Beth and I recently spent an afternoon with Angie at her apartment on the Plaza. She has an enchanting place on the 8th floor within walking distance of the museum and overlooking the grand shopping district.
Personally, I've never been a city person, but after visiting this lofty space, I was pretty taken with the idea of living in the city.
We explored the Kaufman Gardens
and had lunch at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art. I felt like I was on vacation, and the day was a getaway from my regular life, not a typical meal and shopping with friends.
When we arrived, Angie had a fruit plate for us.
And a thoughtful gift.
This apartment is only temporary, Angie is a country girl too and is looking for a home with some land after her wedding date in August. Although, with that vista from the living and dining rooms, this apartment doesn't feel small or closed in like most apartments I've ever lived in. The view is such an expansive space, that her rooms feel larger because of it.
And of course, they are filled with beautiful things. Her decor is light and airy too.
I don't know how I've lived in this area for so many years and have never explored the Plaza, except for a few shops here and there. The Nelson has this gorgeous dining room, that truly made me feel like I was a world traveler.
It was a quite a special day, with special friends.
I hope I get another day to visit and pretend to be a city girl before Angie and her fiance buy their dream house together.
