My sister and my mom had dropped off their luggage in the hotel and we were going to meet for lunch… When we met up, we were all wearing coats, but I go, “Um.. mom. Does your sweater have elbow patches?” Yep. Totally matched. What can we say! We both love the J. Crew elbow patch sweater clearly.
We shopped a bit in Soho and uptown… took a break to charge our phones (why is the battery life so bad now?)… and then went to a late dinner at The Smith with Garrett.
Saturday was a big day… because we went to Brooklyn. It was fun to explore new places. I felt like I was on vacation. (I remembered why I rarely go to Brooklyn though because it took forever to get there from the Upper East Side.) We went to the Brooklyn Flea and it was so fun. Stacy was essentially in heaven and we all got cute little things.
While we were eating brunch, I had this moment where I was beyond content. Surrounded by family and friends… in an amazing city… and I love my job… where I get to do exactly what I love to do… and I’m having fun… So much love going on in my life right now and that makes me happy.
I hate using the word lucky, but I can’t really find the word I’m looking for. I just feel like this honestly can’t be real life or something. It’s definitely not easy as there is still work to be done and risks to be taken. But it’s a lot more enjoyable when there are so many “goods” going on. The difficulties and the stress and the anxiety are worth it because of the good. I feel like I’ve been saying in my head over and over again, “My cup runneth over.”
As I continue to figure out who I am and where I am headed, I know that I have now. I have today. And I have my friends and family. For that, I am grateful and… simply… happy.
