Next time, Mittens.

Tonight's sky was amazing. After accidently walking through the World Financial Centers (yes, they are still standing...however, they are crumbling, if you know what I mean) I am freezing cold in my inadequate sweaters. In only a few minutes, my hands turn numb which is such a blessing since I am able to stop focusing on keeping them warm and start focusing on where I am. I look up and immediately must get my camera out and start clicking because the sky made me gasp. It has been raining and storming all day, and finally, at the end of it, the sun decides it needs a few moments to shine. It was difficult due to the state of my frozen fingers but I was able to get a couple of beautiful snaps. Here is one of them. The little pointy thing on the left side is the Statue Of Liberty.

The esplandes along the Hudson, behind my building have so many breathtaking views--I need to start taking more walks with my camera, along with my mittens.

Thanksgiving Eve

So I have started a blog...I don't know why. I am not very good at keeping up with things like this. I can't even keep up on twitter! Nobody knows I have started a blog yet...I didn't even know if I would get around to writing a post for a few days. But here I am!
Being alone in this apartment in the Big Apple for the holiday weekend without any distractions, I realize I am thinking. Just thinking about things! It's tres fun. Here is what I am thinking about....

First of all, I found this awesome musician. He is amazing! Well, I actually only know one song that he does and it is genius. I want to share it with you. Ladies and Gents, may I present:

It is Thanksgiving Eve! I have mixed feelings about this wonderful occassion this year. I thought I would be ok not being home during one of the greatest holidays, but it is much harder than I thought it would be. I miss my family! But, I am grateful for my sweet friend Bree. She has invited me to go with her to her cousin's home in Connecticut for the afternoon. (That is one thing I love about the East Coast--you can hop on a train and go anywhere). Even though I won't be with my family, I get to be with a family having a delicious dinner, all the while, thinking about the thing I am most grateful for in the entire world: My Family.
