We met up with Julia after her run around lower Manhattan and ate breakfast near the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
This looks like an ice cream sundae, but it's really a healthy breakfast of walnuts and yogurt.
Pictures in Times Square! After the show it seemed like a million people were milling around 42nd Street. Julia left us to head towards her home for music practice for the 7:30 PM Mass at the Church of the Epiphany just two blocks from her home.
Karen and I walked around looking for a place to eat dinner. Lots of choices.
My heart just swelled with pride and tears came to my eyes as I heard Julia sing in this beautiful church. The choir director told me after mass, "we love Julia and always let her be our cantor if she comes to this Mass." As busy as she is, she finds time every week to practice and sing at the Sunday night Mass. How many college students do that?? Julia shared so much with us - her work life, her relationship with Connie and Garry, her dreams for the future! It made our time in NYC so much more enjoyable - just being with her and sharing her crazy life.

Relaxing in her apartment... She slept on this little couch and gave us her big bed! Thank you Julia.
