This past Friday my sister and I celebrated our 26th with an out of town visit from our mom. Although I’ve enjoyed coordinating small get togethers and dinners with friends in the past, I cherished the quiet time I got to spend with my mom-riding the East River Ferry, hitting our favorite spots (Sweetwater brunch, I am looking at you), and doing all those little things I miss when my parents are a plane ride away. She arrived back in Michigan last night, yet we have already begun to make a list for next time of all we wish to see together in this electric city.
Momofuku Milk Bar’s Birthday Cake cake! I have been eyeing this for years, as I am a frequent consumer of their Birthday Cake truffles, and was certainly not disappointed. Thumbs up, Christina Tosi!
The most delicate wrapping paper. I could really go for that mint chocolate chip cone right now…
My sister Kate surprised me with Catbird’s alphabet rings (left)! Those on the right were a present from us to my mom this past Christmas.
