yesterday, my love brought home for me tulips and a basket of ripe strawberries.
it’s the little things.
plans to drink beer after work and all i can think is: what a waste of a great day to be drinking rather than running.
I love my life.
I never understood why people felt overwhelmed with friends’ engagements and weddings and baby-makings until this year. The last week alone has been oh my god.
THREE BABY ANNOUNCEMENTS AND AN ENGAGEMENT IN *24* HOURS HAS TO BE SOME KIND OF RECORD.
In an Uber being driven by the BEST driver I’ve ever had, named Aureliano! We are en route to Newark SIX whole hours before my flight because with the Super Bowl shit show, I am so scared of missing my flight. But fuck, there is NO ONE on the road, so I have hours to kill at the airport.
I leave New York with:
- cold-pressed juice in my belly
- the newest pair of The Most Expensive Shoes I Own (like twofold)—a birthday gift from Cari.
- a very strong motivation to run seriously again !
- a lot of confusion about where I want to live
NYC, I’ll see you again this year!
Signing off to chat with Aureliano.
Breakfast in the East Village, shopping spree in SoHo, dinner in UWS. I still take pride in knowing where all of the optimal bathrooms are in SoHo—because I used to be an idiot and went shopping every other day on an intern’s salary.
If I ever go to brunch in a restaurant with you:
1. You either do not know me very well and I am just being polite or
2. I really really like you a lot—too much to care.
It is almost always #1 because brunch is my least favorite thing in this world. I have so much passion in my hatred for it.I get a lot of shade for this, but to those who are offended, just remember that you run this world!
NYC TOP FIVE
seriously, in my TOP FIVE favorite things about new york city is that we always find ourselves taking a 2+ mile walk after dinner. always.
ever since my summer here, i find myself loving and wanting these digestion walks, but it just doesn’t work anywhere else.
in other news, my legs are frozen solid right now.
