East Village story

Friends, what beautiful weather we’re having in Atlanta these days! I love both sun and rain, and it seems we’re having both in equal measure this April. During last night’s thunderstorm, Bro was so scared that he actually hopped into the shower with me for a minute before he realized that he was going to be standing under streams of water.

Weather in New York was significantly less nice, but that didn’t stop me from walking around Brooklyn and all over Manhattan and seeing friends in the city. I somehow ended up spending a lot of time near or around the Canal Street station, but I ventured uptown to see some of my friends from college, and even further up for brunch with my friend M. I visited two of David Chang’s establishments (does that make me a Momophile?) and D and I went to Central, Owl’s Head, and High Line Parks, too. And for my birthday, I went to Peel’s with a group of old and new friends, and when we got back to Brooklyn, D’s parents surprised me with an ice cream cake. Fact: this was the first ice cream cake I’ve ever had, and it was delicious.
