My husband and I left New York City a year ago. At the time Trent and I were living in the brand new NeWeBu (NorthEastish West Bushwick) neighborhood of Brooklyn. We moved there 2 years ago from Okolona, Ohio (Go Woodchucks!) We loved our jobs. My husband sold artisanal cheese made from a small goat farm we built on our fire escape.

Being a single pasta in NYC wasn’t easy, but Mac was determined. She was going to make it in the big city. She’d done well for herself so far. Mac wasn’t a big star like Spaghetti or Linguine, but people around town were getting to know and love her.
