Friends… wanted to share with you some updates of the past couple weeks. It’s been a good time.
The week of Thanksgiving my husband and I traveled down to Miami to visit my in-laws. We had a particularly beautiful week of weather punctuated by a few short rain showers (which were actually beautiful themselves).
We celebrated Thanksgiving with two lovely dinners. We also spend time with our friends (best man and bridesmaid at our wedding; same at theirs).
(Wish I had a pic of me and B.)
On Saturday I ended up at a figure drawing class with Bobby’s dad and sketched for three hours. I have gotten severely out of practice with my drawing but perhaps I will pick it back up.

My sister came to visit me this weekend. She arrived on Sunday and she left this morning. She came by because she hadn’t seen our home since we did renovations and also she is leaving in one short week for a 6-month internship at a wolf sanctuary out in Colorado. I’m not sure if I’ll have a chance to visit her out there so we wanted to see each other now while we can.
I had to work yesterday, but after work we all convened downtown (me, Julia, and Bobby) near Bobby’s office to get something for dinner. Bobby suggested Souen, and who am I to disagree! Julia also enjoys Souen though she says it’s a little bland sometimes
So let’s see, what did we get…
Julia ordered the cornbread with a side of miso-tahini spread. (But we all shared it.)

Random thoughts and things.
1) I got back from my trip to India on Sunday morning. Amazing trip. I was in Hyderabad for work for ~8 days (it’s a city in the south of India – in the state of Andhra Pradesh). JFK–>DEL the previous Saturday (after a 5 hour delay at JFK due to plane malfunctions – thanks Air India – a 14 hour flight total), did sightseeing on Sunday in Delhi, and then took a short 2 hour flight DEL–>HYD. Worked with an incredible team all week long, and then began the journey back to JFK this past Saturday. Two unexpected things about this trip to India: 1) I didn’t get to do any yoga aside from sun salutations in my hotel room and 2) there are way fewer vegetarians than I expected. I was just about full VEG for the whole trip. (I think I had a chicken sandwich in the airport on the first day.)
