All work and no play makes Mliae a dull girl…

Sometimes, after a super long day, a girl just needs to unwind.

I found myself sitting alone, on the upper restaurant deck of the commuter train. The late evening sunset was gorgeous, and I could finally sink back into my leather seat and take a long deep breathe.

The day had consisted of meetings, marketing plans and a bums rush to the finish line. Maybe a teensy stop off for a fashion fix.

As I sat, I reflected. Then i just let the day slide off me and enjoyed the view.

Ok, this girl needs champagne. Stat. I clacked my way down to the bar and requested a glass and a treat. So rainbow marshmallows they supplied! An unlikely pair, I’ll give you that. But it went perfectly as hands-down, the best comfort food you’re going to get on a train. Perfect.

Now, time to kick back and relax.

Thanks for reading!

      It was 🙂 The best that the train had to offer and just what the Dr. ordered!

    The upper restaurant deck of a commuter train?! Good grief! Well, it certainly wasn’t a London or Budapest commuter train. 🙂
    This is one of those nice posts (that I never dare to write because they’re so personal) that give you a glimpse into somebody else’s life for a brief moment… and for some reason it’s great to read. I don’t know why. 🙂

      Thank you so much for your lovely words! 🙂 I don’t really know what to say, because you are so kind, but…Thank you 🙂 I kind of took a risk with this post because it does show an intimate side to me, and I never would have thought that it would be the kind of thing that people actually wanted to read! Also, you are right – it was neither London nor Budapest 😉
