New York, Baby!!! That’s Where It’s At!!!
ORIGINALLY POSTED 7/6/11–Start spreading the news….I’m leaving today. Well, not today, but this weekend I’ll be in New York City! This is my all time favorite city, so as I’m sitting here typing I can’t stop smiling.
It’s funny, soon after I submitted the last blog I got a call and received the opportunity to attend the annual American Association for Justice convention in NYC. Clearly, God knows what he’s doing. He has such wonderful things in store for me that it’s a shame I keep getting in the way of His plans.
I’ll be able to attend legal seminars and network at the convention, but I am especially looking forward to a mini-vacation. My last vacation was in 2007 when my family and I spent a week in NYC. Since then I have been in school, working, or in school AND working—I’m mentally and physically drained. Ironically, the fast-pace and overload of NYC is just what I need for a few days. The frantic buzz of NYC makes everything else pale in comparison. I imagine that by the time I come back, I’ll look at my hectic life and be grateful for its comparatively slow and steady pace. This is just what I needed to lift my spirits.
My mom’s going with me, so watch out 5th Avenue…the girls will be loose in the Big City! I’ve also found tickets for us to see Jersey Boys on Broadway, but that’s a surprise. Don’t tell! Sixty-degree evenings in July!?! Sweet!
