January 1st marked a new chapter in life for me. After living in Boston for 5 years, LA briefly, then spending the summer in Paris; I decided to make Brooklyn my new home. I've been here just under a month and a half and I couldn't be happier. For the first time in a while I finally feel like I'm in the place I belong.
This is the view from my living room balcony. After having a balcony this summer in Paris I realized how much of a difference it makes to be able to step outside and sip your coffee in the morning. A cigarette is nice here and there too — jk don't smoke.
A home coffee shop was priority on my list. I spend most mornings at City of Saints coffee. It took me a few days to find, but it was love at first sight. I'm very excited for summer to roll around so they can open up that beautiful garage door.
Just a few other favorites, this is AP cafe above and Toby's estate Brooklyn below.
Above is cafe Colette in Williamsburg. You'll find me here almost every Sunday after church at C3 Brooklyn sipping on a Bloody Mary eating Huevos Rancheros.
Unfortunately I don't really have any photos of the bars I frequent. A few favorites are Maison Premiere, St. Mazie, Skinny Dennis, Blind Barber and Rocka Rolla (pictured above). I only have a photo of Rocka Rolla due to the fact I forgot to close my tab one evening and happened to have my camera on me the next morning.
Its been a crazy but awesome 2016 and I couldn't be happier to start 2017 in any place other than Brooklyn. Life lesson: If you're not happy somewhere, go somewhere else.
