That Moment

My friend, Shannon, took this photo of me in August.  I was in New York City for BlogHer.  I was outside photographing the line for SocialLuxe Lounge.  I had been up at least twenty hours, flown a red eye, ran around NYC like a crazy woman, and was just starting a busy night.

It was my first time in New York, and it was a whirlwind weekend.  I wish I would have taken more time to enjoy it.  As I was standing here, in the middle of the street, I was seeing friends and faces that I had not seen for over a year, since BlogHer09′.  I could hear the blaring horns and the traffic behind me.  It was amazing being in such a big city.

I hope that I can take a trip to NYC again someday, and enjoy it a little bit more.

I currently have this photo as my “About”, because it really says so much about me.  I’m wearing a headband, holding a camera, wearing purple, and I had fabulous hair that day.

I’m writing this post for #Reverb10

December 3 – Moment.

Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

NYC really is great, which is why I moved here from the "country" life of Vermont in 2008. Horns are now my background white noise. :) The photo up above is what made me decide you were someone I wanted to read. Funny how quickly we make decisions.

I <3 this picture... and I wouldnt look half that good if I had been up for 24 hours. Mostly because I wouldnt still be up- I would be passed out on the street somewhere from lack of sleep :)

I passed out eventually. I almost fell asleep on a couch at a party that night. I was exhausted.

Way to rock a headband, Julie! The big city vibe is unbelievable, isn't it?

I love this photo of you. Every time I look at it, I think it looks like a still from CSI: . You look amazing and no one would ever know you had been up for so long. Love it!!

I wish I looked that good when I stay up for 24 hours! You have that "I'm looking for my hotel" look...

What? Up for 24 hours? You just talked me out of a Blogher conference. But really, you do look great in the picture 24 hours or not.

LOL, I worked up until the night I left. I was low on vacation time and trying to save hours. I will never fly red eye the day of an event ever again. I was dying.

You forgot to mention the camera strap. Also perfectly "Julie". Yes, your hair does look gorgeous, but you certainly don't look like you've been up for 24h.

Yes, my lovely camera strap. I love it....It is amazing what a shower and make-up can do.
