WEEK IN REVIEW: Saying Goodbye / by Love You Back Productions

As my time in New York comes to an end, I feel strongly that I'll miss this place. I built a little life here for myself and I am bracing myself for the culture shock of returning to New Orleans. 

Reminds me of the nostalgic feeling embodied in this Madonna song...

Last week I went to a fundraiser at The House of Yes, a party/event space just two blocks from my house. It was a circus themed line-up, and every performer was phenomenal. I was invited by my friend Ana, who lives in New York. In the middle of the show, Ana and I both turned to each other and agreed: this is why New York is amazing. 

Below are gifs from some of the more special moments of the show.

Here's the biggest news of the week: Julia is MOVING TO MID CITY! Not just Mid City, but only 3 blocks away from me.

My partner Seth had a vacancy in the house he owns next door, so it was a no-brainer; Julia and her partner Nik are moving in. 

It's been a long time coming. Now we'll be able to walk to on another's houses, which makes for a much easier work week. Our lives as friends and business partners are overlapping--kind of like that solar eclipse we had a few days ago. 

I ended up watching the eclipse from the real estate office where I work in New York. I was so deep into my work that I almost forgot it was happening. A ton of people in my office gathered around and used the one pair of special eclipse watching sunglasses. I don't have my own pic to post, but it looked pretty much like this, except in New York:

Julia and I are in the midst of launching a new wedding website, which we've been tweaking for the past week.
