Last month our youngest, Grant, graduated from Saint Louis University and started a new job in … New York City!
You guys, I’m not gonna lie, this development has been tough on this mom, but he is absolutely living his dream, so it’s all good. It’s great, actually.
He is living in Brooklyn for the summer so I thought I would show you a few pictures of his building, which Grant describes this way:
It’s “pre-war” which means it’s really cool and ornate but also means you have to run the shower for five minutes to get it hot.”
Here are a couple of views from the street.
Can you stand it? The pediment over the door? The fire escapes? It’s all so Brooklyn!
I love the iron railings and the tile.
And all this detail in a hallway. Don’t you wish they still built buildings like this?
His room came furnished, so all he had to do was add his own bedding. Oh, and he brought that Kansas state flag from home. I loved that.
His office is actually in the middle of Manhattan. Columbus Circle to be exact.
Before he left we threw a little graduation/going-away party for him. I didn’t get a lot of pictures of the party, but I made sure to get pics of the cake and the cookies I ordered.
The cookies, in particular, turned out great. So, so fun.
So big changes here of late. What’s going on in your world?
