Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy, last year, really did do damage to downtown, and it is sad to see so many places that used to be the highlight of summer still closed so many months later, but at the same time, wonderful seeing so many people out by the water and knowing it is slowly making a come back. Just as NYC and New Yorkers always do, no matter what gets thrown our way!
After watching the sunset over the Brooklyn Bridge, which was truly magical, we met more people and wandered down towards Water St. and enjoyed more fun at a spot there. They had a photo booth, and anyone who knows me knows I love photo booths, especially, the unexpected pictures they produce! :)
As I look back on this year, since January, great, unexpected moments have fallen upon me, so to speak, or been placed in my path, and I am loving this whole not having a plan, but seeing where life takes me, and enjoying it along the way, since none of us knows what the future holds!
Plus, I have so much to look forward to, like my little sister having a baby next month...eeek!!! My birthday in August, which I normally don't look forward to, since getting a bit older, but now, I'm trying to embrace each year and be thankful to have another one to live! Friends are getting married and others engaged, one last night, in fact!
Not to mention the people who have come into my life, oh the happiness they can bring, even if only for the time being. Often your instincts feel things before you do, and who knows in the end, but they are telling me good things. I feel genuinely good about it, plus, it makes me smile, so, that in and of itself is a lovely thing in my book! :)
I hope you are all living in the moment and enjoying life as fully as possible! Remember that even in those lower, darker times, happier and brighter things are always ahead! Have a Wonderful Weekend and I'll be back with lots of quotes tomorrow! Yay! :)
