A Wife Loved Like The Church

I Heart New York

If there is one thing I love it is a big city. Chicago, Seattle, Boston, London, Paris. If there is one {American} city I love the most it is without doubt New York. Even as a little kid I just knew I would love New York. The people, the crowded subways, the hustle and bustle, the culture. It is an amazing city. Many years ago, Jonathan and I planned to move there. We even went so far as to check out real estate on one of our visits. But God called us to stay in Iowa {which we love and are so incredibly thankful for}. We decided that if we can’t move to New York, we needed to make sure we visited often.  We went every two years until Julia was born. Since 2007, neither of us have been back. Until now.

I leave today for New York. I’m visiting two of my girlfriends from college and another girlfriend from Iowa. I cannot wait. And yet part of me is a little nervous and sad. Aside from saying goodbye to my girls for the second time ever, I’ve travel only once to a big city without Jonathan. And never to New York without him. It’s not that I couldn’t, but I just don’t {and why would you go without your best friend?}. This is a new experience and adventure for me. One that has a bittersweetness to it. I’m looking forward so much to my time away, but I’m grateful that I can come back home to the warmth and love of my family.

I’m so excited for you! I can’t wait to read your recap posts (with tons of pictures, I hope). But I know what you mean about loving to come home. There is *nothing* like home!
I have not traveled alone since before Squishy’s arrival. I think my first chance might be Blissdom 11 (hopefully!).

Have a great time it sounds like you are going to have a wonderful adventure! I would love for you to share about it when you come back on my Thursday’s Travel Tales & Tips linky party. I have never been to NYC, but I hope to go some day.

Yay! Welcome to my part of the blogging ‘hood! I live ten minutes outside of NYC and I love living here. Have an absolutely fabulous time and don’t worry about a thing. I hear you on the leaving kids part–it’s TORTURE. And I’m also not the best when I’m away from hubs. But try and enjoy the time you have and make the most of it! Glad to have you around!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend! Even though we were just away on our special trip, I am totally jealous! Good luck getting dressed each day 😉
