First for Everything

Bonjour! C'est Aurélie! Ça va? Oui, c'est affreux que je n'ai pas écrit.

I hate to say it, but I have been busy, and that's why I haven't written. Furthering my ballet career has taken a lot of time and energy. Last year was rough. Between school and ballet and an argument with Sabine that almost destroyed our years-long friendship, I just haven't had the energy to blog.

In October, I went to NYC for the first time and had a blast. I went for ballet-related reasons, I was fortunate enough that Inky and her moms let me stay with them.

I had to be touristy and get my picture taken in Rockefeller Center.

When I went, it was the time of year when Inky takes her holiday photos at the Lincoln Center fountain. I didn't have any holiday wear with me, but I did have several pictures taken by the fountain,

I took some photos with Inky. I don't really fit in since I'm in my casual clothes!

Lincoln Center is probably my favorite place in the city since it's home of the NYC Ballet. This shouldn't shock anybody. 

You have no idea how badly I'd love to see a ballet by the NYC Ballet!!!! I'm going to try to go one this summer. 

It was a beautiful day, so we took a walk through Central Park. It was so relaxing and much prettier than Lille's Citadelle park, I love the Citadelle, but I walk there all the time with Sabine.

It was a wonderful trip, and I hope to return and visit Inky again. I also would love to meet her friend Coral, who is as obsessed with ballet as I am.
