Dikla is wearing: Skirt: & Other Stories Boots: Vince Camuto
Hello from the top of one of New York’s staple tourist spots – The Brooklyn Bridge- Isn’t it just so photogenic?! I love exploring new places and although I was in the area of the Brooklyn Bridge a bunch of times, I never actually took the time to walk ON the bridge. My friend, Dikla (from the blog Girl Plus Two) who lives in NY for years joined me and we spent a Friday morning together just girls, no kids tagging along (and there are 6 kids between the both of us!! no joke).
Dikla and I connected on Instagram months ago while I was still living in Israel, we both have 3 kids, two boys and a girl exactly the same ages, (how crazy is that?!) and we just clicked right away and stayed in touch since then. Little did I know, a few months later we would be standing together in NY hanging out like we know each other for years. Stepping out of my comfort zone and leaving everything- my country I love so much, my home, my friends and my whole family and moving to anther country is no joke, especially with little kids. I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t. We all get lonely from time to time, It makes a huge difference when you have that someone who is like minded, who understands where you came from, speaks the same language as you do and can just be there when things get overwhelming. Life’s too short to stay in one place, literally and metaphorically, I love trying out new things and new places but it always helps to have a supportive system around you. Today I am grateful for this rad technology surrounding us, especially this little app called Instagram if not for that I’m not sure we would have ever crossed path but I am so happy we did! xx,
