Being back home for the summer is really refreshing. Not only do I get a little break from the madness and craziness (yet loveliness) that is New York City, but I also get to spend some time with my family… and my dog. Being back in suburbia is quite lovely, the weather is beautiful, its nice having a car (not so nice dealing with the crazy gas prices), and nice to see old friends. Home cooked meals, sleeping in my own bed, watching my favorite baseball team – are definitely a plus. As much as I miss NYC, as they say, there’s no place like home!
