Wow! It’s been awhile since my last post. So much has happened since then. I recently turned 50 years old last month. I still can’t believe it. 50 seems so old but at the same time I know it’s not. So for my birthday my daughter who lives in New York came home to surprise me. I was so surprised that when I opened the door I thought it was a mirage! I wasn’t expecting it at all. She had me on video looking kinda stupid. But of course after I realized it was real I jumped and screamed like crazy. Then we went out to dinner and I had another surprise. All my family and some of my friends were there. It was so wonderful to see everyone.
Then at the end of May I decided to go to North Carolina to go visit one of my very close friend. I haven’t seen her in a few years. We met when she was only 19 years old. She’s 40 now. North Carolina was beautiful. She took me to the beach. I’ve never seen the Atlantic Ocean before. I loved it. And people were so nice.
After a couple of days we drove to Washington DC and took the Amtrak to New York City to go see my daughter. She hasn’t seen her since she was a little kid.
New York was beautiful. My daughter played our tour guide. Since she lives in Brooklyn we took the ferry to NYC! The streets were pretty empty since it was Memorial Day. Perfect day to take the tour. We saw Wall Street, Stock Exchange, Trump Tower, The Twin Towers Memorial and Central Park. We walked over 21,000 steps. Then when we got back to her apartment my cousin was cooking up a feast. It was a great day!
I had an amazing birthday! And my friend and I made a pack that every year we are going to take a trip just the two of us. We get so busy with life that we forget to take care of ourselves. So next year we are going to Costa Rica!! It’s going to be amazing!!
