Today marks the completion of my first year in New York City! It’s been a year full of challenges and adventures — with a bit of glamour and a whole lot of grit. Still, I’ve been lucky enough to have experienced a few magical moments in NYC and I couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate my first year here than by having a little Carrie Bradshaw moment of my own.
Walking the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time was a special moment for me. It took me nearly six months to actually do it, but once I did, I realized how for the first time, walking from Brooklyn to Manhattan felt like I was heading home. So now I return from time to time — not usually dressed in a fluffy tulle skirt and lace up heels — but always in awe of incredible city I get to call home.
