CAUTION: Most of these sentences will end in an exclamation point due to my excitement!
After we unpacked, we took our hungry selves to Panera, delving into some soup and sandwiches. Then after our bellies were warmed with coffee and full with food, we marched up 7th and headed to LUSH. It was my moms first time at Lush and she loved it! She even got me goodies! (She is so good to me) SOme more shopping was done and mom found a new purse! (She is so stylish!) Then tired from all the walking we took our treasures and headed back to FIT to my dorm. We spent the next two hours watching a movie just relaxing on my bed together. That may have been my favorite moment of the day. Having my mom all to myself, nothing in NYC to distract us. We were just laughing together and talking and it really hit me how much I had missed her. No one understands me as much as my mom. She is the most beautiful, giving, loving, kindest, honest, funniest person I know. Those two hours I wish I could've frozen and turned them into twenty. Alas, New York never stops so neither must we. After resting we trekked to the high line where she got to see the empire state building from a tenth avenue view. On 20th Street we discovered the BEST hot chocolate we have ever had in our entire lives. It was melted pieces of shaved chocolate steamed into percolated milk. We decided we will definitely have to go back to that place! They were selling not only chocolate but our other love as well, coffee! Near the fabulous coffee/chocolate heaven was Madison Square Eats! There we got some sliders for dinner, very artisan!
Sadly all great things must end at some point and we had to walk back to the dorm knowing mom had to leave soon. I was okay until I put her in the Taxi. At that moment I realized how much I missed my mom and how sometimes I don't want to be an adult, sometimes I don't want to be strong all of the time, and sometimes I need my mom. I really needed her this weekend and I am so thankful she came down.
In my eyes my mother is the greatest female in the world. I hope that I can be half the person she is when I am older. I have so much fun with her and I cherish our time together. I never realized how valuable that time is. Love you momma, see you for Thanksgiving. Goodnight New York, xoxo
