Good Morning Brooklyn

Once a year this city calls me.. it calls to many.

And every year I’m convinced I could live there.. the gospel music floating in through the open windows envelopes me. The energy seduces.. there’s this aching sadness when I leave.

Even the 5am street fight below my window does not deter me..

This trip was my first real Brooklyn experience. S or (FWMMR whom you can read more about here) recently moved to a changing Brooklyn neighborhood. Shops are opening, restaurants drawing in the crowds. My Brooklyn food filled adventures call for their own separate posts.. to come!

We wandered in and out of the city…

Window shopping… eating… people watching… more eating.

Like I gained 8 pounds eating.. cleanse needed.

S may have been over my picture taking and ooogling of her neighborhood streets 🙂

Of course, Brooklyn exploration would not be complete without a cheese shop stop at Wedge. I mean, you can take the girl out of the Midwest, but the cheese obsession never dies… Cheese, cured meats, jams and Sprecher soda; hi I’m moving next door.

While I’d give many things for new wardrobe to have come out of this trip, I’d say we had shopping success!

As a former sock hater, I now have an obsession with colorful socks..

Anyone else have a sock obsession?
