Took a me day

Brady needed to study lots this weekend, and typically I spend my saturdays at my desk, catching up on work, by today I took a day for me. I wish I was better about taking saturdays to explore this amazing city and get inspired for the next week. I really need to do it more! It was the most beautiful and refreshing day! 

 

Started the morning off with a very nutritious breakfast, pancakes and homemade syrup. Because I actually don't like syrup... unless it's homemade. Then I'll think about it.  Also, only made one heart pancake and while it was adorable, it was straight goo in the center. So there.

Stop one, La Mercerie. The most perfect and gorgeous cafe that had my jaw on the floor. I mm excited to go back when I can really enjoy it. I just stopped in for a tea to-go, and to snap a few pics.

One side is a cafe, the other The Guild. Gorgeous home decor and handmade pottery.

Next stop, Purl Soho! My new favorite store that I can't stay in longer than 15 minutes or I will go broke. (I really wish it was easier on the wallet!) 

i jusg popped in for some fabric so I can put my new sewing machine to use! I just bought a few scrap pieces to get started, although I still have zero idea when I'm making.

 100% sure everyone always thinks I'm a tourist the way I walk around taking pictures of every corner. Nope, just love to document!! And a sucker for a beautiful photo.       Made my way up to Blick, which is always dangerous. But I pretty much always justify those purchases because I need them to work!! So it's necessary. After Blick my mom called, and I ended up walking all the way up to Michaels. It was a beautiful walk and nice exercise so I'm not complaining.

I loved today. Sometimes it's good to spend sometime with yourself, just doing your thing. Maybe I'll make it a Saturday habit. Except hopefully Brady will be joining me more often than not. 💗
