scenes from the weekend

This past weekend was meant to be a restful and relaxing weekend. And for the most part, it was. Even though I didn't get to sleep in either day, it was nice not to be on the go for Saturday-Sunday.

L to R clockwise: [1] eyelet & goodbye summer. fall days are here. [2] I saw this sign on the street and was so, so very tempted to pick one up. [3] We had tornado warnings in NYC on Saturday night. This seemed appropriate for a rainy night in. [4] beautiful Sunday night view of the Upper West Side, close to sunset. Ah.

I, for one, can't argue.

scenes from the weekend

It was so nice to have a long weekend before the fall gets crazy. I was in New Hampshire for the weekend to celebrate Labor Day and I got to try out a new restaurant I haven't been to before: Parker's Maple Barn. I had a peach-raspberry cream cheese stuffed french toast that was better than I could have imagined in my wildest dreams. Really, it was so good. And, it was served with home fries, which I was very skeptical about that combination, but it turned out to be a brilliant combo. The only bad news is that this was their "Flavor of the Month" so if I go again, I'll be out of luck on recreating this heavenly meal.  Either way, if you find yourself in NH, I would recommend it!

Ironically, I didn't take any pictures of the meal, on the premises of the restaurant. You can see, it's a pretty fun place all around.
