Work has been crazy so far this semester, and of course that’s never helped by an early-semester vacation. Nevertheless, T and I ducked away to his home state of Connecticut for a few days the week after Labor Day for a quick trip. His parents threw us a wonderful, thoughtful engagement party with lots of delicious food and homemade cookies, and we enjoyed unseasonably lovely weather. We spent one day in New York City, shopping, eating, and of course checking out the New York Public Library. We toured a few other CT public libraries, and T took me to a deli he used to frequent in his finance days (it was delicious, and picnicking between a yacht club and golf course is quite scenic), and spent lots of quality time with his family. Re-acclimating to the mundane nature of everyday life has been quite challenging!
