On Sunday, I went out to Brooklyn to go visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Cackles was in town so she, the BF and I had brunch at one of our favorites spots, 44 1/2, and headed out to Brooklyn. The weekend prior was the Cherry Blossom Festival held annually. Thankfully the cherry blossoms were still in bloom. It was an amazing sight! I think last year we must have gone at a slightly different time because what was in bloom last year was not in bloom this year and vice/versa. I'm so lucky to live in New York where I can have the rough and tough concrete jungle one minute and then a short train ride and I'm witness to a scene as beautiful as anywhere in the country. It's an oasis from the storm. I wanted to share the following photos with you so that you can get a glimpse of what the BBG is all about. It was a truly beautiful afternoon with two of my favorite people. xoxo.
