Meeting family in the Bronx

Couldn’t come to New York without visiting family! The woman is my grandma’s sister and the man is her husband. I never met them in a way that I could actually remember it, the last time we saw each other is was 3 or 4 years old. Now, 20 years later, I went to the Bronx where they have been living for the past 45 years. Three stories high, these sweet 80 year old people live in a small but oh so cute apartment. Honestly it instantly felt like coming home. The warm family love, the Italian food (he is Italian) and the Dutch words between the English sentences my sisters grandma said to her husband; I had the time of my life. She felt like my grandma too, almost as much as my real grandma. I felt a instant connection like the one I have with her sister. They cooked a delicious meal for us which we enjoyed together, had a lot to talk about and FaceTimed with my mom and dad back home. After the food we went into the neighborhood to take some cool shots (unfortunately went the wrong way but still super nice pics) and later they brought us back to the hotel in the center of NY. Thank so much <3

Beach

This morning we got out of bed early (well at least it was early for us), went to Subway to get a sandwich and then drove off to the beach. We ate the sandwich in the car and after we had a lovely beachwalk. The beach makes me feel so calm, I love it. Really hope to live on or very near the beach one day. Dreams..
