Did you get this all at Ferry Plaza?

Oh, sweetie... Mike and I had oysters and cheese and duck confit last week at a little place up the street, and I thought of you, and I miss you... I'm so glad you had a great "hooky" day, we all need those from time to time. :)

So when are you coming to New York again? We're talking about roadtripping to Blue Hill at Stone Barns in the Fall...
