* see you later, NYC *

...and just like that, the New York adventure is over {for now!}. We've been living for the last two years in beautiful Brooklyn Heights, which has been a dream come true for me on so many levels. Although I'm in lust with all corners of the city, sometimes I craved the sensation of carving out my own village in the city {I loved living in Barnes in West London and Crystal Palace in South East London for the same reason} and the neighborhood vibe of the Heights definitely gave me that. It's not cool like other parts of Brooklyn, its not buzzy like SoHo or Gramercy, but it's been a wonderful place to call home. We will miss the window boxes, the dog-obsessed neighbors, the cute cafes, the wander into Dumbo and the constant debate about where to get the best pizza. We will miss our friends and discovering the hidden gems of the city. 

So for now its see you later to NYC. Thanks for having us. You've been a challenging, exhilarating, fascinating, blooming' grubby place to live and we wouldn't have changed a thing. Next stop...Puerto Rico!
