I've had a love/hate relationship with Miami most of my life. Having grown up here I couldn't wait to move away, after experiencing life in other cities and countries I returned to Miami (albeit hesitantly at first). However, the influx of amazing restauranteurs, local events and the slow emergence of community camaraderie that has formed over the last few years, has really shone a new light on the Magic City. Miami, you have a long way to go to be as mature and well spoken as New York or Paris; but you're coming into your own and impressing us all along the way. Perhaps you will always remain somewhat juvenile, but that eager spirit to make your own way suits you.
