Today could not have been the more perfect start to spring! It was a cool 68º the sun was shinning and everyone was outside. I began my day with a trip to Brooklyn to get my taxes done. I was kicking my heels for 2 reasons (1) I don’t fancy going to Bklyn and (2) Who is really happy to do their taxes? To my surprise the whole experience was quick and left me smiling 🙂 Special shout out to the Freelancers Union for all their help!
I headed over to meet Louie, the newest “SoHa” resident. I’m actually quite excited to have him in the neighborhood as slowly but surely all my NYC BFF’s are moving uptown ;). We met at Havana Central on of my favorite spots on the Upper West Side. I had the Sandwich de Pollo Extaordinario with a side of tostones and Louie enjoyed Pollo y Camarones. The environment was extremely relaxing and the food of course was delish. We talked about life, work, and new ventures. Louie was distracted by the loss of Villanova and how it apparently messed up his bracket. — womp! LOL! ( Can you tell I’m not a sportsinista? ) 😀After lunch we walked around the neighborhood to soak up the incredible weather. Louie still hadn’t fully explored the area so I gave him a mini tour..Along the way I couldn’t help getting giddy over all the beautiful flowers! Overall I’m excited for what the spring/summer has in store. Winter is utterly miserable after a while since everyone becomes a hermit! Plus having great friends close by is really making this concrete jungle feel like “home”. They say “home” is where the heart is and N.Y.C I fall in love with you more everyday 😉 — Thanks Louie for a fabulous day and a perfect start to spring!
