I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. It was a beautiful weekend here in the city; and felt surprisingly long even though I didn't have Friday off. Friday night I caught up with my cousin over wine and nibbles, Saturday I had brunch at one of my favorites, followed by an unexpected trip to the Met to tour the Steins Collect. I don't remember the last time I went to the Met (tragic I know) but it was such a nice way to spend the afternoon! And I would highly recommend the exhibit; it was fascinating and brought me right back to my trip to Paris last year.

My good friend Blair organized Easter brunch for all the "orphans" that don't have families nearby to go home to. This year we went to Norma's in the Le Parker Meridien. I remember going for breakfast over 10 years ago when visiting NY with my mom. Brunch was good, but probably a little over-rated and definitely over-priced!

After brunch I headed out to visit my "other" family-friends in New Jersey. We spent the afternoon walking in to town, enjoying the sunshine, and finished the day with a beautiful dinner.
All in all a wonderful weekend!
