i began this space when i fell in love with this place, this urban lifestyle i had always dreamed of.  coming from "small town america" in the midwest my sights were set on chicago.  it's a city but it's clean.  it's a city but the people are nice and midwestern-y.  but life had a different plan and sent me to that other big city, new york city .  what i first thought was dirty, turned out to be spectacular.  the people i thought were mean weren't given a chance.  my skin is thicker, my visions are wider, my dreams are bigger. 

i was 22 and i lived above an animal hospital with a stranger on a busy street with a homeless man always steps from my door.  i dreamed of having a stoop, being in one of those turn-of-the-century buildings that was just for living, living the city life.  now we have it.  a stoop, a turn-of-the-century historic home, and that city life i dreamed of.  we've planted our roots in downtown jersey city , a place that looks like brooklyn, but feels like home.  it's a place that's minutes from manhattan, but feels like home. a place filled with new experiences and unlimited opportunity, but feels like home.
