I talk a lot about what’s going on in my life here, but I’ve realized that I’m leaving out a huge component – my job. Not only am I married to a soldier, I have a career that I’m building. Balancing my career and military life is something I’ve been juggling for years now. I started doing so when I decided to date my soldier.
I thought I would dedicate the next coming Wednesdays for y’all to get a sneak peek at my life as a working girl in the City. Just like millions of other New Yorkers, I take the subway to work everyday, work in a high rise building and pretty much walk everywhere. Sometimes, I feel like I take things for granted, especially that I get to be in NYC everyday. I thought I should start soaking it all in because when my soldier gets back, things will be different.
My office is pretty much centrally located on the island of Manhattan. It’s in what we call the Flatiron District and Gramercy area. I just take one train down from my apartment in Queens. There is always a lot going on by my office, I love it!
After work last Friday, I took a quick walk to the Herald Square area to run an errand. As I was walking north on Sixth Avenue, I had a nice view of the Empire State Building.

Did you know that in the evening the Empire State Building shines different color lights based on a sponsor or holiday? The lights that will shine tonight are in honor of the PGA Tour and FedExCup Playoffs (blue, white, blue). FYI, for September 11, they will shine red, white, blue. You can check out the schedule here.
