Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you. I am heading home after spending a week with family in New York. I must admit that though I love living in Atlanta, I will miss this place. There’s just something about New York that makes you feel confident and sure of yourself. The people there just seems to have a strong sense of who they are and where they are going. I passed a sign in Times Square that said: “City of Dreams.” No matter who you meet on the street, they came to New York to fulfill a dream of being an actor/actress, a dancer, a millionaire, a fashion designer, or on Broadway. New York is also a big melting pot, and I love that about this great state. Last night while walking through Time Square, we met someone from Jordan and Italy. On one street corner, you are likely to run into people from all over the world. My visit was just an awesome eye opening experience that I will never forget.
Our first day in New York was spent exploring the Big City and visiting the Museum of Natural History. The first place that I had to go to was Mood Fabrics. As I walked in, I was like a kid in a candy store. It was very overwhelming at first, but the employees were so helpful and kind that I felt right at home.
I purchased some great fabrics, but my favorite was a great printed cotton sateen (pictured above) that I plan on using to make a fitted skirt. After hearing #mommy I’m hungry,” twenty times, we found a great spot to get some New York style pizza. The pizza was bigger than my son’s head, but he tackled it on his own.
After a long train ride, we finally made it to the Museum of Natural History. That museum is so spectacular. The way that they took such care and time to recreate these historical artifacts is just amazing. The kid’s favorite area was the Dinosaur world. There were seperate areas for African, Mexican, Asian, and European historical artifacts. There were also animals from land and sea from around the world. I took a lot of pictures, too many to post them all, but I will share a few.
After walking around the museum for a few hours, we headed back to my in-law’s house in Long Island where we were staying for some family fun time. It was a great first day in the city, and there was more good times to come as our adventure in New York continued. Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog, until next time, have an awesome day.
