I don’t have much to show in the way of Halloween goodness yet because I’m saving it for a super long post tomorrow. I’m also just a tad behind schedule because instead of staying home this weekend to clean the house and prep decorations I drove an hour and a half into NYC Friday night to hang out with my mother and sister for the night.
It was necessary and a lot of fun. Up until we bought of our first house in Jersey two years ago I was a New Yorker. Now I’m originally from the south but I had lived in New York for ten years, which is the magic number. After ten years you’re officially allowed to say you’re “from New York.”
I don’t regret for a second moving our family to a larger house, with a big yard, and freedom to home school; but I do miss the city sometimes. I miss being able to walk to everything, the constant noise and lights that become so familiar, and the energy that comes with being one person in a huge city yet feeling completely at home.
So when I get the chance, I like to spend a night in my former city. Going to dinner at 10:30 and enjoying Magnolias cupcakes for breakfast. It was refreshing.
Here's the view from our midtown hotel.
Well, off to get this house together for a party!
Until next time.......
