Guys guess what? I’m going to New York in one month! I can only ever go one or two months without going back. It’s just fuel for my creativity. Some people hate NYC, and I simply don’t understand why. It’s a massive city of interesting people with interesting ideas.

When you’re there you can have any dream you want, and you’re still not the craziest dreamer there.


 Maybe it’s because I started going to the city when I was so young, but nothing about New York seems intimidating or unsafe to me. I’m not saying I’m going to stroll through the Bronx alone at night, but I’m never worried about getting lost or traveling there alone. And I’ve found that even though us “East Coasters” can be blunt, we’re not monsters, and people will truly help you out if you need.

All that to say, I am so stinking excited. I’m going to be spending five days eating great food and wandering around taking pictures that inspire me. Can you image a more perfect time??


 If I was bringing my dog it would be really hard to get me to leave…
