Let's Hear It For New York

I'm going to New York City tomorrow. Ahhhhh! 

I just bought my plane ticket a few days ago even though I have known I wanted to go on this particular weekend for a couple months now. You see, I'm going to BlogHer, a blogging/social media conference. I'm going to learn things about blogging and social media. I'm going to see old friends and make new ones. I'm going to hopefully run into a celebrity or two. I'm going because I love New York City and haven't been in over a decade. I'm going because I'm getting a little award. Yup, I'm getting an award. The award is not for my writing or any of the cool ass pictures I've been taking with my fancy new camera. Nope this award is for dancing in my kitchen. Pretty cool, right?

One of my Instagram videos of me dancing in my kitchen was nomiated in the Short Form Video Category to receive a Voice of the Year award and it won.  So I have to go, right? I mean it's not everyday, or any day, that I get an award.

(This is the award-winning video!)





So I booked the cheapest flight, the kind where you don't get even a drink of water without an extra charge. And I am Googling "free things to do in NYC" and hoping for good weather so I can just hang out in Central Park for the six hours before the conference starts. Because I've been doing a lot of traveling lately and I'm pretty broke. But who cares, because I'm going to New York City.

I mean I'll be in New York, the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do. Okay, I know I'm sounding just like the lyrics to Jay Z and Alicia Keys' song Empire State of Mind.  And so what?! I'm going to be singing it while I twirl and dance through town. I mean I heard those streets will make you feel brand new and that the lights will inspire you. 

I'm ready to be inspired. And I plan on dancing my way through the Big Apple and having a blast. I can't wait!!!!
