Today we attended a baby shower at Forbidden City, a lounge in Manhattan. The shower was in honor of Christy and Rodrigo, who are expecting their first child, a girl, in August.

FC used to be "our spot," the place we went to almost every Friday and Saturday night. Whenever anyone was visiting from out of town, we took them to Forbidden. The food and music were always good, and the drinks were always flowing freely, especially on the nights Christy bartended.

When I first moved to NYC I would go out with E and his group of friends, most of whom all knew each other through Christy's boxing and kickboxing classes that she taught at Crunch gym. After a few years, we drifted from some of those friends, but today we were reunited with some of them.

It was nice to see them again and to know that they were doing well. It's funny though, no matter how much time has passed, some things never change.

A whole different world.

When you see friends after so much time has passed and it still feels like home you know the connection is real and something to be treasured...
