Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Last full day in NYC

Saturday was our last full day in NYC, so we still had a lot to fit in. We went to Battery Park and saw the Statue of Liberty first thing. There was a super long line, so we opted not to wait for the boat, we just took pictures from land. We also went by Wall street and took some pictures with the bull after rubbing his horns for good luck!

Instead of waiting in line, we went by Ground Zero and to the World Trade Center Museum. It was a really small museum, but definitely heart wrenching! A quote on the wall of the museum read, "Two bullets ran into the World Trade Center that day, and one love came out." It was truly amazing reliving that day and remembering back to the week/months following when we really saw America bind together, no matter who you were!

After that, Steve and I hit up Canal Street for more shopping while everyone else went back to catch a boat for the Statue of Liberty (I have my priorities straight). =)

That night we met up for a wonderful dinner at one of my all time favorite restaurants Tavern on the Green. It is a beautiful place and the food is delicious! We had a great meal together, a wonderful ending to a great week in the big city!
