I have been slacking a little with my posts. Part of it...well actually the whole reason is because there has been a lot going on in my life. But here is a little preview of what is going to come. 1. Fireworks! 2. A trip to the museum 3. CLAIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Beautiful Moment

When I decided to use The Holiday as the inspiration for my blog I never realized how closely my life would mirror that of Kate Winslet's character. Yesterday I had an experience that could almost be taken straight from the movie. It is the scene where the transformation that has taken place in Kate Winslet's comes to its culmination. In a moment of awakening she comes to an awareness of who she really is and who she has become. She becomes strong and even more beautiful than she was before. It is a great moment.

I am not saying that I am either strong or beautiful. It is just a beautiful thing to be able to see who you really are.

Daddy Daughter Day

My dad came into town this weekend but Saturday was really the only Daddy-Daughter Day! It was really a great day. We went to breakfast, walked through Central Park, took the Circle Line to the Statue of Liberty, went to the Financial District and Ground Zero and saw Spamalot. I love my dad! It was a great weekend.

I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home!

Okay, not really when Daddy comes home but when Daddy comes to my home! My dad called about a week ago to tell me he was coming to the city this weekend. I was so excited I almost burst out of my skin! Now I only need to wait a few more hours and I get to see my dad!

What a beautiful day!

Zion in Babylon

I love making new friends and learning new things!

Saturday morning I went on a church history tour of lower Manhattan. The information was facinating but the sites were a bit underwhelming (no original structures still exist) except for a super-cool secret park we found on top of a parking garage. It is my new favorite hangout! I have been back three times already!

Mary Poppins!

One of the best things about living in New York is being able to go to a Broadway show whenever you want. Kelly, Juleen, Ellie, Courtnie, her mom and I all went to see Mary Poppins on Wednesday night. Though quite different from the movie, it was a lot of fun.

It is my summer goal to see at least three shows a month! I have to live it up. Who knows how long I will be here!

Fleet Week

For me Memorial Day weekend started with the arrival of the Navy for fleet week. Juleen, Courtnie and I went to Battery Park to watch Kelly work and see the ships come into the harbor. We could have had our faces on the channel 2 news but we had all rolled out of bed and blatently refused to be interviewed.
