New York City, Baby! (Bethenny Doesn’t Know Who The Hell I Am)

A Grace Full Life

So the topic of last week’s reblog dealt with my social anxiety and making excuses for not attending a Bethenny Frankel meet and greet in Chicago (how I ever got on that invite list is still a mystery), then finding out that my friend Jennifer won an all-expenses-paid trip for two to New York City, which she kindly invited me along. This was such an honor and I was very excited but the driving emotion, at the time, which Ifeltshameful about, was that I was horribly anxious about going. I feel comfortable sharing this now but back then, I would have felt ungracious saying that.

I flew to New York City with my friend Jen last week and boy are my arms tired, as my dad would say.
A few months ago, I wrote about how my friend won a trip to see…

Why I Will Never Be Famous

A Grace Full Life

The next three Friday’s will be a trilogy of posts about a trip my friend Jen won to New York City to visit the Bethenny Frankel show, which is now no longer a show. If you’ve never heard of her just know that she began her career as a reality star on the Real Housewives of New York City and now is the creator of the SkinnyGirl brand. 
I have anxiety and I talk about it freely now on this blog and in my life but at this time, I wasn’t really talking about it openly.

The list is long and mighty.
As to why I will never be famous.
For one, I don’t like high heels.
Or sushi.
And I definitely don’t own a Vespa.

When you have a family you dearly love that lives far, far away, you will do anything, ANYTHING to see them.
You will brave busy, crowded airports.
You will drive hundreds of miles on lonesome stretches of road.
You will put up with rain, snow, sleet, locusts, and truck stop bathrooms to feel their hug or hear their voice.
This has been our life for the past eight years since my parents were transferred, first to Peoria, Illinois, (3 hours away), then to Chattanooga, Tnessesse (11 hours away).

Desperate to see each other, we all have done everything we can to make sure we get time together. It wasn’t until this past…
