LIFE LATELY

It's been a minute since I've been on here. So much has changed in my personal life that I haven't been ready to share. But this past month spent reflecting and really thinking about where I'm at in life and where I'm going, has put many things into perspective. I won't go into too much detail, but here's a few snaps of the more normal things I've been up, in between the crazy. And when I'm ready to really fill you in, I will. 

 A FEW WEEKENDS BACK WE CELEBRATED MY FRIEND LISA'S BACHELORETTE IN BALTIMORE, MD. WE SPENT THE LONG WEEKEND IN THE CUTEST AIR BnB IN LITTLE ITALY, PEDDLED TO PUBS, SPENT TIME GETTING TO KNOW LISA'S GROUP OF FRIENDS AND ULTIMATELY THREW QUITE THE SEND OFF FOR OUR BRIDE TO BE.

 THE ONE THING I DO IN EVERY CITY I VISIT IS RUN. IT'S MY FAVORITE WAY TO GET ACQUAINTED WITH A NEW PLACE AND BEGIN EACH DAY WITH A CLEAR MIND. MY RUN IN BALTIMORE TOOK ME TO FEDERAL HILL DISTRICT WHERE EACH ROW HOME WAS CUTER THAN THE NEXT.

 LIKE ANY OTHER WEEKEND, THEY END AND IT'S BACK TO WORK I GO. BUT WORK ISN'T SO BAD WHEN YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL LEATHER HIDES OF EVERY COLOR.

 EVER HAVE A MOMENT WHERE YOU'RE 100% CONTENT WITH EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE. NOTHING ELSE IN THE PAST OR FUTURE MATTERS EXCEPT THAT EXACT MOMENT? I HAD ONE OF THOSE THE OTHER DAY. I PICKED UP DINNER AND WALKED TO THE WATERFRONT IN LIC AFTER WORK. I GRABBED A BEER AT THE LANDING AND SAT EATING MY DINNER WATCHING THE SUN SET OVER MANHATTAN. I LOVED EVERY SINGLE SECOND AND TRIED MY BEST TO STAY IN THAT MOMENT FOR AS LONG AS I COULD. THE FUNNY THING ABOUT MOMENTS IS THEY PASS AND AFTER THAT, THEY'RE SIMPLY FLEETING MOMENTS.

 THIS PAST WEEKEND WAS MY LAST VISIT TO VT FOR A WHILE. THERE'S MORE TO THIS STORY, BUT I'LL SAVE IT FOR ANOTHER TIME. FOR NOW, I'LL JUST SHOW YOU HENRY'S, WHERE IT ALL STARTED OUR FIRST TIME IN VERMONT. THIS PLACE HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART, SO IT WAS ONLY NATURAL WE STARTED THE WEEKEND OFF RIGHT BY HAVING ONE LAST BREAKFAST AT THE COUNTER.

 IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE BEEN THIS HAPPY. DAVE AND I CAME ACROSS THE MALT SHOPPE THE LAST TIME I WAS UP IN VT AND VOWED IT'D BE OUR PLACE. THIS RETRO DINER IS EVERYTHING, NOT TO MENTION THE DELICIOUSLY GREASY MENU AND OLD SCHOOL ICE CREAM COUNTER. A GRILLED CHEESE AND STRAWBERRY SHAKE NEVER TASTED SO GOOD.

 WHAT'S A TRIP TO THE GREEN MOUNTAIN STATE IF YOU DON'T HAVE A CREEMEE? SO WHY NOT GO BIG OR GO HOME YOUR LAST TRIP TO VT? THIS MY FRIENDS IS A "BERRY GOLDFISH" A.K.A. A TAIYAKI CONE FILLED WITH BERRIES, HONEY, MINT SOFT SERVE, EDIBLE FLOWERS AND GOLD LEAF. IT WAS UNLIKE ANYTHING I'VE HAD BEFORE AND THE FRESH MINT FLAVOR IS STILL LINGERING ON MY TASTEBUDS.

 DAVE AND I SPENT A LITTLE OVER 2 YEARS IN THIS SPOT. AFTER WORK I'D COME HOME TO HIM SITTING DOWN ON THESE ROCKS WITH A BEER, RELAXING. WE'VE WALKED THIS WATERFRONT IN SUNSHINE, RAIN, ICE AND EVEN KNEE DEEP SNOW. THIS WEEKEND WE TOOK A WALK THERE ADMIRING THE SPOT AND ALL IT'S BEAUTY. IT'S A SPOT HARD TO FORGET AND A SPOT WE'LL SURELY VISIT IN THE FUTURE. BUT FOR NOW, IT'S ON TO NEW SPOTS AND ADVENTURES.
