love : nyc



hook & ladder company 115, engine company 258 : long island city

i love nyc so much it makes me cry sometimes. i'm really fortunate to call it my home. scott is lucky because he was born here. i felt bad that i didn't have anything special to share today. then, i saw this photo and remembered i did. of course, we live just down the street from a fire house and hear the trucks all the time. scott had two uncles who were firemen. so, thank you to new york's bravest, finest and everyone who takes the risk of paying the ultimate price by being first to rush into a disaster. thank you for taking care of us. we recognize the sacrifices you & your families make to keep our city safe and hope you will be, too.

xo, cindy

Gorgeous post! My next door neighbor was a firefighter for many years, and unfortunately succumbed to cancer last year. They are such heroes, and take care of their own whether they are on or off the job.

Absolutely.

Having seen the destruction of the huge CA brushfire recently, I have to bow down to those brave men and women firefighters. God bless 'em.

Yes this is a good reminder to us all, to not take others and their work for granted. Thank you!
