thankful for framily.

Having already made it to December 1st I feel strange recounting Thanksgiving as it already seems like it could be so far in the past. But here I am recounting the past holiday and simultaneously saying.... HOLY CRAP HOW IS IT DECEMBER?!


Because my parents and I decided not to travel this year for Covid safety reasons, I stayed in NYC with my boyfriend, Chris, and our room mate and we had a sweet little dinner on Friday.

I attempted roasted whole fish. (did you know fish are bony? oh man, I need to learn the proper way to eat a fish without getting many little bones in every bite.) I'll give myself a thumbs up for taste though....

The apple pie however, was not bony at all. Samin's all-butter pie dough wins again!

(See cherry pie post from last summer)

but like, how is it December already?!

Just a few days shy of 4 months in New York and I'm so glad I made this move. Yeah, it's weird ass times. Yes, I miss my parents SO MUCH and am very sad that I won't see them this holiday season. Absolutely, I ride the train every day and it's usually full enough to not allow for proper social distancing.

But for the first time in a long time I'm not trying to get to somewhere else because I'm right where I've wanted, and maybe needed, to be.

More soon. xoxo,

We miss you too Ty and I vow that I will put up some Christmas decorations and Tomtin notes just to feel the love, comfort, and joy of the season. I haven't done anything yet. But, Dec 1 is time.
