NaBloPoMo Writing Prompt: Describe your favorite place.
Living in New York City, you’d think it would be easy to come up with my favorite place! There are certainly a lot of places I like, such as a:
- great museum
- really nice hotel room
- luxurious spa
- tea salon or cafe
- wine bar
What I realized is that it’s not the specific place that’s most important to me–it’s the feeling and the atmosphere I get from being in a place. The feeling that I most treasure is “cozy.” I love taking the time to enjoy a pot of tea on a cold, rainy day, cozying up on the couch with hot cocoa and writing holiday cards, or meeting friends at a chill bar and having a great glass of wine and some cheese. I love dark wood, exposed beams, fireplaces, dim lighting and wearing scarves! To me it’s all about slowing down and relishing the moment. I just love finding cozy spots that allow me to take a breather from the sometimes harshness of the city and the day-to-day routine.
If you have any cozy-spot recommendations in NYC, leave them here in the comments!
