Earlier this year the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment launched a campaign called “New York in 25” to highlight NYC life. I’ve seen the posters on the subway and they have given me a sense of comradery and thankfulness because I can definitely relate! It’s fun to read them, and I instantly get in a better mood, since my commute is not one of the things that would make this list, ha!
I thought I’d take a shot at my own New York in 25:
Shakespeare in the Park
Beautiful Cultures & Diversity
Friends that are Family
Creative living spaces
There are really so many things that I love about this city that we call home. Even though we’ve been here for over 9 years, we’re still discovering new things about it. Having grown up in the suburbs, it feels like there are a ton of differences when it comes to raising a family, so we’re looking forward to getting to continue to learn how to navigate our growing family here too.
We’re thrilled that we’re expecting another little girl early next year, and that she gets to grow up here like Lucie, our city kid.
I guess one thing I would add to the list above if I had more words than 25, is Frequent Visitors! NYC is such a popular destination and we love that we get to host so many frequent visitors throughout the year. It helps us to not feel too homesick about family back in Florida. They’ve come up so many times (especially this year when we haven’t had the ability to make it down) that they’re honorary New Yorkers too!
Let us know if you’re ever in town! Hope you enjoy some pics of our most recent activities, like apple picking with friends, attending a wedding on a Christmas Tree farm where Lucie got to be one of the sweet flower girls, and just daily city living.
Love, Los Hickson
