Scenes from our weekend.

Just thinking about last weekend makes me smile. The weather here was absolutely beautiful, and Brian and I made the most of it by being tourists in our own city. And if you know me, you know that not much makes me happier than that.

On Saturday, we admired Halloween decor on brownstone lined streets in Hoboken, ate cannoli on the pier while enjoying the amazing views of Manhattan, and met my friend's beautiful new baby boy, Jakob. After browsing flea markets in Hell's Kitchen and the department stores on Fifth Avenue, Brian and I concluded our day by ordering in Thai and watching hours of Friends. Sunday morning began with a delicious breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien. We tasted every jam and spread on our plate of freshly baked breads and devoured our frittata as we planned our afternoon. After our pots of coffee were emptied, we wove our way through the Lower East Side to the Brooklyn Bridge. After crossing the bridge, our eating adventures continued at the Smorgasburg in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The steamed buns from Bite Size Kitchen were delicious!

It's weekends like this that make me so grateful to get to live where I do. New York City, you will forever have my heart.
