Feeling really nostalgic lately.

I spent some time this week going through pictures in my old phone and realized that I had lots of great photo memories of my life in NYC. I’ve had a new phone since my time in Virginia, so most of my new photos of the next chapter in my life here at Fort Belvoir.  I thought it would be nice to share some of reasons why I love the Big Apple so much and how it will always have a special place in my heart.

1. New Yorkers have pride

I’m a huge fan of Instagram, so if you’ve been following me for awhile, you’d recognize some. Of course now, most of my photos are of Virginia life and the cat. I invite you to check me out at: http://instagram.com/lilraerae86.
