We go way back.
I know that sudden noises make her jumpy and she knows that birds, especially the pigeon variety, creep me out.
She knows what I'm thinking, which is scary, but also pretty cool.
She just gets me. And I get her.
Before one of Sassy's dates with her man, one of her friends told her, Put your lips on, baby.
One simple little nudge became a coined phrase for us.
So now, when we know adventure awaits, that phrase sums it up... Put your lips on, baby.
So we began Sassy's trip with a champagne toast.
J and Sassy were friends before J and I were friends.
Now we're all friends and I like that.
My Selena curl tried to be classy at our champagne toast.
Black + White cookies are one of our favorite ways to welcome friends to the city.
We got an early start the next morning.
First stop, Union Square where this leaf literally floated right into Allison's hand.
pretty Union Square
Next stop, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
We tried on a big fat diamond and then J taught Allison how to spot hipsters.
We made a stop by Mast Brothers Chocolate.
Serrano Pepper is the way to go.
J was feeling a bit tired at this point.
Modca was a great little coffee shop + bakery that gave us the sugar kick we needed.
Samson by Regina Spektor was playing in the background.
It was a perfect moment with two of the people who know me best... and love me anway.
