personal musings of a native Torontonian, currently living in Philadelphia. she predicts she will turn into Emily Gilmore when she gets older.
Here’s to the beginning of a new week!
This time of year in the Northeast can make anyone feel as though there is no end to winter. I can’t tell whether the arrival of magazine issues espousing the joys of spring/summer fashion perk me up or bring me down. I shall go with the positive if only to encourage me to stay hopeful for warmer days - IN
I saw this couple last night in Bryant Park and asked them if I could snap their photo. After showing them the results, I sat down for a chat. The first leaves were shaking themselves off the trees in the strong breeze and I asked what the occasion for their picturesque picnic was figuring an anniversary or birthday. The man put his cards down and smiled at me saying, “I have been married to the best girl in the world for 30 years, I am doing my best to make sure she knows that.”
While our first date may have been like the photo above, today was equally lovely if culturally less high-brow. McDs, furniture shopping, and a lot of gourmet sashimi takeout (plated at home of course with micro basil, served with homemade miso soup and pork chips) make for a splendid last summer Friday. Thanks, T for a great day - IN
After years of being in different countries, T and I have shared the last 3 years in the same city. I am being melodramatic but with T being in Spain for the past few days, I’ve been missing him tremendously. Maybe because it’s raining so I’m getting nostalgic and emotional. Or maybe because we really have gotten inseparable in how we live our daily lives. Or maybe I’m just jealous that he is in San Sebastian. Either way, I’m looking forward to him coming home this weekend - IN
