Last day.

Good morning readers...

So, today is my last day of work at Brooklyn Public Library. It's a bittersweet ending - I've been given a lot of opportunities to grow as a librarian at the library and made some lovely friends. But, it's time to go.

Tim and I finished packing yesterday at 4:30 and celebrated with, appropriately enough, Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale... so super tasty! Then we had a lovely walk to The Vanderbilt, a delicious restaurant in Brooklyn, just about a mile from our apartment. Click on the link to see their menu and go there - awesome happy hour drinks AND noms!

I also took some photos on Wednesday evening just before and after getting my bangs trimmed of some of my favorite places along my walk. Here is my favorite girlie store Flirt!
I once received a great skirtificate and designed a skirt! They have amazing clothes and accessories. I still have a wallet that I bought in 2005 - granted, it's taped up with library tape now, but I cannot let go of it. There is a little shop on Coventry in Cleveland Heights that appears to have a similar philosophy and style to Flirt called Blush Boutique... ah, so girlie.

Here is a delicious little food shop that I will be visiting for the last time today - Blue Apron Foods. I think I've spent more money here over the last 4 or 5 years than any other place in Brooklyn. A great selection of olives, charcuterie, breads, desserts, cheeses. And everyone in the store is super friendly. I hope I can find a place just like them in Cleveland.

And I'm really going to miss my DerbyFit girls - I'll definitely keep you updated and hopefully will send updates on my quest to become a Burning River Roller Girl... we'll see.

It's hard to say goodbye to Brooklyn. But I'm ready. Thank you Brooklyn for a mostly wonderful 5 years. Unless anything ultra exciting happens in the next 24 hours, like kitty growing an awesome afro with chops, I'll next be posting from our new home. Let the excitement begin!
