The ‘burgh

29 Apr

In April, I signed a year-long lease with my best friend, Helen, for the first time since leaving Jamaica over five years ago. It feels darn good to be putting down roots in this historic town.

Helen and I decided to throw a moving-in/Helen’s birthday party!!!!!!!!

We stocked up on everything; had Thai food catered from our favorite restaurant, Le Thai Cafe, curated a mojito drink making station with Martin, the fabulous bartender, and I was trash. As in, the trash person.  We learned some huge lessons (Although, really, when aren’t we learning lessons?).  Overall, it was a raging success!
