An Answer

As I type this, I'm sitting on my couch facing my former living, now packing station, listening to the rain pour down outside. Lola's curled up beside me, slightly damp as we just got caught in the aforementioned rainstorm, and I'm trying to enjoy every last second I have with her before I leave her in California with her Tante Jennifer, Uncle Chris and Cousin Sofie. May has been a complete whirlwind of activity. Selling, packing, frantically trying to find someone to take over my lease (WHICH, btw, I did! HOORAY!!!), and saying goodbye. And it's only May 14! I can't even remember the last time I was this productive...

I often still have to pinch myself to remember that this isn't a dream. This is not a dream, in fact, it's an answer. An answer to my prayers that God has delivered in one of the best wrapped packages I've ever seen. Everything is falling into place, and I've never felt more sure about anything in my life. I am SO happy.

I officially leave for NYC on June 1. As for the latter half of May, I'll be doing more packing and selling, spending some time in California, and indulging in beaucoup de farewell festivities. My final night in Austin will be spent at this incredible new cinema watching this incredible flick with my bestie. C'est parfait, non?

I'm so excited for your grand adventure! You will LOVE living in Manhattan. I sure did when I was your age many years ago. And like you, I had to find a home for my beloved dog Daisy before moving to NYC. It all works out.

When I look back over my life, I can't even imagine that I wouldn't have lived in NYC in my 20's.

I'm so thrilled for you and can't wait to hear about your adventures in the Big Apple! There is no place like New York City!

xoxo, Silky
