A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is my favorite book because it so beautifully captures the things in life I never want to lose sight of: innocence, honesty, and hope. And even though my favorite tree (pic 1) is not in Brooklyn, it's still in New York and it's all the same to a Midwesterner like me! I got to go to New York for a couple days for work, and these pictures are my favorite moments. There is nothing that can compare to the sights, sounds, and energy of New York - it's a place like no other, and it was so much fun to experience the magic firsthand!
