Good-bye Paris, Hello NYC!

Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end. I have been too nostalgic to Americanize my blog even though I’ve been home for several months now, but as I look towards a summer in Long Island, only 20 minutes from the heart of New York City, I realize that a new chapter – or blog post, if you will – is being written in my life. So time to update.

Au revoir, Paris!!!!

Okay, so…if you’d be so kind as to glance to the upper right hand corner of the blog, you will notice that I’ve changed “The Bucket List” to “The Bucket List: NYC”. Yes, time to move on. I will continue to strive for a vie en rose, but it’s time to take on new adventures! Since I am so unfamiliar with the city, I suppose I’ll send this question out into the world wide web: what should I do in NYC? I have a few key items to get to, but what else should I take on? Any good hang-outs I should hit up? Help me out here, people…it’s a jungle out there.
