It is amazing to have NYC as my hometown! I love exploring the hidden treasures the city has to offer. Staten Island for the day was the perfect escape. From the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden to the stained glass at Main Hall I was transported around the world. A day long exploration at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden was just the trip I needed during the summer heat of NYC!

Lincoln, Nebraska

Lincoln, Nebraska was full of energy and vibrancy during my visit! From the college students moving back in to visitors enjoying the local food, crafts and wine, Lincoln’s charm and character shone through my time around the town. My favorite places included the Sheldon Museum of Art on the campus of University of Nebraska at Lincoln and the Sunken Gardens. Included are pictures from my favorite places during my visit:
