one more day...




new york can be a difficult place to describe. never has a city of so many paradoxes existed. there are moments i feel this indescribably deep love for it. and then moments and days and months where i can barely breathe here, where i want to run screaming from my own skin.

i've been hating the city of late. and so everyone asks me the same question, when was the last time you got away? when was the last time you went home? away? august to chicago. home? march. 

i'm overdue. 

all new yorkers know you must constantly flee this place in order to sustain and cultivate your love for it. 

tomorrow, if i can wake in time to make my flight, i'll wing my way toward that great state of texas. and there i'll spend near a week so that when i do return...well, the hope is i'll be a bit more palatable (for everyone, to everyone, including myself). 


what all this really means is just one more day to keep that wicked jaw in check. wish me luck.

Good luck. Spending time with family, at home, is such a virtuous thing. I hope you get the respite you need away from that big, big city of yours.

Oh this reminds me of how I'm yearning for a trip home back to Ontario, Canada.

Good luck :).

When you go home, you'll feel much rejuvenated I'm sure of it!! Enjoy your time in Texas.

Houston welcomes you back with open arms!! If you have a free second and would like a good cup of coffee and a chat, let me know! :)

I'm working on a move to NYC, by the way...wondering if I'll have the same love/hate relationship.

i bet you can't really beat the hugs from the family to pull you of that blue period.

enjoy every moment.

Have a great trip down! You know a good trip to Lupe's always makes things better! Ha, at least that is what I used to hope when coming home to Texas from CO! Oh and it is still pretty warm! uugghh!

I hope you enjoy your time back home in Texas and come back to NYC ready to take it by the horns and love it again. =) Safe travels to you!

I'm glad to read you are getting a break from the hustle bustle.

Enjoy your time of slowing down and being around those you love!

And then think about moving to NW. (but seriously.. do it. ) :)

Homecoming is one of the best feelings. I hope you enjoy your time at home xoxo

hope you have a great time at home, getting away every once in a while is good for the mind :)

I had a similar thing happen to me and Seattle lately. Totally burned out on the place and took a spur of the moment road trip home to visit the fam. Worked wonders, it was pure love therapy. Hope it works for you too!!!

Nothing feels more right than returning HOME... Enjoy the break Meg!

I think that is how everyone in big cities feels! I definitely feel that way about DC. I just came back from two GLORIOUS weeks away. I am happy that you get to leave for a bit. I hope your trip refreshes you.

Sometimes our family and our roots are what we all really need.
