On my way to work this morning I saw happy young couples packing up cars, instagrams of plane tickets to Paris and facebook photos from Hawaii. This city is officially in vacation mode! Happy (almost) Memorial Day!
I was lucky enough to catch Jessica Soffer, author of Tomorrow there will be Apricots, for brunch at The Butcher's Daughter. The weather was perfect. The conversation was endless. And I had the distinct pleasure of asking an author I admire about what it takes to make a story.
Adore Floral is an adorable flower shop on Lafayette Street between Bond & Bleecker Streets. It's a favorite stop of mine when I need some higher quality buds for a dinner party or just want something a little more festive around the house. They have a wonderful selection of bright colors and varietals and the staff is always helpful when answering questions about flower care. I'm guest blogging for the Birchbox Blog this week (link at the full article), so check back later today for tips & tricks for assembling an easy, Spring bouquet featuring Adore Floral flowers (and checkout yesterdays' post on Colorblocking!).
