What I thought was a brilliantly warm clothing combination (peacoat + this leather vest I bought three years ago) put me into a state of ‘I am freezing because I do not know how to dress for the cold, nor does my body/brain understand how to function in this weather’. I guess these past six years in california have really spoiled me weather-wise, because even though it is my last week here in D.C, all I want to do is stay inside, guzzle down hot chocolate, read a book and wrap a blanket around myself. I’m sad to leave, for obvious and not-so-obvious reasons, but per usual and as is with most things in life— all good things must come to an end. I spent last weekend in NYC (thanks again gabby for letting me stay with you!) and had an amazing time exploring the city.
