Stepping through NYC to Narnia

You know how you have this perfect vision of something in your head? And it swirls and envelops and takes you to a place reminiscent of Narnia; complete with Turkish Delights, a helpful, well-dressed fawn, and a blanket of snow that makes everything dreamlike? I suppose it’s what fairy tales refer to as a Wonderland. And rarely does it exist in reality. Well, somehow I’ve managed to step through the wardrobe door of New York City (where I was previously living) and find my own magical land in a small city called Portland, Maine.

I’ve got the perfect, most mind-bending job and snow at the ocean. What more could a girl ask for? Other than for the evil witch to stay way up in her stone castle, naturally. I can’t promise I won’t go searching for her, though.

Okay, now that this metaphor has likely taken too many turns to be considered comprehensible, here are my Instagram exploits in a brilliantly overcast winter wonderland.
