four-minute friday: nyc

Go. I've been sitting here trying to think of what I can four-minute about. And all I can think of is NYC. So I finally decided to go with that.

Because I'm going there today!

As a surprise gift, my sweet friend Tracee bought us bus tickets from DC to NYC for the day. I am soooooo excited!

Depending on how long you've been around The Grit, you may or may not know that I'm from New York. Long Island, to be exact. (Go Yankees!) And after 18 months back in the States from Africa, this will be my first visit back to NY. Thus, my outta-my-mind excitement.

Is it bad that in thinking through what I want to do with my less-than-twelve-hours in NYC, all I can think about is food?! Bagels... Pizza... My favorite Italian restaurant... A pretzel-cart pretzel... (Can you tell I like carbs!?) Mmmm.... My tummy will be full, that's for sure.

And so will my heart. All day I'll feel so loved by my friend Tracee who's arranged this whole wonderful gift.

I know I will. Because my heart already feels full.


I'mma tweet through this whole whirlwind adventure, so be sure to follow me on Twitter if you don't already.
