sixteen in new york city

I can't exactly express how I feel right now, and not only because I'm awful at expressing myself through my writing, but because I don't really know exactly how I feel. I turned sixteen today, and although in the grand scheme of things, sixteen is young, to me it seems so very old. I'm happy, nostalgic, sad, and grateful all at the same time, but how could I not be?

 I'm writing this post from our rental apartment in New York City. We arrived this morning, and although we got next to no sleep on our overnight flight from one coast to the other, we rallied, because dude, this place is incredible.

I'll have many more photos and stories to share soon. We're only on day one and there's already so much to write, but I'm off to get some sleep so tomorrow can be just as amazing as today.

xoxo - hope
