If you live on the east coast…we survived the blizzard of the century! Which turned out to not really be the blizzard of the century…but, hey I’m not complaining about a day off and to be honest I actually found the fresh snow beautiful. Emphasis on the word “fresh” because I’m sure by now New York has gotten the best of the snow and now it’s all mushy, black and just miserable looking.
When I love something, I become incredibly passionate about it. For example, Banana Republic. I love Banana Republic and I’m incredibly passionate about the brand to the point where I wanted to cry walking into the store the other day because everything was so beautiful and I wanted it all. Dramatic? For sure, but I’m being serious.
The point is, I’m incredibly passionate and in love with my city. I was born in Manhattan and up until college educated in Manhattan so the New York attitude and the New York way was all I ever knew. Call me crazy, but leaving NYC for college was the best thing I’ve ever done. Leaving for four years really made me see the city in a whole new light and really made me appreciate where I’m from.
I smile every time I see a picture of NYC on Pinterest, I can’t help, but feel a sense of pride going to work every morning and being able to walk around the city, I’m a sucker for any piece of clothing or accessory with an NYC theme and yes I do in fact believe NYC is the greatest city in the world, that the world revolves around NYC and that we do in fact have the best bagels & pizzas. I love the classic NYC attitude and although we may have a stereotype of being rude and mean, I love that at the end of the day the people of this city really come together and rally with one another.
Ok, ok I’ll stop rambling because I can go on and on, but the moral of this story is I’m a New York City girl through and through and although I have a great appreciation for many other cities and want to travel, you’ll never convince me that my city isn’t the greatest city in the world.
