the city that stole my heart*

dearest nyc,

you had my heart the first time i laid eyes on you. you had always been a dream in my heart. a place that combines amazing theatre, great shopping and indescribable beauty... how could i not adore you?

what i didn't know is how quickly you would sink into my bones, into the very heart of me. you made my heart sing from the moment i stepped off the plane.

you changed me... for the first time in my life, i felt like a woman. not a young girl trying to find her way in this big world. I had found this amazing corner of the world and felt so happy to be a part of it.

i'm coming back to visit you this year, and i feel like i'm coming home. i want to spend time wandering your busy streets and photographing your unmeasurable beauty. i can't wait to see you again.

with love,

  1. Me too! I went in 2004 to meet friends who lost thier son in 9/11. I fell in love with the city, which is so different from mine. The architecture is to die for.
