Reasons to be Cheerful - February 2016

  • Wandering around the LES on lonely Saturday mornings to find street art...
  • ...and enjoying coffee & cat-shaped macarons at The Meow Parlour Patisserie
  • Having friends round for dinner & buying the prettiest cake from Ladybird Bakery for it
  • Discovering a new place in our 'hood that does the most delicious ramen
  • Walking over the Manhattan Bridge for the first time and enjoying the great views
  • Going to LadurĂ©e with a colleague for macarons & tea
  • Having (non-American) pancakes for dinner on Pancake Day
  • Going bowling with my ONA colleagues for our latest work field trip
  • Receiving a package full of yummy Cadbury chocolate from my momma
  • Seeing a bulldog legit skateboarding in a Brooklyn park
Read/Watched/Listened To/Saw/Visited:
  • I read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith (a book that instantly became one of my favourites), The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories by Marina Keegan, and I started Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach.
  • We went to see A View From The Bridge for a second time before it closed, and this time our seats were on the stage, mere feet from all the action.
  • We visited the Guggenheim for the Peter Fischli David Weiss: How to Work Better exhibition and enjoyed a member's evening at the Brooklyn Museum for the opening of the This Place exhibit.
  • We went to see The Revenant, Room & Brooklyn - all great Oscar movies! We also watched Ex Machina & Jessica Jones, and I watched Iris (a fantastic documentary about an inspiring woman), the Spice World movie (oh yeah!) & the new season of Pretty Little Liars.
