That picture above will forever remind me of my return to my beloved New York City after a four-year break. Breakfast at Amai with Mike and a very sick Evan (the reason for the four-year break) as the city walks by-- we enjoyed some Matcha tea latte, green tea muffin and black bean square. I've been following Kelli's blog for years so we just had to visit her place. It was very lovely, a comforting haven in a big city with a sick child.
We stayed at a lovely B&B in Vermont where cows grazed outside our window. Evan fed the cows some apples as he slowly started to recover from his ear infection and high fever. I, on the other hand, was starting to get fierce headaches and body aches on this leg of the trip.
A nice walk through Sculptured Rocks in New Hampshire. Life is good.
Our vacation was marred with sickness, some sad news from my sister-in-law and moments when I just wanted to be at home, under the covers enjoying my warm Southern California sunshine but we met so many wonderful people and enjoyed such beautiful scenery. I came away with some good perspective on life and an appreciation for home and what I have.
