Mother’s Day is this weekend and it will be my first one celebrating as a mother. We have family visiting this weekend so Jimmy surprised me with an early celebration a few weeks ago. It was so sweet and made me feel so special.
Jimmy planned my first Mother’s Day around my favorite things. A walk to Cobble Hill Park was first on the agenda. With Nema on her leash and James in his stroller, we were on our way! We strolled by beautiful brownstones and budding flowers stopping by the corner coffee shop named Tekoa. I got an iced coffee while Jimmy sipped on a hibiscus tea. We found an empty park bench where we shared a delicious croissant.
As our appetite grew, we headed back to our apartment where we could drop off Nema. Since it was a cooler day, we chose to sit inside rather than an outdoor patio where dogs are allowed. On our way back, we stumbled upon the most beautiful streets right along the perimeter of the park. The townhouses look onto the greens which reminded both of us of a European park.
We ate brunch at June, a cute little spot on Court Street. I indulged in the sour dough french toast while Jimmy ate the Frog in a Hole. Our friends live right around the block from us and ended up going to brunch at June too, at the exact same time! Such a funny coincidence. On chilly summer nights, I will throw on this light weight sweater. It’s perfect with shorts, over a dress, or with white jeans. As pictured here, I wore the sweater with a neckerchief which I am loving this season. I try to incorporate a scarf when I can – it adds a touch of timelessness when paired with a simple outfit.
