“but they’re not my girl”

Just brought her to the airport; she’s on a red-eye back to Vermont for Christmas with her family. (I’m here another few days until I fly to New York.)

Parting was hard, even though I’ll see her again on New Year’s Eve when we both fly back. I had tears in my eyes as she walked away from me to go check in.

I texted her from the train back to the city.

Me:  “Miss you already and love you so much”

Her: “I miss you too i love you too. It was so hard to walk away from you. I was sad”

Me: “But you’re walking TOWARDS your family :) it was hard to see you walk away too though…”

Her: “Yeah yr right but they’re not my girl”

I love her so goddamn much.

Tomorrow brings some house-cleaning and preliminary packing of my own, a trip to Chinatown to get tea for my brother’s Christmas present, and maybe even some baking (no more sweets though, but maybe some Parker rolls?).

Happy weekend y’all.



  1. aww, how sweet.
    goodbyes are always hard, eh?

  2. Bummer you had to say goodbye, especially for the holiday :( I can’t believe you’re going to be that close to me and we’re not going to be able to meet up! Boo.

  3. Awww, that’s so sweet. Being that much in love is beautiful.

  4. Hi, I just found your blog and wanted to say hello and all the best to you and your lady. Beautiful writing, love how you put your heart into it.

  5. We’re still on for some sort of dinner-type-thing, yes?

    • oh yes I’m planning on it!

  6. it’s always hard to be away….esp during the holidays.

    on a side note and quite random, while reading a few of your most recent posts, for some reason i envision julie from ‘julie and julia’. like, when i read your blogs, it is her voice i hear as she typing away about her daily adventures. random i know…but i warned you.

    merry christmas!

    • oh that’s too funny! I haven’t seen the movie yet but I keep meaning to. it’s on my netflix queue now. any movie with both meryl streep and lots of cooking in it is bound to entertain me. now when I watch it I’ll be listening for my voice :)

      merry christmas (belated) to you too! and a happy new year.
