I'm wearing the new little black dress, which roomie has convinced me does not make me look like a bubble.
And the black boots.
I will feel very New York. Which is rare for me.
Because I'm not New York. I'm California with a touch of the Midwest. But I am here and life is not glamorous.
I'm jeans and a tee at lunch with a wonderful friend. I'm the girl who constantly loses her keys and who chooses ice cream and conversation with a great friend over the meat market downtown. I'm a girl who cries hard and feels a lot. Who gets attached and feels loss deeply.
I was the strong willed two year old with the Shirley Temple curls. I'm the girl who still has that spirit in me.
I'm the palm trees and the 2/3 train. I'm San Francisco and Lexington Ave.
I'm entirely too mean to myself, too hard on myself, too unforgiving.
I'm the jeans and the little black dress.
Oh, and the boots too.
