Back in the (Different) Borough: A Weekend Morning Stroll Through DUMBO

HI friends,

I hope your weekend’s going well! I met up with an old friend of mine from junior high this morning in DUMBO (an acronym for the Brooklyn neighborhood that stands for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass”) to help her look for wedding dresses. (SQUEEEE!!!)

Anyway, DUMBO. It’s the cutest area—even when the weather is crappy, which it was this morning. I wanted to share some photos of the stroll we took after shopping here:

^^This cute little pooch was patiently waiting for his owner to come out of that store. I couldn't resist taking a photo.

^^If you squint REALLY hard, you can see the Statue of Liberty in the middle. I can't wait to go back on a clear day and take my good camera.

^^All of my favorite mommy bloggers have been talking about the "the pop-up pool in Brooklyn." Well today, I finally got to see it!

And that’s DUMBO! I’d recommend a trip to that area if you’re visiting Manhattan–it’s got really spectacular views of the city, and a lot of great restaurants. It was just a short walk from there to Brooklyn Heights, where we walked along the famous Montague Street and ate breakfast at the Heights Cafe. (The Portobello Omelet is seriously delish! I’ve definitely had better Bloody Mary’s in my life, though.)

Bis bald, friends! Happy weekend!
