A Thursday night celebration.

Look at that! I got ambitious and brought my camera along for a little celebration in Greenwich Village last night. Blake came into the city for a quick visit (you know, to his own home) and we made a special occasion out of it. We haven't had the chance to celebrate the completion of my nutrition certification through Tufts - it's been two years and some long, busy weekends/nights in the making, so commemoration was in order. 

The online class format is a tricky one, and not something I took on without thought. I love the classroom. I love sussing things out with fellow students, professors. I love being part of a larger school culture, and I wondered how much I would miss that while taking courses online. I was pleasantly surprised to find how much interaction I had with professors and other students from all over the country, each bringing their own fascinating perspectives. The hardest part, for me, has been the closure on a significant piece of the last two years of our lives; we move on with a whisper. 

And so there was a small toast to the end of that chapter, to being together, to warm May nights, to education and opportunity and figuring out life as we go. 
^^Dove Parlour: the very best happy hour spot in the city, straight out of the 1920s.^^


  1. Congrats on finishing your certification! I remember when you first started the program. (Seriously, have I been reading blogs this many years now?!)

    Love, love this line... "we move on with a whisper" :)

  2. You are too sweet, Urban Wife. Two years! It flies :)


I love hearing from you!
