A New York City Love Affair

January 11, 2012

What can I say? New York, you’re beautiful.

I was not prepared to fall this far in love with New York City. And so fast. But it happened. It happened and I don’t quite know how to get it out of my mind.

It’s not an unrequited love, New York was incredibly warm and generous with it’s affection. It enveloped me with it’s charm, perpetually teasing me, enticing me to stay and leaving me with no doubt about it’s true feelings.

Yet it is a love that is separated by a grand distance. It’s not like it could never be…one day in the future maybe we’ll be together. But for now, I’ll have to settle on these memories. Snapshots of a beautiful time, my Summer romance with New York City. I will forever be in a New York State of Mind. And that’s just fabulous.

    I think everyone definitely leaves a piece of their heart in New York. It's easy to fall in love with it, but so, so hard to leave!

    Yes it could be, most certainly. Just remember our sneaky plan for convincing a certain someone 😉

    And then I shall come and stay for months on end! Or my brother will help get me over there, and we'll spend all our time skipping around Central Park together. Because, of course, in dream world, no one works in NYC 😛

    I have loved your NYC posts. I went there last year and also fell madly in love with the city. 5 months on and I still dreaming about it. NYC just gets under your skin.

    Aww, beautiful, Heidi! A very good friend of mine just moved to NYC for half a year, and I'm very excited to hear how she likes it. I'm afraid she's freezing right now, though. 😉

    Oh i know exactly how you feel. Our love affair started in June 2010. My husband feels the same way! We know we will go back again and again. You and your girls looked gorgeous.

    I just came across this post & being a NY native I have to say you did a beautiful photo essay of my lovely hometown! I've been away for 3 months and makes me long for it even more. 🙂 As I already told you, I feel the same about Melbourne. Will have to work out a house-swap! 🙂
