Having grown up smack dab in the middle of nowhere in Texas, it is sometimes surreal walking around NYC and seeing iconic buildings that I have always seen in movies and on television. Of course, Macy’s is one of New York’s biggest icons, which set the stage for my favorite Christmas movie Miracle on 34th Street. Nowadays, it also reminds me of my niece, who announced when she was 8, all she wanted was to go shopping at Macy’s. Her parents convinced her to wait a few years and every year on her birthday she sends me a countdown until she gets to come and visit Macy’s (oh, and her Auntie Sherry of course!).
