You don’t ever have to have set foot in New York to know its cultural impact. It’s influenced so many great songs from Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” to “New New York” from the Cranberries and “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” from The Beastie Boys. Then, of course, there’s Madonna’s “I Love New York” and Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” I mean the list goes on and on. That’s also why it’s no wonder that “NCIS: Los Angeles” alum Renée Felice Smith found herself enamored by Hudson, New York recently.
She and her long-term partner, Christopher Gabriel, appeared to be running some errands and couldn’t contain their love for the city anymore. Here’s why she said she was “slightly freaking out” in her latest Instagram post.

The ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Alum Shares a Last Minute Christmas Present Idea
Renée Felice Smith shared news of the book release recently. It’s only available through Red Jacket Books and the star thinks it makes the perfect last-minute Christmas gift for your littles that love to read. It follows a brave little dog who embarks on a journey to conquer the impossible. He meets various woodland creatures along the way and learns about things like determination.
In a previous interview, Smith revealed that the book was loosely based on the life of the couple’s own dog. Unfortunately, the couple’s French bulldog got diagnosed with a brain tumor some time ago. Luckily, though, he was able to overcome the life-threatening illness and live a happy life. He beat all the odds against this “impossible thing” with the support of his animal-lover parents.
