I can't wait! Tomorrow I leave for two days in New York City and I can't wait! I have been singing Alicia Keys' Empire State of Mind all evening!
Yes, I am going for work, but still... it's New York City! There is something about New York that is indescribable. As a teen, I wanted to become a yuppie and live there forever. Of course, now I'm a 41 year old Mom with three teens and quite happy to live in suburbia. And let's face it... with my
