New York

You’ve heard it before, that NYC is the greatest city in the world—and it is! Streets and skyscrapers booming with noise, talent, passion, and a sense of humor; what more could we ask for? Everything this city has to offer is right in our backyard, a skip and a step is all it takes to explore each borough and the vibrant cultures it has to share. We are the home of self starters, fast walkers, and a delicious slice of pizza! I encourage my kids to keep exploring, especially their own turf that is NYC, because it’s filled with entertainment and education. We definitely get a full serving of all four seasons here, but in the blink of an eye, we continue to watch this sleepless city grow and shine bright!

I don’t know if any of us is ever truly ready for that.  However, I do think this wonderful time of the year is not only for the merriment of our children but also for us. Losing our cool over the latest gifts, and trying to figure out which family guests…

We were invited for a press preview, and spent the day previewing, shopping, and indulging in festivities for the grand opening benefit. Along with…
