This week’s Week In Scraps is mostly dedicated to the trip I took up north to Maine for my cousin Briana’s wedding. I don’t get to see my extended family too often, and this trip made me realize that I want to see them more than just once or twice a year. It’s so nice to have such a joyous occasion to gather around, but I’m looking forward to going up north with no agenda except for a few days on a lake, the ocean, or hanging out somewhere in the woods (shocking words for this city girl, huh?).
- There’s a new coffee shop on my block called re.union. I’m 100000% excited about it because until then, there was really no coffee shop on the way to work. I’ve had the chance to talk to the owners a few times and they’re awesome people and really are here to keep the spirit of the neighborhood.
- Molly and Trent came up the night before I left for Maine and I showed them around Williamsburg (not the real Williamsburg, but ya know). We went to Space ninety 8, aka Urban Outfitters and took some photo booth photos. Trent insisted on Sepia; good call dude.
- Briana and Brandon’s wedding program was very…”them.” Fun, casual, and full of authentic love. I’d never met Brandon, but seeing him and Briana’s relationship unfold from a far (read: on Facebook), they just seemed to be in love with each other in a way that I hadn’t seen from many other people.
- Oh, speaking of weddings, apparently miss Briana’s false eyelashes didn’t hold up through the ceremony. After I walked though the receiving line, her sister the maid of honor handed me the falsies and said, “Can you do something with these?” I went ahead and put them in my makeup case, only to discover them a few days later. Bri, you looked beautiful with and without them. ;)
- Road trips = shitty coffee (Starbucks) and a poor nutritional choices (milk duds and bbq chips)
- After 8 or so hours in the car on the way back to NYC, we were STARVING and found ourselves in Connecticut. RJ always talks about Connecticut pizza, so I shot him a text and he recommended Pepe’s. It hit the spot, but I’m not sure what all the hype was about. Sorry, Rg.
