When we moved to New York a lot of people asked how we’re going to deal with the NYC winters. Most would follow that up with how great Fall was in New York. We’re in Fall and its stunning. The weather is crisp, sometimes cold, but it makes walking this beautiful city even better. We were out and about most of October so it’s a great month to look back on!
What an absolutely incredible month. Between an amazing trip to Europe, a beautiful time in New York, and a stunning bridal shower at the Mission Inn, it was quite the month indeed.
If it wasn't real before, it is real now. We are now New Yorkers. As the boxes were recycled, new furniture delivered, and work began to ramp up, we have started to settle into our new normal. As I write this though it still doesn't feel real. At times I feel like I'm staying in an Air BnB and I'm just waiting for my flight back to California. But with each passing week we become true full-fledged New Yorkers, and so far we really love it.
I became a fan of Dan Pfeiffer back in the Keeping it 1600 podcast days. It was at a time that I and much of the US was terrified of the mere thought of a Drumpf presidency. When that disaster became a reality I stayed with the crew and have continued to enjoy all of their Crooked Media ventures. The concept of Yes We Still Can is great, what worked well in the Obama presidency that we can tap to get a Democrat elected in 2020. To spur along this discussion Dan brings his extensive political background and insider Obama stories from his six years in the White House.
We've had a little bit of a gap in between our last recipe but we're back with our latest one and yes its another pasta dish. We love pasta what can we say. This latest pasta dish is a shrimp pasta in a garlic tomato cream sauce. Unlike a lot of the pasta we make, this was a cream sauce we made from scratch and it turned out beautifully.
We’ve come to the end. Our last day in Lisbon and our last day on this extraordinary adventure has arrived and it was hard to come to terms with it this morning. So much so that we just tried to sleep through it. We didn’t wake up until a little after 9 AM. I went to get us some Starbucks and we stayed in and relaxed until noon.
