So I'll admit to being entirely selfish lately! After spending the majority of last week in New York City (a city that I feel beats parallel to my own heart), I have returned to a luxury weekend of relaxation.
I met a few friends in New York, from...get this...elementary school! I don't have a single friend from High School, but can connect just fine with my old first-grade pals! We shopped on 5th Ave, dined in Little Italy, went to "Promises Promises" and the Museum of Natural History. I hardly missed pushing the stroller, listening to a familiar whine or answering questions on Etsy. It was bliss!
I'm not sure if Axel even missed me as we clearly needed a break from each other, he did seem happy to see my however when I presented him with a 6-foot stuffed snake from the museum! Someday I hope to take him there as it is FABULOUS and he would love it!
This weekend the weather here in the mid-west (most recently known as the "oven of america") has turned the corner and I woke up today to a brisk breeze, lower humidity than we've seen in months and a happy smile on my face. I woke up just a bit early, so I could steal a few minutes reading silently on my new "nook".
While lavish shopping trips to the Big Apple, self-gift of a new eReader, and making myself a new guitar strap may not be what causes happiness, taking care of myself for the first time in 2.5 years is a good start.
Any nook users out there interested in sharing books?
