Today we went to Australia's largest Urban Music Festival. Of course, I had to wear my "I (heart) NY" shirt. And, someone asked us today -- "Do you really love NY??" We quickly answered - "YES! We're from NY" Then the guy said "Well, just because you are from there doesn't mean you love it." We said "No, if you're from NY - you love it. There's no other place in the world like it."
No matter where I am in the world or where I work or what I wear: I will always be the skinny girl from Brooklyn rockin' her J's (Jordans). In recent years I've traded in my kicks for heels -- but my sneakers will always be in my closet. Adonis and I were both raised in the same neighborhood in Brooklyn: Bed-Stuy. We strongly believe that having the same up-bringing has set the same values in both of us. These are the values we bring into our relationship and will pass down to our children. Having the same values without having to teach each other the values we grew up with makes it so easy to be on the same page about a lot of things. I won't get too deep but it's so nice to be with someone who gets me without having to explain too much.
We both have the same T-Shirt and kicks -- maybe we'll take a photo another day like a ghetto twin couple lol.
