Far, far away in a land known for it’s hard workers, big dreams and bigger attitudes, people came from all over the world to see our art, our parks, our shows and yes, occasionally eat at Applebee’s in Times Square. Remember it? We’d go to bars that were too loud and drink expensive martinis then stumble home and complain about the cold, hard winter. We’d shop and buy beautiful shoes that we know darn well we won’t wear down the dirty sidewalks. We’d meet lovely tourists then yell at them to move out of the way! That was the old NYC. Now, it’s the home of our new President, I can’t even say his name.
Before we move on to a new cold war, ahem, I mean New Year!, I must remember that just a few months ago I was truly happy.
It started with the wedding of the Millenials, Mae and Bryna. It was a gorgeous spectacle set among the Maine finger lakes.
The wedding was followed by a quick trip to celebrate wedding anniversaries (our fifth and Kelly and John’s 10th) in California wine country, with exceptional wine tastings at Crocker and Star, Jarvis , Cade and lots of love shared between friends.
From San Francisco to Sicily for a bike trip with more friends! (I hope they ARE still friends?!) We rode through Ragusa, Scicli, Noto, Ortigia, through many farms and beaches and it was all perfection. Ride, Eat, Drink! Or was it, Eat, Ride, Drink or Drink, Eat, Drink, Ride, I don’t know…
Just a happy local
