We went to bed early last night so we missed the big news. What a long and painful journey it's been. It's been nearly a decade, but I have to say that the 9/11 attack has changed the way we live here in New York. I always feel vulnerable. I always worry when my husband goes out to work. I'm always scared about potential attacks on mass transit, bridges and tunnels, tourist sites...

Do you remember the botched car bomb attack in Times Square last year? The SUV was parked outside the Viacom building. We were directly across the street for a photoshoot. Thankfully, we left an hour before the madness ensued. And thankfully, the bomb did not go off.

In NYC, it's stressful always being on edge, on alert... but I'm glad yesterday's operation brings some sort of peace and closure. I'm thinking about all the victims down at Ground Zero today... may you all finally rest in peace.


  1. What an adorable card! I am a New Yorker as well. More upstate than the city. I can remember it like yesterday. Here's to wishing you positive thoughts and a little less worry!

  2. hi kryssi! love your card--so much dimension! kim's new stamps are awesome!

  3. Oh Kryssi, that card is so sweet! I Love it!

    And, I can only imagine what it must be like living there. A crazy guy flew a plane into an office building here in Austin, and we drive past it a bunch. No where near the scale or the sadness as only the piolet was killed. But makes you realize that you just never know what will happen.

    Sending big big hugs to you --> HUGS!!!!!
