One day I said to Nate... I'm taking the evening off and am going to have some alone time. I don't do this often, so he didn't complain. It actually ended up not being an evening of being alone, really, but it started out that way. I had some errands to run down in Rockefeller Square, so I took the opportunity to see the tree, and walk up 5th Ave to see some of the window displays. I also popped into GAP to buy myself a few things, something else I never do :) I had a lovely walk up 5th Ave, and across central park south back to the subway, where I headed back uptown to meet Nate and his sister Kierstin, who had just gotten into town, for dinner at one of our favorite places. They took a long time to get there, so I got to sit at the bar and read my book, which was awesome! After a delicious dinner, I said goodbye and headed over to Starbucks for a birthday get together. We didn't last too long at Starbucks because so many people came, so a friend offered her place. I wish I had pics because it was a little comical. But regardless of the space constraints, we had a wonderful time chatting away, as usual.
