Today I’ll be getting on a plane in just a few hours and flying 10 hours from Hawaii to NYC. Many people have asked if I’m excited about my trip, and the answer is...well, um, not yet, but I’m sure I will be once I’m on the plane!
I tend to not get excited for big trips like this because it’s such a huge shift to be in Hawaii one afternoon, and in a totally opposite environment the next morning- kind of shocking to my whole being. But, I know I will have an amazing time with my family and I’m definitely looking forward to spending time with family and close friends!
On a more personal note, the reason I’m going back to NYC for 2 weeks is to sort through all my stuff as my parents are moving from my childhood and life-long apartment that they’ve been in for nearly 30 years out to the West Coast. This is pretty major for me (and all of us), as NYC has been my home base ever since I was born in Mount Sinai hospital on the Upper East Side of Manhattan!
The true impact of this move hasn’t really hit me yet, but I’m sure it will over the next few weeks...stay tuned!
Here’s a photo of me right outside our apartment in NYC, back in my bunhead days:
