I’ve Shucked the Oyster. Now What?

Last night, while bored in my business class (I know, I’m sorry, I’m a terrible student),  I went back and read a TON of my old posts from my old blog, Holding the Wind. Like going back and reading a diary, it was hilarious and special to walk down memory lane. I loved how I … Continue reading

Photo of the Day: Snappy Service!

Photo of the day comes from Gray’s Papaya, a local New York tradition I some how ignored for the past 8 months. Until this weekend when we got a mid-shopping craving.
