I snapped this picture this morning as Jackson and I were leaving our neighborhood playground, where I spend approximately 2/3 of my waking life and Jackson spends about 3/4 of his. The trees are blooming throughout Brooklyn and today was one of those perfect weather days — we get about 10 or 15 a year — where it wasn’t too hot or too cold or too rainy. The sun was shining and it was comfortable enough to wear pretty much whatever you wanted.
May is shaping up to be a big birthday month. I celebrated the birthdays of three friends this week, including one house party, one cocktail party at a restaurant, and tonight I’m taking a friend to a new jazz club to celebrate her birthday. Monday is my mom’s birthday, holla, and I’ve just been invited to more friends’ birthday dinner/parties later this month. I guess I am fond of people born in May (and April). The rest of you are OK, too, I guess. I liked the outfit I wore last night so I took a dorky bathroom selfie which I am shamelessly posting, mostly because I want to recommend the skirt, which is seriously marked down at Anthropologie and works especially well for those of us with curvy hips and/or a squishy belly. It sucks everything in and is basically like wearing Spanx, but super cute, high-waisted shiny, camo-pattern. (I don’t get an affiliate commission on that or anything — I just really like the skirt and thought you should know about it).
Anyway, what else? We made it through Wedding Week! Hopefully most of you enjoyed it and those who didn’t can rest assured that I won’t put you through another week devoted to wedding content for a whole year. Now let’s all go pop some champagne and celebrate.
