One year in the blogging world!!! - CRAFT STEAK - September 11th

OMG - I am about done with one of my biggest goals this year for me - and let me tell you - I FEEL PRETTY AMAZING. Now, I would tell you what that goal is, but I don't want to jinx the possibilities so you all have to wait. However, it is pulling at me to just tell you....but alas I cannot say a word. lol.

So last night Michael Freeman and myself went to CRAFT STEAK on 15th street and 10th Avenue. One of the coolest things about this restaurant is they have two different areas to sit. I personally like to call it the Rich Mans section and the Cheap Mans section. And as much as I like to eat out it is important that I am not always eating in the Rich Mans section (as we are in a depression - ya'll) - So Michael and I sat in the Cheap Mans section (upfront). And like always I LOVED IT, seriously, I love eating there because I feel like I am eating at TOP CHEF or something similar - the food, even the appetizers are that the company I was with wasn't half bad either. So if you haven't ventured over to that area of NYC (which is right near the new HIGHLINE (also a sight to see)) then I highly recommend it.

One year ago today, or at least around this time of year, I began writing on this blog and I have to tell you what - life has gotten better and better. I am not going to say that it is the blog that has answered all my questions or offered doorways to better things, however, for some reason it has offered me my own way of healing. And that is important to me.

Eight years ago on this date I was in Las Vegas, NV and was awoken to the fear of our reality that is September 11, 2001. I was confused - blindsighted - hurt - fearful - scared and it was everything I never imagined possible was possible and did happen. The memories still haunt me to remember and I believe will continue to haunt everyone who is reminded of where they were at when they heard the news.

Where were you on September 11, 2001 and how did you feel?

Thank you for reading - for somewhat listening to my ups and downs of this last year - I have appreciated your kind support - your arguments - disagreements - opinions. They have all been a valuable part of this blog. THANK YOU!

It's always fun to read your posts and see how you're doing and what you're up to!
As for this day 8 years ago....I was in bed and got a call from my mom, then turned on the TV and watched in horror as the second plane hit. It was SO surreal and I didn't believe it could be happening. I was in a sort of stupor and felt weird for days. It's all still so vivid in my mind. I cried and cried....and felt true intense pain for those who lost loved ones and for those who were there helping when all went down. I wish things like that didn't happen and I hope they don't happen again and yet I know without a doubt that we have only seen the beginning...
