Guys, I had the best extended birthday weeks. I had my weekend at home in St. Louis that was so lovely and wonderful. And then a weekend in New York with Susie that was also lovely and wonderful. On Friday night, we continued a Compton Ladies tradition–margs and tacos at the neighborhood mexican restaurant. We than stayed up late GABBING away. We got up super early on Saturday, though, to venture down to the southernmost tip of Manhattan to catch the ferry to Governor’s Island. The subway was being a total bitca but we made it. And Governor’s Island did NOT disappoint.
It was a thousand degrees and very sunny (and very sweaty) but we persevered. We rode bikes and walked all over and climbed some man-made hills to get to that view. Can you handle it? On Sunday, we again ventured on the subway to get to brunch near Tribeca. It was so good. We treated ourselves to birthday mimosas and dishes with avocados. In the afternoon, some friends of mine gathered at my favorite neighborhood bar, Joe’s, for some happy hour drinks and chatting. I got delightful presents and felt very special. It was a delightful weekend and I feel very grateful and hashtag blessed.
