A Day Trip

Blog B-Day

It is the second year of The Girl From Connecticut! I am really excited to see what this new year brings not only for the blog but for life in general. I always reminisce about the day that I first started my blog, I wasn’t sure what I was doing, I had no idea how much work it would take and certainly did not know how much I would come to love and appreciate having a platform of my own.

I love the uniqueness and the diversity of the people, the energy, food, stores, and fashion. I really hope that at some point in my life I will be able to live there for a few years. Over the years I have been able to compile a list of places that I really enjoy going to and places I really like to see when I have the chance to visit. I am the type of person that orders the same meal when I go the restaurants that I love, will go to the same places and see the same things that I love and to me it doesn’t get old. I will always be amazed by the same things in NYC because sometimes you might find something new in old places.

A week or so ago, I went into the city so I decided to share some of the photos with you.
