Week in the Life - Saturday, July 30, 2011

Saturday's Details:

 *Self Portrait* - 30th Birthday

 *Directions* - Dad & David mapping out the directions to Nana's house from our hotel in Bethlehem, PA.

 *City Skyline* - getting into NYC.

 *My Family* - talking after the visitation at Schwille Funeral Home. The plan was to go check into our hotel, and then head back down to Glendale Diner a few blocks from the funeral home to have dinner. The memorial service would start at 7:00PM.

 *Rachel & Mom* - inside Glendale Diner

 *Food* - and a TON of it! They did nothing small in this joint!

 *Funeral Home* - outside the building after the memorial service for Nana - talking to family.

 *Map* - David figuring out which train to take down to Times Square. After we got back to the hotel that night around 10:00PM, we three decided to head into the city. We met up in the hotel lobby at 10:15PM; got a bunch of quarters; walked two blocks down to the bus stop; waiting for the bus for about 20 minutes; took the bus down to the subway station; got on the 7 train and took it down to Times Square. 

 *Sephora* - yes, it was still open at 11:50 at night! And it was packed! 

 *Times Square* - it was absolutely packed in Times Square. Wall to wall people. There was an insane amount of people down there. But, I can say that on my 30th birthday, I was in Times Square :-)

*Bus Ride* - catching the bus back to the stop near the hotel. There was a ton of people on the bus. I'm standing right behind the driver - standing room only! And more people still got on at this point!

I took over 75 pictures this day. This is only a small glimpse of this day. It was an emotionally exhausting day with the funeral service & seeing family that I hadn't seen in a very long day. We were busy from the minute we woke up until we dropped into bed around 2:30AM that morning after our jaunt into Manhattan. However, I am so very thankful that I was able to get up there to celebrate the life of my Nana. She was an incredible lady. She made the best pot roast. Ever. She always had a kiss & hug for me. She was a soft spoken lady with a big heart. She always sent a birthday card filled with X's & O's.  She was my Nana. I miss you, Dorothy May Moeller. xoxo

You came to New York!!! I'm sorry it was for such a sad occasion but I'm excited to see the fun Times Square pages/projects you will whip up.
