  • detroit to brooklyn. day 2.

    Day two was pretty amazing. I mean, look at the weather. Clear skies all around. Sarah had to work for most of the day, but I found it easy to just wander around this beautiful city alone.

    My first stop was Depanneur. Man, this shop was special. I wanted to buy all of the things. I specifically went there to get some Whimsy & Spice cookies, but left with a handful of other goodies, too (including the gorgeous new issue of Kinfolk).

    Next up, I stopped at the Brooklyn Art Library. That place. Oh, that place. It's made of magic. I bought so many treasures. Like, serious treasures. If you're ever in the neighborhood, it's a must-see for sure. Plus, it's right next door to this...

    ...Mast Brothers Chocolate! It smells like heaven in there. I didn't want to leave. The sales girl said if I stayed long enough, I would smell like chocolate. I was OK with that. I brought home three bars and they are going quick.

    Sarah was able to break free from work to join me at the Oh Joy book party at West Elm. Joy is a doll and they served us yummy drinks and snacks. It was really a win, win kind of night. I'm so glad I got to meet her and hear her speak. She is inspiring.

    I ended the night with Netflix, a New York slice and cookies in bed. It was really a perfect, perfect day.
