So, do you have a favorite city? Or maybe I should ask this first…..are you a city person? I always find it interesting how people subscribe to different ways of living. Some loving the hustle and bustle of the city while others can’t seem to survive with out large amounts of space and rolling green hills. As for me, I love both. I call myself an inbetweener, because I’m usually kind of in the middle on a lot of things, including the whole city vs. country living. In my perfect world I’d have both. A beautiful big white home in the country and a modern apartment in the city. There is just something about being in the city that makes me feel alive and totally energized. Inspiration doesn’t seem to be so hard to come by, in fact, it’s more like inspiration overload. But the truth is, I don’t think I could do city life 7 days a week with a brood like mine. And I do like wide open spaces. I love bright blue skies with no end in sight and I love, and long for, a slower pace of life. What about you?
And back to the original question, what is your favorite city in all of the world? And why do you love it so? Chicago has my heart because it is home. It’s skyline can’t be beat, it’s clean, has beautiful greenery and the food is always good. But if I had my pick of cities to get lost in, it’s always a toss up of Paris or London for me.
And speaking of cities….I’m off for a weekend in NYC for the weekend. Mr. la la and I just rang in 15 years and are headed to the New York to celebrate. I’ve only been twice before and I’m hoping to fall more in love with this city on this visit. Do you have any recommendations? Anything we must see or do?
