sailboat jamesrope statueofliberty handsondeck bridges erin3 sails

yesterday, james surprised me with a celebratory morning sail around the new york city harbor. there was sunshine and a breeze and mimosas and we got to wave hello to our favorite green giant. i’m starting my 28th year with a sunburned nose and chapped lips. wouldn’t want it any other way.
and don’t you worry: there was also a tiramisu cake twice the size of my head. thank you sisters and friends.
