adventures in weekending: pizza, rooftop sunsets and growing up
The weekend was spent delighting in small, significant moments: heaps of food (obviously) and just taking the time out to think about upcoming changes. Reminiscing with an old friend or even just taking a short pause triggered some scary, albeit exciting thoughts about the future.
A Thai chicken pizza shared between me and my love (and leaving him my crusts).
Spicy chai tea lattes.
Stopping to savor the surrounding beauty. I can’t resist snapping photos of gorgeous, cheery blooms.
Enjoying the last few minutes of the sunset from Bob’s rooftop, where Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan are in clear vision.We even spotted the neighborhood we’ll be moving into (hopefully) by the end of the year.
And having lots of Italian food and wine with my newly-engaged best friend (eeeek!). Witnessing a friend’s life from childhood makes events like this all the more impactful. I still can’t believe I’m at that age where the people around me are getting married, pregnant and moving away. It’s just all happening so quickly…and yet, not really.
This part of my life reminds me of the very first day at a new school. I was terrified of being in an unfamiliar setting and not knowing anyone. But once I stepped inside, I formed relationships I knew I would keep for life and memories to cherish forever. So while I’m nervous about the next chapters of life, it’s a good kind of nervous.
