It's weird that we are rolling right along through May! While life has been rather rainy here in New York (making up for April, perhaps)-- it hasn't been a bit dull. (Besides, I get to wear my beloved Hunter wedge rain boots-- doesn't take much to make me happy.) Here are a few happenings on my end from the past 2 weeks...
A mental break/quick stroll through Nolita and Soho does wonders for me. Was surprised when I looked up to find this mural on an apartment building sidewall. (I named it Frustration Up Above... with Polka-dots.) Also popped into McNally Jackson (my favorite bookstore) a few times for a quick read. David Levithan's Lover's Dictionary is devastatingly well-written, btw.
Stealthily taking pictures of passerby (like this woman & her amazing bag) and not-so stealthily taking pictures of myself in a jacket at Uniqlo. (The jacket didn't work out -- sleeves were too long that I had to tuck them in, and what's the point of that?)
Rainbow fruit at a national sales meeting. (There was so much food -- popcorn, chocolate covered pretzels-- and I had almost all of it, but fruit will always be my favorite!)
The Shins at Terminal 5! I got lucky because my friend Dena took me as a birthday gift. It was a mellow concert, and even better, I got to reconnect with Brian, a friend from high school who was also coincidentally at the concert too!
My coworker Cassandra brought Cinco de Mayo straight to the office, and I love her for it. We all played dress-up and took lots of photos. I kind of wanted to keep those glasses. Would not have minded wearing them into a meeting :)
This Sunday was a very foodie day for me. Brunch with Neetu at Sun in Bloom, a gluten-free & vegan food kitchen in Park Slope. Our group of six ended up shared a kale salad, hummus plate, veggie spring rolls (above), vegan cupcakes (above), and more. I don't know how I ended up eating a whole pizza for dinner at Eataly later in the day, but I just will never surprise myself when it comes to food :)
Hope you've had a good few days too.
