I’m here! Traveling went pretty much as expected and I arrived a few minutes early. I should have packed the gloves, scarf and hat because my flight, car ride and hotel room were all FREEZING!!! Thank goodness I packed a sweater!
My flight went right through lunch hour, so I packed one to eat on the plane. I debated saving this until I arrived (and I also debated eating when I got here) but I got really hungry on the flight and decided to bring it out – photography and all. I am a little shy about food photography on airplanes because it’s such a tight space, but I just thought what the heck. No sense going hungry because of a little shyness!
I packed a salad with lettuce, which I dressed in olive oil and vinegar before I left, leftover roasted veggies and more of that organic grilled chicken! I sure stretched those for a number of meals.
Blueberries and watermelon
And only the best – Oikos and flax
I just started the book Housekeeping that Gena sent me a while back. I spent the whole flight reading it. It’s a strange one, but I’m already hooked on the style.
My lunch actually didn’t fill me up that well. Well, I guess it did, but I felt a little sick after finishing and still feel kinda empty. Perhaps I am dehydrated. [Gulp, gulp some water]
We hit major traffic getting from the airport and I didn’t arrive until 2PM (3PM EST) so I was so glad I ate. Hallelujah for the iPhone for traffic entertainment! I was reading a little Hangry at the time 🙂
Finally made it to my room with just 30 minutes to set up camp before I am leaving again to meet up with some readers! I love hotel rooms, but catch-22 wise, there’s always a city to explore outside of them so I hate being in them for too long!
Check out my view of Navy Pier!
I am meeting my contact Teresa and the Boca PR team for dinner at a totally awesome surprise place. Can’t wait!!
