nicki. the crying game.

In between about being on about moving, I’ve had a sad feeling in me about someone I used to know.

I had many appointments today. I was up down and around New York City. At the end of it, I dipped into a half-price happy hour at 3 Sheets Salon and worked on Book. That was super fun. It’s nearly done… you know?

Book is sexy blog tribe. #justsayin

Last night was my first night back in Manhattan after a lot of days away. David and I immediately collected to catch each other up on stories etc.
