But you can’t take the Midwest out of the girl. I may not be interested in getting married and making babies any time soon, but I do love setting a beautiful table.

Heading back to MI today for  Easter and a little time off, but New York gave me a great send off – Cuban cocktails uptown with some Columbia friends new and old, a beautiful sunset over Riverside, delicious Mexican with some fantastic coworkers, and a ride home on the N watching the beautiful Manhattan skyline. So long for now…

It’s my day off, and of course I can’t seem to relax. But I’m trying, doing some of my favorite “spoiling myself” things. Wearing leggings and an oversized sweater, splurging on a mani-pedi (which was actually a great deal), and stopping at a great coffeeshop I stumbled on called Cafe Pedlar in an attempt to finish with Gatsby.
