Happy Tuesday, Bogland!
Needless to say, life has been quite hectic lately as we prepare for The Knickerbocker, a legendary New York City landmark, to be reborn at the crossroads of the world. It will open its doors for the first time since John Jacob Astor opened it in 1906 and having closed in 1921 after his death on the Titanic.
In other news, as some of you may have seen, a blizzard swept over the Northeast coast Monday evening well into today, which made for an early dismissal from work at noon on Monday and snow day off today.
Prior to them shutting down NYC transportation and putting the mandatory curfew into effect, Marvelous Merri, a co-worker who has quickly become a forever friend, and I took to Times Square and ran around like giddy children.
There was no shortage of laughing, dancing, singing, goofiness and all around good times. Above all else, it is hard to put into words how nice it was to leave life at the door, so to speak, and simply forget responsibilities, troubles, anxieties and more for a bit.
Heading to bed early tonight, as it is back to business and real life tomorrow. Hope all of you on the east coast survived the storm. I'd love to hear your stories and see your pictures in the comments below.
I'll try to be back here more frequently as soon as I can. Thank you in advance for your patience and sticking with me over the years. Big hugs!
