Right after I unpacked on my return from Europe, I had to pack another suitcase because we are off on a romantic getaway to celebrate N’s birthday. I can’t tell you what the final destination of the trip is because it’s a surprise for N, and I don’t want him to wander onto the blog and discover it ahead of time.
But I’ll post photos of the secret final destination tomorrow.
On the negative side, my favorite restaurant in St. Louis has closed. It turned out to be too hard to maintain in the difficult economic times. The irony is that it closed down the same weekend when its very talented chef won a prestigious cooking award. Our trip starts and ends in St. Louis, and I hoped to visit this great restaurant as a final stop on the journey. Unfortunately, St.Louis didn’t manage to preserve this chic and expensive restaurant.
