Today Luke & Romy had a daddy-daughter-day, and I visited my good friend Lara in Sydney. I got to drool over her new things from Ikea, try a Nespresso coffee + a different type of herbal tea, drive through the city in her fancy grown up car, go on a lunch date & stroll along King St. It is always nice spending time in the city, and it was really nice to explore a different suburb this visit. I usually stick to what I know, but lately I have been making more of a conscious effort to try new things and step outside my comfort zone. It still feels really odd to be away from Romy for an entire day, but it was good for me to have some time for myself. Luke has been suggesting something like this for a few months now but I haven't been ready (other than the occasional shift at the cafe). So many wonderful and exciting things are happing in Lara's life, it was very lovely to catch up on everything and I think I did a pretty good job to not gush about Romy the entire time (like I tend to do)!
