April has been busy. And fun. And lovely.
Here is what I have been up to:
-One night, my nearest and dearest friends converged on my apartment and drank lots of wine. Then this happened:
-Myself, Ben, his parents, and my parents went to dinner at Root 174. I really like this place. We had fried brussel sprouts and mussels and artichokes and housemade kimchi and pork and sauerkraut and apple and green tomato cobbler. Yes, apple and green tomato cobbler. I was rolled home shortly thereafter. Although we BYOed when we went, I am hearing via Twitter that Root174 now has a liquor license and is also serving brunch. Fun stuff.
-With Ben’s parents in town, we also made a visit to Cafe at the Frick. We sat outside on the unseasonably warm spring day and the setting was pretty much perfection. I ordered an iced tea and the mushroom flatbread and thoroughluy enjoyed all of it. I have now also developed a slight ice tea obsession. Service was great. I can’t believe I have never been here, particularly considering I live about a half of a mile away.
-One random night, I made a pretty Cobb salad. Or my loose interpretation of a Cobb salad. Cooking has been low on the priority list recently.
-I went vacationing in the Turks and Caicos islands. I’ve now had the absolutely insane luck to have vacationed here multiple times and I still think its the most beautifully perfect beach I have ever been to. We stayed at the Tuscany on Grace Bay beach (c/o of the generosity of my uncle – thank youuuuu!) and enjoyed days filled with reading, snorkeling, kayaking, eating, and taking naps. The good life.
-I attended a most amazing family wedding at the Omni William Penn. My little cousin Emily was married to her high school sweetheart Eryk and I had the pleasure of being in her bridal party. The wedding weekend was a dream and filled with love and family and lots of dancing. I hope to blog about this one in more detail as it was just incredible!
And that was my April. Sweet for certain.
