New York, New York

Start spreading the news
I’m leaving today
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
To find I’m king of the hill, top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you, New York, New York.

I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you, New York, New York.

It’s happening! We’re moving to New York City this summer! We leave on June 30th. We’re flying home to the Midwest to spend the summer with family and then we’re heading out to NYC in August. Brett has been accepted to NYU for their Interactive Telecommunications Program. In two years, I’ll be married to a man who has a Master’s! I’m so proud of him for getting into his top choice in schools and for even receiving a scholarship. We’re excited to be making the move across the country.

That being said, I am also nervous to be making the move across the country. We’ve lived in California for the last 4 years and we really feel like it is our home. We love it here. We love our family here. We love our friends here. We love the ward here. We love the weather here. And then I thought about what my life will be like in New York where the apartments are known to be tiny, there is not good weather, you have to walk everywhere and can’t buy more than one or two bags of groceries at the store and then haul it all home. Oh yeah, with a baby too. So I’m nervous to be making such a huge change in my life. But, as the packing continues, it’s really hitting me that we’re leaving. And the more I realize that, the more I realize the amazing opportunity given to us. We get to live in New York City! Despite all the things I’m nervous about, it will be an adventure. And once I adjust to the new life, I’m sure we will love it. So many people live in New York City with babies so why can’t I? And think of all the wonderful things about New York. There are so many “tourist” things to see like the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Rockefeller Center, Ground Zero, broadway shows, Chinatown, Little Italy, subway rides, beautiful skyline, awesome food, great shopping, sports games, museums, etc. There is more than enough to keep us busy while we’re there. Soon, we’ll be calling the city that never sleeps our new home!
