3 years with this one

{brunch & a stroll through park slope}

J and i met because we were both assigned to lead an alternative spring break trip to san juan, texas on issues related to immigration.  funny that i was actually assigned this trip, as it required fluency in spanish and all i know how to do is order dos tacos, por favor, and habla de los gatos y los perros.  even funnier was how J and i had never even seen each other before on our semi-tiny ~6000 person campus even though we had many mutual friends.  we started dating one week before his graduation (although mine was a year later), and the rest is history.

on sunday, to celebrate, we spent the day how we like it best: with good food, slowly meandering through the tree lined streets of park slope, with the bright blue spring skies reflecting off our sunglasses overhead.

eating all of the cookies & running all of 'em off

{infatuation nomming}

{first smorgasburg of the season}


{boston strong}

so, i'm moving to DC!  i had a really hard time actually accepting my job, which made me wonder if i actually wanted the job.  pouring over many pros and cons lists, i could not for the life of me figure out why i had such a hard time saying "yes." there are so many cool people living in DC that i'd love to catch up with!  it has a really interesting culture! the job is a great opportunity! it wasn't until i realized that the actual moving part of it was what was keeping me from jumping at the opportunity. i've gotten so used to my little space here in new york city that the prospect of leaving friends and familiarity became subconsciously overwhelming.

because waiting for job offers became the bane of my existence for the past 2 months, i decided to sign up for a half marathon to take my mind off the unknown.  obsess over something else, i can do. it was wonderful, and i finished, and i'm once again hooked on the running bug.  afterwards, i hopped on a 5 hour bus to boston and watched my brother run a 6 minute mile for 26.2 miles and it was a happy happy long weekend.


now, a list for documentation's sake:

  • the awful but endearing new york city din that lovingly haunts my dreams 
  • the old man that looks like robert de niro that sits outside our stoop every afternoon with his ancient pug (actually, we're convinced he IS robert de niro, but wears a kippah to "disguise" himself... nice try)
  • being in a prime visiting city for friends new and old 
  • talking about how much i hate times square 
  • talking about how slow everyone walks 
  • the juice place that was visited way too often // the creepy sushi shop called "sushi sushi" right around the corner // living above the best italian restaurant in the UWS 
  • visiting my boyfriend in williamsburg, the trendiest borough on the face of the planet
    • the awful but endearing new york city din that lovingly haunts my dreams 
    • the cold
    • and tourists
