Christmas Eve in New York

I made it.

I flew to New York by myself (first time flying alone!) and I am here in my Aunt’s apartment relaxing. It is Christmas Eve and toasty and warm. How ridiculous.

I love this city. I’m so in love with the horrible smell and subways and the crazy people. I must be out of my mind.

I’m so nervous and excited for this trip, but I just know it’s going to be magical. Merry Christmas.

Who wants the worry, the noise, the dirt, the heat?
