There’s nothing like packing the sandals you’ve long put away for the season to really make you feel like you’re going to California.  Normally in situations like this (going to a destination for a friends wedding) my husband and I try and save money and get in and out of that destination as fast as possible.  But this time was different.  My husband had never been to California, and I’d been years ago for barely three days. This, along with having friends graciously let us stay with them, allowed us to make an ultra long weekend out of this trip to my high school friend’s wedding. We were able to enjoy the sun and the food and our friends without feeling rushed. And even as we sat on the plane back to NYC and wished we could spend at least a week more in LA, we felt like we had actually gotten a break from the city and our lives, which have proved to be quite hectic for almost a year straight now.

Happy Labor Day everyone!!!! This is it.  The beginning of the end of summer.  In New York all anyone does is dream through the snow covered curbs for summer.  And then as soon as it gets here, they bitch about how hot it is.  Classic.  I will say this summer has felt like it’s making up for lost time.  The end of it has been humid and thick and kinda felt like a good ol’ armpit to walk around in.

Spending part of my childhood in Florida, the heat doesn’t usually bother me. I enjoy it, I’ll sweat it out. This year, this past month, surrounded in concrete, has been rough.

HOWEVER

What could give you more delicious relief and feel like an island getaway in your mouth than a key lime pie?
