Just like she had planned, she graduated from college, talked a few friends into her corner, and she headed off to the city that never sleeps. She worked hard, prayed harder, and she landed a true dream job with Hearst Publications working for "O" the Oprah Magazine. The day she called home from her first day and she had had a meeting with Gayle King we knew all was right with the world! :)
It was so fun to listen to her tales of her time in the city. She truly soaked up every minute of it and took nothing for granted. She saw plays, spent weekends in the Hampton's, sat courtside (or in the lights...) at the US Open, spent lazy weekends in Central Park, made a trip or two (or TEN!) to the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty with weekend visitors and so many, many other amazing memories. And although I love the city, I am only a visitor. It was her home.
I threw this in for good measure...this was ALSO the view from her office. :) George, filming a commercial in her building. Swoon.
I love you, New York. I'm longing for you New York. It's up to you New You, New York!
