Nathan and I are getting married in two weeks! That makes me so happy!

We were given surprise tickets for a surprise reception in New York!

I was so excited to see New York!

Getting of the plane was like walking into some kind of tablet bar:

But the best part was Nathan there to pick me up!

Immediately the adventures began!

Oh, and Lincoln Center!

And the Manhattan temple!

And Nathan took me to a gluten free grilled cheese sandwich restaurant, and we had Cuban corn, and we had rice pudding in SoHo!

And yes, a carriage ride through Central Park!

It was so lovely!

Did I mention this included a chocolate tour of New York?! Wowza!!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
