Sitting on a MegaBus en route to New York City for a long weekend. As I walked from my apartment to the train (like 7 whole minutes) my new weekend bag slung over my shoulder and my sunglasses on, I thought to myself “how nice is this? To live somewhere that I can leave my car at home and just jaunt off to the train station for a weekend getaway? How lucky am I to have friends and relatives who live exciting places? To have a half day of work on the Friday of a long weekend?”

Lucky lady I am.

Especially because I have an empty seat next to me on the bus. Heaven is truly a place on earth. Check back this weekend for carefully curated instagrams of New York carbohydrates and hollandaise sauces.
