I left early Tuesday morning for a few days of meetings in a sleepy little town in Northwestern NJ.
The town is chock full of amazing restaurants and bistros and I definitely ate my way through the past few days.
Hanger steak on Farro Risotto with sauteed kale at Urban Table was quite possibly the best thing to hit my taste buds in the past 6 months.
The second night we went to Roots Steakhouse where I devoured a Petite Filet Mignon and indulged in some whipped potatoes and grilled asparagus. It was divine.
There's a part of me that loves rolling my luggage out the door and heading out on these adventures. I enjoy my job. Then there's the Mama in me whose heart is heavy while she's packing and is silently counting down the hours until she can get home to her family. I'm a little Jekyl and Hyde when it comes to being a working mom.
I arrived home last night to a sweet "welcome home" note from my daughter, and a warm cozy evening with the ones I love most.
I'm grateful it's Friday, thankful that I'm working somewhat locally today, and looking forward to those two precious days we get to have together.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
