Call me crazy, but sometimes a one hour drive to a market is needed. Especially when that market has the best (the only!?) raw, vegan, cashew milkshakes in the world. One of my friends/roommates in college and I used to play a game of asking each other “what would you do with **million dollars?”, every time we passed the highway billboard, on our drive into Providence. Well, you know what I would do? One. buy a house for me and my little (and decorate it all kinds of awesome). Two. Fill it with cashew milkshakes. (No, this whole post isn’t about milkshakes… though it could be, because yes, I drove down to Miami specifically for milkshakes. Sometimes you just have to do those things).
Last saturday was nice. I like Miami a lot. A lot, a lot. We spent a bit of time at the market and spent the rest of the day walking around South Beach. Marlowe was gifted a vintage beaded necklace… which I ended up wearing (and it is now sitting on my desk in a million pieces). I purchased my delicious honey, and left regretting the fact that I did not purchase an incredible body scrub we were all forced to try. All in all, it was a pretty good day and I am looking forward to heading back there soon. While, I would love to live there, I wouldn’t be able to get past my hate for Miami traffic… soooo… for now, I’m pretty satisfied to have such a great place to explore and reconnect in, only one hour away.
I’m not sure what this weekend has in store for little M and I. It’s currently friday night and I’m in the process of getting ready to go out on a lady date. Alex has Marlowe. The new thing is Tuesdays and Fridays. And currently? It’s kinda bumming me out. I know she’s fine and happy… and whatever else.. but the little one has been super clingy and cuddly lately and I’ve been loving every minute of it. I know it’s partially my hormones and whatever else (sometimes it’s hard being a lady), but gee I miss her. I even cried a bit (sobbed like a baby) this morning when she left. She returns tomorrow morning and I’m looking forward to doing nothing, everything, or a little of both this weekend… just as long as it involves lots of cuddles.
Happy weekend, everyone and happy Mother’s day to all your moms and moms to be out there!
Hope you get lots of extra hugs and kisses!
