I've loved working on this returned missionary's book (almost done!), compiling her photos and emails home. Her emails were filled with positivity and humor throughout her time in New York. ❤
Here's an excerpt--
"When riding on the subway this week, I just felt an overwhelming love and appreciation for New York City. This place has truly become so beautiful to me. I love the graffiti on the buildings, I love riding the subway and seeing different cultures and streets and people, I love that everyone walks everywhere, I love that people sacrifice everything to come to this place and start a new life, I love that everyone on the subway refuses to talk to each other but are actually all really nice, I love the different restaurants, I love the parks, I love that the people here are hard workers, I love that in New York City dreams really do come true! I even kind of love the trash piled on the streets.... Okay, maybe that’s going too far."
