on consulting + going out on my own

You’re never leaving, right? my client jokes last week after I give him a recap of my activity. Even though I’ve been on this assignment for only a short period of time, I feel connected to the people with whom I’ve been working–the ease in which I’ve assimilated into the group shocks me still–and my client, in jest, talked about having me aboard, full-time….

ice cream + friendship

Today I bought an ice-cream maker, this one to be exact. In my ongoing quest to make my house a place I’d always want to return to, I’ve been slowly accumulating the things that bring me joy and allow me to share my space with those who I love. Over the past few weeks, a steady stream of friends have made their way to…

quick bite: best salted honey pie in new york

Worth the trek to Brooklyn {so convenient to the R train!}, Four x Twenty Blackbirds serves up the finest slice of salted honey pie you’ll ever taste. Naturally, if you want to make it at home, here’s the recipe.

making connections, building your kula over two plates + blocking the barnacles

When it comes to people I have a very simple rule: if I can’t share a meal with you I don’t want to know you. Regardless of age, industry or income, food has the magical capacity to bind us, allowing for real, meaningful connections even if we don’t realize it. What we reveal about ourselves when faced with a table, napkins, flatware and plates…

fried chicken, french toast, slt + great girlfriends

“None of us can help the things life has done to us. They’re done before you realize it, and once they’re done they make you do other things until at last everything comes between you and what you’d like to be, and you’ve lost your true self forever.” ― Eugene O’Neill, Long Day’s Journey Into Night Sometimes the hardest journeys we take measure the…

the best egg sandwich in new york. prove me wrong.

The best scrambled egg sandwich can be found at House of Small Wonder. Farm-fresh eggs, thyme, parmesan, salt + pepper, this sandwich is deceptively simple and delicious. I usually get my sandwich on a fresh ciabatta instead of a croissant, and if you’re not down with a scramble, the other affordable eats on the menu are pretty damn delicious.

brunch at lafayette + meeting “new” people {it’s a journey, folks}

Contrary to popular belief, I am not an extrovert. Casual acquaintances and work colleagues will probably beg to differ, for I can be pretty gregarious around people I’ve come (or have been paid, as in the case of work) to know. When I say that crowds give me anxiety, that the idea of working a room gives me vertigo and I’d rather cower in…

brunch at sarabeth’s + cultivating a kula

Today I had one of those days where nothing happened, yet everything happened. Forever petrified of “new” people, I spent the morning with a friend and her best friend, working out and eating all there was to eat at Sarabeth’s. When I left, I found myself staring at a woman at the crosswalk, and when I shouted, K? Is that you?, she glanced up…

little prince + a meditation on what’s next

I’m constantly aware of lost opportunities. I used to think such lost opportunities were beautiful towns flashing by my train windows, but now I imagine they are lanterns from the past, casting light on what’s ahead. – Chris Huntington Some time ago I thought I’d lost four years of my life. I kept running to stand still, but there was no stillness, only noise…
