Recently, Lizzy shared a little about her hometown, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and today I'm going to tell you about where I grew up, Manhattan, NY. Most people think life in the city is busy and exciting, and they're right, it is. BUT, it's also regular too. The daily routine hasn't changed that much in my family, other than it's mostly focused around fixing up the Begonia House now. We stay home more than we did in the city, but my new address keeps me plenty busy. ;)
The coolest thing about living in a big city is that some of the most interesting places in the world are in your own backyard. My mom and Lizzy's mom have been good friends since Lizzy and I met in the 1st grade. On weekends, they'd pack us up to go on a book date. We'd go to the New York Public Library to pick out books, then on to Central Park for a picnic. The stories brought the magic and my dad always provided the delightful snacks.

Manhattan will always have a special place in my heart. It taught me so much about people and life in general. My new town seems quieter on the outside, but the Begonia House has lots of hidden secrets that will keep me guessing in the quiet country town of Ashpot, Connecticut.
