Over the last two weeks we have transitioned from our tiny apartment in New York City to our large(r) house in the suburbs of North Carolina. I miss NYC but I’m also glad to be back in NC. Throughout our three-month visit in NYC, I’ve thought long and hard about what I like about both places. Here’s what I learned:
What I love about NYC:
1.) Everything in walking distance – life at your fingertips
2.) Amazing variety of people, languages and cultures
3.) Energy and entertainment – This City TRULY does not sleep – dinosaur bones, singers in subways, Lion King, Rangers game, Yankees game, Penn Station at 1 am!
What I love about the suburbs (and our “big” house):
1.) Rooms and backyards – extra space is great with a toddler and opening the back door to go out and play is VERY convenient
2.) Open windows = clean air and quiet, nature sounds
3.) Big kitchen – I enjoy cooking in (though not cleaning) my big kitchen – Love our counters for cookies and crafts.
Do you live in a city, suburb, or something in between? What do you like about where you live?
If you could go anywhere for 3 months (or more), where would you go?
