Oh yes, a second Thanksgiving celebrated in NYC. Since living here has more than its share of ups and downs, I thought I'd compile a list of all the particularly NY things I'm thankful for.

Picking my produce up on the daily. Street side vendors make this super convenient, affordable, and always fresh.

The subway. It's a love/loathe situation, but sometimes it's great to be able to completely zone out on the morning commute or late night bender. No longer worrying about a DD!

My sister. As much as we fight, I don't think I would have made it as long here trying to "follow my dream" or whatever it is I'm doing. She's an amazing support system. (These are our matching holiday feet).

Vegan/vegetarian restaurants & menus. Whether it's a chain restaurant or locally owned cafe, there are plenty of options, and they are almost always marked on the menu. I forget how "troublesome" vegetarian eating is back home (and the attitudes of the people there don't help).

Holiday windows. Fantastic displays of imagination. I'm especially excited about seeing the Bergdorf's ones IRL. I think I like the sparkly sailor best.

These pictures were taken in the new home I'm moving into. (I told you I have lots of news!) I say home because it's a three-story brownstone, 5 bedrooms, 1 full bath and two half baths. It's a beautiful Victorian fixer-upper (as you can tell by the stairs). I cannot wait to get started.

*It's okay now.
