HH Goes to the Tropics!
For those of you that have been reading this blog since 2007 (or any substantial amount of time, really), this news probably isn't too surprising:
We're moving to St. Maarten!
In the three years I've had Happy Herbivore, we've moved from Boston to Los Angeles to New York City. It's been a whirlwind adventure — one that will be taking us out of the country and to a tiny island in the tropics for the next year.
Scott's job is taking us there and we're excited about the prospect of living in a new place, trying on a new culture and learning a new language.
It's been wonderful to be in New York City for the last 15 months. I've enjoyed being lost in this amazing city, eating my heart out, seeing old friends and making new ones. There really is no place on Earth like New York City and I will surely miss my life here. Admittedly, I came home to heal and find my way. I felt so lost when we left Los Angeles. I knew that I loved cooking, but I hated being a lawyer — and now I have my own cookbook! So perhaps the timing is right then.
(Cruisers: Don't worry, we're still on for the Happy Herbivore cruise! I'll be flying into Miami to set sail with everyone — I'll just come with a bit of a tan...)
I keep telling myself my year down there will be like Julia's Child's "My Life in France" except without all the butter. and meat.
