Sometimes it’s still hard for me to believe that I don’t live in the city anymore. For example, two weekends ago, we decided to spontaneously head to Tod’s Point Beach to watch the sunset, something that would have been so foreign to me just a year ago. Don’t get me wrong, we would still go for nightly walks to watch the sunset but it would be among honking cars and thousands of people.
Today, these evening outings feel almost like a mini vacation. The views can be breathtaking and often there are only a few other people around us, if any at all. It makes all of the times that I miss New York worth it to live out here in Connecticut.
This week has been insane and I’m hoping we’ll have a sliver of free time over the weekend to make it to the beach. It really does soothe the soul!
