oh this weekend. we laughed, we cried, we laughed some more. we ate some chocolate. all in the name of the great 2012 new york city apartment search. that's right folks, brian is moving to nyc and we need to find him an apartment. good riddance long distance relationship! (although i will miss the sunsets along the hudson on the train ride up there). we focused mainly on brooklyn and i'm happy to say we have a number one choice and a great fallback option. a successful weekend indeed. the agony of what an apartment search in new york brings was quelled by chocolate, red wine, pasta, pasta, and more pasta (including this recipe i tried, which was awesome), along with a visit with a local fire station dog. while i can't say i'm looking forward to the moving process, i can say i'm looking forward to living by my boyfriend for the first time in almost three-and-a-half years. yes, i can definitely say i'm looking forward to that.
