Lately life has been a blur of coffee, suitcases, friends and food. I have started the process of sifting through all of my clothes and possessions, and have realized just exactly how much crap I have. I feel like a hoarder, I guess I must be my mothers daughter after all ha. Point is, fitting your life into two 50 pound suitcases for 2-3 years is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. Everything makes me sentimental, but weirdly enough all of this has made me realize that taking a year off after graduating instead of jumping into Grad school was a good idea. My head may be a jumble of recipes for lattes and specialty drinks after a year of working at a coffee shop, but its relaxed and ready to take on this new adventure. If I hadn't, I fear I may have burnt out half way through...
Anywho, on the brightside my last week at work is next week and I couldn't be happier to no longer serve coffee to rude rich upper west siders... well with the exception of the handful of great customers I had and my coworkers. It's definitely bittersweet, and the past couple of days the reality of my departure is becoming scarily real. The last time I up and moved like this was over 2 years ago when I studied in England, so I am a little anxious.
I'll leave you with a few photos from the past couple of days, excuse the camera phone quality. Sometimes I can't be bothered to lug my dslr around.

Carrot cake/cheesecake. Do I even need to say more? Junior's cheesecake is just about the best cheesecake ever! The cheesecake factory has never done much to my taste buds, and this is the reason why.

I am convinced I need a big floppy hat, not sure exactly if I can pull it off haha. I wonder if i'll get too many weird looks in scotland if I bust this baby out?

Mmm Bryant park in the summer, extra sunny and not too full. I am not looking forward to the madness that will ensue in the city once fashion week arrives...


  1. I LOVE cheesecake and I think that floppy hat looks great on you! Hooey on anyone who would think/say otherwise :) You can totally rock it, girl! And the picture of the park makes me miss NYC fading summer weather so much!! There is no place like the City...

    And I think its great you took a year off too! It goes by quickly, eh? But now you are stronger, and more self-assured, you can deal with all sorts of people and you (hopefully) earned some money! Best of luck on your new adventures, love!! I can't wait to read about them :)

  2. Sounds like things have been good for you! Good luck with your packing and everything! I've never really moved anywhere, except into a college dorm, so I can't imagine the craziness of packing up all of my stuff and taking it all somewhere new.

    Also, we should definitely get coffee or something before you leave! :)
