“I’m so happy you’re happy… that’s lovely.”
And that’s all she said.
A few weeks ago I met my college roommate for dinner. It was wonderful: lots of laughs, lots of memories and lots of smiles.
As we got up to leave the restaurant, she took one look at me, gave me a huge hug and said, “Ame, after all you’ve been through… I’m so happy you’re happy… That’s lovely.”
And with those few words I started to tear up because it is lovely when you are living your passion by helping people, making them smile and teaching them that’s there’s more to life than kale.
I mean, come on now. There’s collard greens, too. Hehe.
It’s just simply lovely.
Here’s a few snapshots of a typical sunny week in Manhattan.
I was introduced to a new fruit called Quenepa.
Took a stroll in my summer white jeans.
And my summer white shorts.
Experienced a full, fun day at the Good Housekeeping test kitchens.
Attended two of the most amazing foodie events downtown.
Treated myself to a bushel of pretty flowers. Just because.
Started round 2 of my IV chelation and then shopped in the Flatiron area.
Munched on a lil’ veggie snack with hummus at the Hearst Tower.
Skipped through the Central Park Zoo.
And enjoyed four beautiful nights of walking home from downtown.
Have a fabulous weekend.
