Come fly with me! Let’s fly! Let’s fly awaaay!!

NEW YORK OR BUST!!! The Biggie Smalls marathon has been in full effect from late night into the early hours of this morning. I've been chanting lyrics like mantras and taking myself back to my NYC vibe... hoodies, MET cards, pizza, etc. It's about to get hectic. Right... off to the airport I go. No more nervous breakdown (for the moment), let's talk about why my trip is going to be hot... Most importantly... my PEOPLE. I roll with a small, tight...
