My horoscope Friday said I should surround myself with nurturing figures for the weekend. Fortunately, my mom and aunt were due to visit from out of town, so that was already in motion! Saturday was filled with some of my favorite things to do in Williamsburg. We migrated from brunch at Harefield Road (which has the best all-inclusive brunch deal in town for $14) to my favorite thrift destination, L Train Vintage. I bought some cut-off Levi's shorts and opted out of the one-piece '80s gem below—should I go back for it? After working off our eggs and bloody Mary's with shopping, we headed to Smorgasburg, a massive outdoor food festival on the East River. Paying mind to the essential food groups, we shared Dough Donuts and Home Frite fries, which came in a handy sauce-wielding container. To add a little culture to the grub-filled afternoon, we visited the City Reliquary, a quirky museum filled with New York–themed knick-knacks, artwork and historical relics. Sunday, the sun was out in full force (finally!) so we packed up Monti for a picnic lunch in Prospect Park. It was the most splendid visit with my favorite people. What else can a girl ask for?
Mom, thanks for being the best one I could ask for. Happy Mother's Day!
