This beachy-vacation weather has been so relaxing compared to the wild atmosphere of New York… but oh how I do love that atmosphere 😉  I’ll miss these lazy days spent in North Carolina.

Another thing I’ll be missing??  My little girl– Loki 😀

I rescued this girl from a shelter a few years ago as an undergrad, and she follows me EVERYWHERE.

Unfortunately, last month I moved from a pet-loving apartment to an anti-pet apartment in The Village.  She stays with my ‘rents for the time being and boy do we miss each other…  but it’s okay because she loves the company of their dogs!!

 The Pooch Trio!!  Quite the menagerie, eh?

These dogs mean the world to me, and living in a space without them is difficult.  I grew up surrounded by dogs, so it takes a lot of time to get used to coming home without being bombarded with doggie kisses, paws, and general all over l-o-v-i-n’!

Even as I write this post, Loki is sitting on the couch across from me creepily peering lovingly gazing at me with those buggy sweet chihuahua eyes.  So much love, sista.  So much love.

Other than dogs, my day was filled with a fishing trip at the newly renovated Jennette’s Pier, I finished reading Michael Pollan’s In the Defense of Food (highly suggest!), then went to dinner with the ‘rents to celebrate my mom’s birthday.

Successful day, successful vacation.

Can’t wait to see Gus tomorrow in New York!  He leaves California at 7am, so hopefully he won’t be super cranky when he lands 😉

He’s just a foot and a half slightly taller than I am.

Off to read blogs for a bit with a little bit of THIS by my side…

Where would you want to go if you were visiting New York City for a week?

I’m trying to think of fun places to take him!
