Activity du jour: RUN to and through Penn Station!
I had such a busy Christmas Eve! I worked until 2pm and had to hurry to get a train at 2:40. I changed into my Christmas Eve party outfit...and I felt like I was in a movie as I ran down Broadway in heels, lugging my suitcase, waving goodbye to friends and yelling "Merry Christmas!"
Then tried to navigate the subways with my suitcase. Have you ever tried to lug a suitcase through the NYC Subway system?? It is a workout like no other!! Finally made it to Penn Station... which is a war zone on Christmas Eve!
I was RUNNING to catch my train...in heels... with my suitcase....dodging dozens of grandma's carrying tubes of wrapping paper and presents, kids wheeling suitcases, and no one looking where they're going.
I made it just in the nick of time! Collapsed into my seat and fell asleep. When I woke up, snow had softly started to fall.
When we pulled up to the Lancaster station stop, the platform was covered in snow. It was dark, quiet, and still... snow falling softly around me. Just breath taking. I couldn't help but squeal when I saw my little brother waiting for me. It was one of those moments you wish you could freeze in time.
There's something so magical about Christmas Eve. You believe in impossibilities, magic and miracles. Your heart makes wishes and secret prayers you never knew you longed for.
This Christmas, I hope all of your secret wishes and dreams come true.
Enjoy the beauty. Enjoy the magic. Believe in miracles.
