we were away last week, adventuring out west, and arrived home just in time to welcome my sweet parents from south carolina. i love most when we wander through weekends, letting curiosities and whims fill our days.
and wander we did -- through the upper west side and the village and brooklyn flea, through union square and the flatiron and chinatown and chelsea market. and how we feasted -- on motorino pizza, on waffle sandwiches and croque madames at buvette, on stone fruit bruschetta on eataly's rooftop, on pork soup dumplings at joe's, on sticky toffee pudding at tea & sympathy, and how we celebrated -- christy's belated birthday with a central park picnic, christopher's early 30th birthday with a tasting menu at alta, our families gathered in surprise.
it was heart swells and pristine weather and new york city's late summer song.
