the other morning, josh and i took off on a bright and early breakfast date on our bikes. sometimes nights can be hard with the kids to break away, especially when your sitter has a social life too! so we try to get creative and change it up sometimes.
this amazing spring weather that is finally showing its face (THANK YOU SO MUCH SPRING!) it kind of felt too good to be true! i could not wipe the smile off my face all morning.
we started our bike ride with a stop on the upper west side’s barney greengrass to grab some breakfast to take to the park. we got some bagels and smoked salmon with eggs and caramelized onions and some cheese blintzes (they are supposedly the best in the city! they were good, but they don’t beat my own mama’s. ;)
we ended up sitting on a bench for a little while after eating breakfast on the bandshell just to talk. i don’t know if it’s the dancer in me or what, but i always somehow gravitate towards the floor and end up sitting on the ground at some point. i don’t ever notice until people mention it. ha! josh took this photo of me mid sentence just gabbing away while sitting on the ground. i was like, “what?!” and he was all, “i just really really like you like this.” and it kind of made my entire day. :)
you know what else made my day? BLOSSOMS.
NICE TO HAVE YOU, SPRING! here’s to a billion more bike rides and sandal wearing days and good moments in central park for the next several months.
i’m wearing this sweater from jcrew (who, by the way, is having a huge sale right now through the weekend up to 75% off using the code THEBEST). my sunglasses are from free people a few seasons back but similar ones here. shoes here and jeans here. we’re wearing bern helmets and josh is wearing this windbreaker.
