Living in New York




Ok at first we were mesmerized by the beauty of the green surrounding us. The richnes of unique character lingering in each building and bridge we passed. But now, truth be told, it's starting to feel like I'm in a whole different country. People really do have accents- honest to goodness- New Yo-kah accents. So it's a like a different language. They don't really speak unless spoken to and every male out here is named "Joey".

So basically we like it, but have a lot to get used to. The town we live in is very quaint. It has a cute little city center complete with clock tower in front of the train station where Daddy commutes from each day- just a five minute walk from our apartment. We have the ultimate compromise for New York, living in the suburbs and working in the city with a nice airconditioned 30 minute train ride to Time Square. We are slowly collecting furniture and unpacking while trying to meet new friends and adjust. The apartment we found is very conveniently located, has nice upgrades inside like granite countertips and stainless steel appliances and it reminds me a little of the building ithe characters from "How I met your Mother" live in with two retail spaces below us a restaurant/bar Pizza place.

We miss all of our friends and family though and want to hear all about life on the west coast.

Yay, Cassie! We're so glad we got to see you guys in your new place...and I do think your little town is cute. Hopefully things are still falling into place and you'll be in a good routine with your boys soon!
