memorable moments

it has been far too long since my last post. a trip to miami to savor my last few days of break had me distracted–and by that i mean parked next to a pool with little regard for anything but the sunshine.

before that, though, i spent an arctic three weeks at home, in new york. here is a recap in classic fashion of some of my coziest, happiest moments from those chilly days.

a still life of sorts: coffee, glasses, watercolors, and blurry newspapers atop a beautiful marble counter at the stunning downtown eatery, lafayette. my friend and i only stopped in at the coffee bar, but i plan to return for a full meal as soon as humanly possible.

an urban scene out the lafayette window, where we sat and chatted until our presence became questionable. so what if we spent $2.50 and stayed for three hours?

a moving (pun intended) exhibition in the media gallery at the MOMA. a mildly painful reminder of warmer and calmer surroundings, but beautiful nonetheless.

the ultimate comfort meal cooked by my best friend on new year’s eve: bacon macaroni and cheese, crispy on the outside and oozing on the inside. string beans with toasted almonds. honeyed carrots. oh, and champagne. definitely champagne.

then the snow took over and made me do this…

park myself next to the tree, in front of the fire, under a blanket, with netflix.

once the snow cleared, i made sure to venture out for a few treats…

like these fluffy cornmeal pancakes at tipsy parson.

and the juiciest tuna burger at orsay.

but don’t worry, i made an attempt at balance, ordering meals like the one above, a chopped salad with tofu from spring natural kitchen.

of course the days zipped by and i am now left to post from the comfort (ha) of a cubby in the library at school.

here’s to memories of the wonders of home.
