Hi friends! I arrived in NYC around 4 pm today and it felt great to be in the city! I definitely am a city girl at heart! I didn’t really stay there long- but enough to to breathe in some cab and hot dog fumes.
Then I met up with my cousin Carrie and baby Lucy to go get this guy!
These aren’t the greatest pics but they are just soooo cute! Jack has gotten so big since I saw him last and he talks and talks and talks. I love it!
We had a family dinner and then I sat sandwiched in between the car seats and off to Red Hook we went!
Just for the record- Jack looks just like his father. Lol
It was dark when we got here but they have a beautiful cabin in the woods and have about 3 acres of land. It’s quiet and serene and you can’t see the neighbors house! Wayyyy different than the city of charm.
This is going to be quick because I’m tired from a day of traveling- but something I plan on talking about is that my cousin and her family have pretty much all become VEGAN since her brush with colon cancer. They are much more aware of what they eat and where it comes from. They are not 100% vegan and if there’s something they want to eat, they don’t deny it from themselves. However, they have made a mindfully aware and mostly plant based diet a party of their lifestyle. A lot of people think becoming vegan is just a diet- but in my opinion that’s not true; it’s a lifestyle.
I’ve been snacking on these:
And they are to die for. They say on the bag “ smokier than a dimly lit bar”- love it.
