Sometimes this is how I feel about the mess of friends I have in NYC. Definitely have a craigslist roomie and a random friend here or there. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I would be happy to call Suz my friend too :)
Yesterday, we went to Philly to visit her bro for the evening and had some delishing pulled pork. We caught up with the bro and played with some kitties. It was nice to get out of the city.
Today, we came back on the bus and hunkered in the apartment from the rain. Watched bridesmaids and ate pizza. It was divine. Later on we braved the elements and got Amanda a raincoat and some random ingredients at Eataly. When we got home and cooked our food we realized we had stumbled upon heaven in a grocery bag as we made the most delicious meal. I think I will have to make more stops at Eataly in the future. After dinner we decided to once more brave the elements and put on our gear to go look at the hudson. I’m sure Amanda saw the beauty of the city through the pelting rain.
Tomorrow. Another adventure! So so happy to have her here. :)
“Think of a car driving through the night. The headlights only go a hundred or two hundred feet forward, and you can make it all the way from California to New York driving through the dark, because all you have to see is the next two hundred feet. And that’s how life tends to unfold before us. If we just trust that the next two hundred feet will unfold after that, and the next two hundred feet will unfold after that, your life will keep unfolding.”—
Congratulations to my cousin (by family friendship) Blake on his new baby! I am more than excited!
I have known Blake since I was 6 months old and he is my oldest friend and therefore family. I cant wait to be Aunt Jordan.
And I am so glad his name is not Elvis (like my Aunt Linda told us) but Eli. Which is the perfect name and I cant wait to meet the little guy. I am going to spoil him rotten and teach him all the naughty things his dad did when we were little.
