Ahhhhhhh, brunch.

I’ll save you the cliche spiel on the importance of brunch. We all love it. We all need it in our lives. Since having James though, there are two kinds of brunches now. Baby friendly brunch, which usually consists of trying to find a big, dark, loud, empty restaurant, that is semi-nice to you and your toddler. Oh, and somewhere that doesn’t have any beautiful finishes in danger of getting ruined or spilled on. Okay, I’m making that sound way worse than it actually is – but just trying to make a point!

Then, there is pretty-party-time-brunch. Cue heart eyes. You and your friends wear cute brunch appropriate outfits (something trendy and chic but not trying to hard because it’s day time, obvi). Then, you search for the cutest place you can find, somewhere bright + happy with bright + happy vibes, somewhere that is buzzing with life, and preferably somewhere with bottomless mimosas. Anyone else getting butterflies just thinking about it?!
