Hello! It’s currently Tuesday night and this is the first time I’ve opened my computer since Saturday morning. A few reasons for that, but the main one being that my computer died. Boom, crash, gone. Long story short I bought a new one and it kind of feels like Christmas morning. But that is the smallest change in my life lately because, ummmm…I’m living in New York. Officially.
I have so much to say and yet I don’t know if I will ever find the right words to describe how I’m feeling. Feelings are weird, remember? Basically, it’s what I expected to be feeling (nervous, excited, overwhelmed) and I’m handling it
like a champ as best as I can. That means doing little things for comfort, like running and eating at Whole Foods, while slowly exploring the area like the big girl I am. Seriously, who allowed me to live in this big city alone? Aren’t I still in high school?
Before my dad left we spent some time wandering the city. To say he is the best is the understatement of the century. I’m really lucky. We had so much fun together eating and walking and eating and walking. He even let me wear leggings, a sweatshirt and messy bun out all day…take that, mom ;) The only thing we didn’t do was run together in Central Park (damn weather). Next time, definitely.
Enough words. Let’s do pictures, mainly of food. I’m going to do a gluten-free in NYC post once I try more places. I’ll update the list as the summer goes on!
Dinner at Local Thyme: Kale + roasted sweet potato + beets + pumpkin seeds + avocado + tahini dressing
Braving the crowds at Whole Foods. The checkout line is INSANE.
Wine in the hotel. Wish I could have lived there this summer…
A run through Central Park. Even on a dreary, rainy day it still looked gorgeous.
Dinner at Dig Inn. Lemon herb chicken + kale and rhubarb salad + sweet potatoes
I feel like there is so much more to share, but I’ll end it here today. Hopefully Mother Nature gets the memo that it’s JUNE not March. This Florida girl is spoiled with the weather…and she likes it that way. Any gluten-free friendly restaurant recommendations send them my way! I have so many on my list but could always use more.
