We spent 10 years in the big apple. I moved there a single girl, fresh out of college.. bright lights, big city. I used to skip home from work through times square, pinching myself. I left New York with a family, a husband I adore, a son and a daughter.
One year ago we packed up our little apartment, dragged every last box down the stoop and into our moving truck. We drove down our beautiful tree lined street one last time and said goodbye to Brooklyn. JR commented how strange it was to see our place empty.. our place, where we kissed on the doorstep, where we made a home for the two of us, where we brought our tiny babies home from the hospital.
We miss it still.
So this week I'll be posting our favorite children's books about NYC. One a day. We've been buying them up for our little library, so the kids will remember the special place where they were born. I hope you enjoy them too.
