Typical morning scene: Mike and I are up and at 'em in the morning- starting our day, and Navy is still snoozing away. We literally have to lift him out of the bed so that he'll wake up for his morning walk!
Just to add some more change to our lives, Mike and I decided that it would be best to move from New York, NY to Newburyport, MAbefore the baby arrives. So we're moving next month!
We're moving from this...
And we couldn't be more excited! We will certainly miss NYC and all of our friends but it will be great to be closer to family and we're looking forward to living in a smaller city. (Yes, Newburyport is considered a city with a population of about 17,000) We found a cute little rental that is a block from the downtown strip which is filled with lots of shops and great restaurants. If you can believe it, we'll be closer to shopping and restaurants here than our apartment in NYC! (Currently we live right on the Hudson River, so it's three looong avenue blocks before we hit Broadway.) Newburyport is about 30 minutes north of Boston so we'll still get our city fix when we need it but we'll also get the benefits of living in a cute and quaint seaport community. I can't wait to introduce you to our new home!
In the meantime, take a little tour of Newburyport from some of my previous blog posts: here and here.
This weekend Mike and I finally got a chance to hit up Smorgasburg in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I've been meaning to go here since July! Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day, perfect for eating outside!
Smorgasburg is located on Williamsburg's East River waterfront,
With gorgeous views of Manhattan.
We started off with donuts...
and Mike got his coffee.
Then we broke out the big guns: pork buns, chicken wings and grilled pork belly.
Teriyaki balls- essentially round pancakes with sausage or shrimp stuffed in the middle, smothered with teriyaki sauce and mayo. Mike was obsessed with these.
There were many other tastings in between but they got eaten before I remembered to take pictures. But we ended the day with an ice cream sandwich from The Good Batch.
It couldn't have been a more perfect day. You should definitely check Smorgasburg out!
