New York City || Travel

I have been blessed to be able to travel a lot in my almost 30 years of life. Last weekend I was able to add New York City to the long list of places I have been. 

I will be taking a group of my photo students to NYC in April for a visual arts tour through the city. We have a bigger goal in mind to compile our images into a book after the trip. I am so excited and cant wait for our adventure. I was a little apprehensive, since most of my students have been to the Big Apple numerous times and I had never. Thankfully the awesome organization we are going with sent me there on a free trip to be apart of a training weekend with many other teachers from around the country. We had so much fun learning about the city and all the amazing things that are there. 

I had the best time TAKING PHOTOS. For was so what I needed. I am so thankful for that.
