Start spreading the news

I'm leaving today! As of today, New York City is my new home. Wow, I never thought I would actually say that.

When I was a nanny in New Jersey, 4.5 years ago, my godmother gave me this snow globe. You can wind the knob on the bottom and it plays "New York, New York". I have kept that with me everywhere I go with the goal that one day, I will make it there.

It is hard for me to believe that when I'm finished with work today, I don't have to leave the city. I won't be living out of suitcases and duffel bags commuting from the suburbs or crashing on bestie's couch. I have two hours added to my day without the commute.

I paid rent and my checking account is nearly empty (don't worry, savings is still very much in tact) and I just discovered I like Cup O Noodles. It's not always going to be easy but I'm living out my first goal in life and that's worth it all.


  1. Congrats!! I'm sure it will all work out for
    you :)
