When a day starts with pie and ends with bacon in your cocktail...well, what more is there to say than that? Brooklyn, I love you. We always enjoy our Taproot team meetings gathered around my kitchen table in Maine, or in our office in charming Hardwick, Vermont, but gathered around a table full of pies at Four and Twenty Blackbirds was a very different and lovely treat for us all. But the goodness didn't stop there - there was also delightful yarn and fabric when we stopped by Taproot stockist, Brooklyn General Store where we were made to feel right at home amidst all the wool and handmade goods. Lunch at Brooklyn Farmacy and then dinner at Lola BKLYN were both wonderful places to fill us up after all the bookstores, greenstores (Green in BKLYN had such a great selection!), vintage shops, and walking we did for the rest of the day (all that walking balances out all that bacon, right?).
Though eager to get home to my babes and my garden, I am fully soaking up all the visual and gastrological delights this corner of the world exudes. And I am realizing - with not any great surprise, I know - that my favorite moments are those spent gathered around a table sharing stories, dreaming dreams, laughing, and making new friends.
Have a lovely day, all!
