Dear I UnHeart New York,


Today I don't heart New York.
Today I don't want to be here anymore.
Today I don't want to deal with subways or busy streets or loud noises or pungent smells that attack my olfactories.

Today I want to turn my car around and drive back to Sugarhouse.
Today I want to end this vacation in NY and go home.
Today I want Blue Plate for dinner and the sounds of crickets when I fall asleep.
Today I want to be snuggled up on my SpringAir pillow top in Salt Lake City, right where I belong.

Right where I had friends.
Right where I had a gym membership.
Right where I had free time.
Right where I want to be right now.

Or maybe I'll just heart Iraq today. And maybe you'll hear why tomorrow.

I have those days too. Then something wonderful happens and I forget why this city drives me so crazy. It really is a love/hate relationship- welcome to becoming a "true" New Yorker!

Funny story -- I had an "I un-heart AZ" day yesterday and all I wanted was to be back in the city. The grass is greener on the other side -- we should switch lives every few weekends, east coast/west coast. I totally know what you mean though. Moving somewhere new is hard!!

Noelle, I must say I miss your early morning honks. It was the reminder I needed to inform me that my final snooze had gone off 10 minutes prior and I needed to get my rear in gear. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. p.s. I love reading your blog. My slow days of the floral indsutry thank you for your blogging dedication. love you,
Nat

Hi Noelle! You don't know me, but a friend sent me to your blog... seems we have a lot in common. Anyway, hi from your NYC neighbor to the south. And btw, I un-heart NYC today too.

Can't wait to hear why you heart Iraq. Sorry about this. It's very odd for someone to not love NY in September so I hope the winter doesn't make you want to leave. New York hearts you. At least, we do.

I know how you feel sometimes. I will come cook you sausages and you will love it again.

Oh I hear ya. Most days are good. The day we caught 5 mice = bad day. Actually that was the worst day ever. Shudder.
