going to get those out though. dont want to disappoint what few fans I have.
