5 years ago today I moved from Alabama to New York City. Coincidentally, this is my 500th blog post. While semi-unrelated (I lived in the city a couple years before starting my blog) they are pretty exciting milestones for me.
While looking through some photos of the last five years, I came across some images taken from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade when I lived in my first apartment in the neighborhood. (Another noteworthy 5 is how many apartments I've lived in! Ha!) Brooklyn Bridge Park was just in its infancy at the time, so the waterfront looks pretty bleak.
Fast forward several years and it's a gorgeous park (though still under construction) where I spend many a summer weekend (even though I live quite a few neighborhoods away now). This city changes daily and I do my best to keep up, evolving and hopefully improving along with it.
I'm not sure how much longer I will live here (2-3 years? 10? Forever?!?!??) but the adventure has been outstanding and I am so happy I have his platform to record and share it. 500 more posts? I sure hope so! As always, thanks for reading!!!
[The last couple photos are from the BBP Pop-Up Pool where Kurt and I had a drink a couple weekends ago. Five years ago I could have not even fathomed sitting in that spot with my toes in the sand having a beer. How times change!]
