Hello New York
It was a cold and windy weekend to transport this respectably sized baby bump around the streets of New York City, but it was well worth it. Every year my mom takes me to the city to experience what's good in theater, food, and people watching.
We saw South Pacific in the most intimate theater at Lincoln Center. I used to dance around the house and sing "I'm gonna wash that man right outta my hair" and "Dites-moi pourquoi...la vie est belle?" when I was ten, so I have fond associations with this musical. As we took our seats Saturday night I was hoping that the production would be an updated, culturally sensitive version, and in my opinion, it was. I tried Ethiopian food for the first time, which was fun. The next day we had brunch at a little French place in Brooklyn, where we met my best friend Rachel from college. All wonderful experiences. What's better, though, than seeing what people are wearing in the Big Apple?
My mom is as sweet as the red velvet cupcake and ginger cookies we picked up at the little bakery before leaving Brooklyn.
Life is a highway! This is how I felt:
heading home, but on to the next adventure.
