Polka Dots & Our Panini Picnic in the Park

What is a lunch break?!

I think that’s a common question asked by people working in the Greater New York City area. Rarely do I get the chance to go “out” to lunch. Most days I just eat at my desk and work through the lunch hour. Multi-tasking. The “bite and type” method.

So for me, days like yesterday are a special treat…

It was gorgeous outside – around 85 and sunny – and we happened to have a 30 minute window in the middle of the day.

In that 30 minutes, we strolled over to our favorite panini lady, picked up fresh paninis, lemonade and gelato, and parked ourselved on a blanket in the Greenwich Commons. It was a dream.




By the time we sat down and began to eat, we only had about 15 minutes to enjoy the sun….but that 15 minutes changed my entire mood for the rest of afternoon. It was re-energizing.

Now I completely understand what all the fuss is about. I’d love to do that every day… Unfortunately, it seems as though I’ll be back at my desk today.

Happy Friday!!
