Of her most memorable trip, Crissy says this: While visiting family and friends over the holidays when I was 23 years old, I had the opportunity to go on a few flights with a friend of mine who is a pilot. We flew in a small plane above our hometown at the Jersey shore one day, pointing out some of our favorite landmarks. On a particularly clear night, we flew up to New York City and traced the Hudson River through Manhattan. It was the evening before Thanksgiving Day, so busy travelers lit up the highways and the city streets. Who would have thought traffic could be beautiful? The views from above were breathtaking and it is an experience I will always remember.
