Ladies of Leisure


This week I was able to catch-up with my college roommate, Stephanie, during her visit to the States from Ghana. Despite our countless weekly emails, it has been about four years since we last saw each other, and so much has changed in both of our lives since our college days. She is back in her native Ghana, while I returned home to Long Island after college, and both of us have changed jobs over the years while trying to find our respective career paths.

Our day started off with a visit to Americana Manhasset (the “Miracle Mile”) in Manhasset, NY. I must admit this is one of my favorite places on Long Island! This luxury shopping center has every store you could want to browse in from Louis Vuitton to J. Crew.

After some retail therapy, we grabbed lunch at Cipollini. I had never eaten there, but while scoping out the menu, we saw a small pizza that the waitstaff brought out for another customer. We didn’t need to look any further. We ordered and shared the Margherita pizza, which was perfect – thin crust, sweet tomatoes, and rich cheese.


The time passed so quickly, but we had a beautiful day of chatting and shopping!

Congratulations Stephanie and Kwesi on your engagement!
