You’ll Be My Porch Swing Memories

Arts Inspiration New York

Hey, New York. It’s me again – The Tiny Dancer. We’ve had another six months together, which now puts me at 2.5 years living here. As you know, I do a fun recap every six months so that one day when I’m sitting on a porch swing with a glass of [...]
