I’m an ocean girl. You probably can’t guess it since I’m such a New Yorker and love city life, but I’m happiest when I’m by the water. There’s something special about the ocean breeze, crashing waves, and slight smell of seaweed that brings a smile to my face.
While NYC is known for its tourist attractions, lately I’ve been gravitating towards the little details along the streets. Whether it be a wall, a mural, or a cute storefront, it’s amazing how much more you notice when you take a moment to look up and observe what’s around you.
It’s been just over a week since I’ve moved to NYC and I honestly can’t believe I live here. Waking up in the Big Apple every morning feels so surreal — seeing all the tourists in my neighborhood, who’ve come to New York from all over the world, really puts into perspective how special this place truly is.
