To #MrNewYork,

I have dreamt about you for many years wishing for a moment like this. Where I can say Thank You for accepting me on my journey.

I knew a long time ago that you were what I needed in my life. A simple balance to the chaos. Some would say I chose you, but I would say we chose each other.¬†You saw the humility and passion in my hustle and how I wanted a seat at the table. Thank you for believing in me when I couldn’t believe in myself. When the pressure of the city got to me and country life looked appealing.

You held me in place, never letting me go and showing me all the pretty lights down 5th Ave. You sparked my interest early and since then I’ve been intrigued by you.

On this journey it would be an honor to thank you as one of the many contributors to this story in various ways.

So, I dedicate this section to the city that never sleeps even when I’m across the Hudson River.

Thank you for shining your lights.

Love Always,
Your Lighthouse
