Adam and I left Lucille and Gromit behind with his Aunt and took the train from New Haven, CT into Grand Centeral Station for three days. We stayed with dear friends, Joel and Hailey in their new romantically simple Brooklyn apartment. Yes, romantically simple describes it perfectly.
Mornings were the highlight of the visit. We slept in, sat on the kitchen floor with the morning light filtering though the old windows while Joel cooked a slow, perfectly drawn-out, four coarse breakfast of black coffee, smoothies, eggs, and cinnamon raisin toast topped with almond butter and honey. We spent a lot of time conversing about goals for our futures near and far. It's really unique/special when you can connect with friends this way to truly encourage one another to chase after their next dream. We left New York knowing we would miss and cherish this time with our friends and also feeling VERY motivated to continue on this journey and for what is to come.
