My knight in shining armor arrived at my door bearing a beautiful bouquet of flowers:
Each of us opened our gifts from the other before heading off to the local art museum to take a spin through the galleries before dinner. My presents make me smile, not only because I love them, but because they prove how well The Writer knows me and how thoughtful he is. He ordered in chocolates from Sockerbit, a NYC candy store that I'd visited and raved about last summer. They are delicious! He also found The Sartorialist's book of street style photos for me. Hello, endless inspiration!
After the art museum, which was quite enjoyable, we continued on for a late dinner at Kozmo's, a reclaimed laundromat. What used to be a very utilitarian space is now a spacious, yet cozy, dining establishment. The floor and parts of the walls that aren't exposed brick are perfectly stained to reflect a familiar glow and the booths are big enough to lie down in, not that we tried.
When we'd finished our scrumptious meals, we came back to my apartment for champagne and strawberries and other desserts I'd spent the day making. I might've gone a little overboard on the sweets, since we still have quite a few left over. It was fun having a variety and I'm pretty sure The Writer was in sugar heaven.
