Happy Friday! I had a pretty good week, did you? I especially enjoyed reading all the lurker introductions the other day. I read every single one and was so impressed with what an accomplished and eclectic readership we have. I wish all you lurkers commented a little more. Please do if you feel compelled to! We like you.
I’m so excited for this weekend because Drew and I are going away! Just the two of us! Drew took Monday off from work and on Sunday morning we’re taking a train 90 minutes north of Manhattan to an inn we stayed at back in May, and we spend one night there and come back Monday evening. There’s a farm-to-table restaurant across the street (the farm is on the same property as the inn) and a spa where we’re going to hang out in steam rooms and hot tubs like we’re on a reality TV date. I didn’t realize when we made the reservations that the Super Bowl in on Sunday, so… sorry/not sorry to Drew that, instead of eating wings and watching the game, he’s going to be at a spa with me. But he is a sport! When I realized the conflict and asked if he wanted to change our reservations, he was all, “I don’t care about those teams.” He saves all his love for the Yankees.
What else? Oh, I got the cutest thank you letters from the fifth grade class in North Carolina that we sent books to for Christmas. Next week, I’ll share some of the best ones with you. They’re adorable.
Today is my younger sister’s (golden) birthday. She’s 31. Which means I’m getting old because we are so far apart in age that Allison was only 11 when I left home for college. And now she’s well into her 30s. Happy birthday, Allie!
And happy weekend to all of you!
