52 IN 2014 • WEEK 14

Monday, May 12, 2014


Our time in Washington D.C. is coming to an end, so I've been trying to prepare you for what's to come. I've been talking with you about what you might expect to see in New York City and telling you stories of the times I've visited. We talk about the tall buildings and all the people and cars, but mostly we talk about riding the subway. You are a public transit enthusiast! We borrowed this book from the library and I've come in to find you sleeping with it during your naps over the last few days. We've also been talking a lot about having our own house again and you get giddy with excitement each time I mention it! It impressed me that you even understood the concept of having a home together. You've been chatting nonstop about the things you 'membah' (remember) - 'membah dose chickies in dat backyard, Mama? membah Ezra?' We're all still a little homesick for New Mexico - I think we always will be. It's such a magical place that I hope you never forget. I hope it will always be a part of who you are. I hope you'll always have a little New Mexico in your soul like Mama and Papa do. As much as we miss our life back in Albuquerque, we're also all really excited about the adventures we're bound to have in New York City. This is the biggest thing I've ever done in my life besides marrying your Papa and having you, of course. I have a feeling it's going to change the course of our lives for the better.

'I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my entire life and
I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing that I wanted to do.'

'Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant.
It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.'

'One can't paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.'

- Georgia O'Keeffe
