So I have decided to start a new thing in an effort to gain some consistency on this blog, welcome to Favorite Fridays where I plan to share a few things that brightened my week. Kind of a feel good type of exercise. Right? And as I seem to have an affinity for all things involving alliteration I figured I would call it something so cute it makes my teeth ache just thinking about it. Hence the name. And hey, it could be worse. I almost landed on Five Favorites For Fridays. Much worse.
Welcome. Aren’t Fridays just the most hopeful day of the week?
But overall, it has been a good – albeit busy – week. My boy and I decided to start it off right last Sunday with a trip to The Met. After deliberating for well over a year, we finally decided to become members. Which basically means it is my new clubhouse and you are welcome to find me there any time that I am not working or sleeping. And the best part, besides the 18th century Parisian palace interiors and King Henry VIII’s final set of armor and the way my boy was in raptures over the display of vintage guns? That would be the ceiling. It was… is… breathtaking. If only they would let me lie on the floor and gaze to my heart’s content.
European dreaming… as usual. But does it ever really get old? No.

Light fixture paradise so intense that I almost slipped and hit my head. It was nearly too much to take in. But somehow, I did it.
And don’t judge me for being SO BEHIND THE TIMES… but I am loving my Kindle iPhone App that I finally downloaded this week. Now on my commute to and from work each day, I find myself caught up in the world of Elizabeth Bennet as she stumbles her way through her feelings towards Mr. Darcy; instead of the reality of the stranger breathing on my cheek on a rainy day that most subway lines are under construction and not running consistently, causing massive numbers of people to storm their way onto too few train cars. Trust me, it is a much needed escape.
