Life, Recently

Long weekends are the best the world can offer me. Nothing is better than shaking up the normal routine with a vacation routine... aka waking up at 10 and proceeding to consume endless cups of freshly-brewed coffee. If you know anything about me, is that I have the strongest inability to sit and do nothing. So, when the rest of the world vegetates somewhere, mindlessly eating and lounging, I'm off doing something. So, this what I got up to over the past few days during this burst of Spring weather in February. 

On Thursday and Friday, I returned to my old summer intern stomping grounds at Fohr Card. I jumped right back into my work routine with one of the best teams around, enjoyed delicious New York lunches, and all the little things that brought me back to summer- even though I was wearing a puffer jacket and wool socks. In addition to being back in the Fohr Card offices on Friday, I also met up with Maryellen for an early morning coffee at sun-filled Lafayette. for meeting for the first time, Maryellen and I connected right away blabbering about coffee, Greenwich (both repping the 06830), blogging, politics, and so forth. Plus, we scored some ten-out-of-ten 'grams with the morning light. As Friday wrapped up, I went to Dogpound and literally wrapped up for my favorite workout. My calves are still sore, so pardon me as I go foam-roll for hours on end. 

On Saturday, my mom and I ventured out to one of the best corners of the world, east end of Long Island. I find myself out there more and more during the off-season, so you can bet I'll be there this summer as well. We fianlly checked out the renovated Gurney's Inn, followed by a delicious lunch and ace people watching. After all, it was Valentine's Day weekend and let's just say, some people did not get a ring! The day would not complete without mutiple trips to Hampton's Coffee and one muddy shoe (do it for the pic, right?). 

Sundays have become my favorite day of the week because they are top-of-the-line for much needed "me" time. It also doesn't hurt when Mother Nature pulls a 65 degree and sunny stunt on New England- global warming strikes again! My day was spent driving with *all* the windows down, a long run down by the beach (along with everyone else in town), and a smoothie trip. Now, I'm really excited for summer. How many days to go?

As for Monday, I'm into my third cup of coffee and basking in this bizarre February sunlight. Adios kiddos.
