I thought I'd finally come back to this blog after unintentionally neglecting it for so long. Truthfully, I haven't taken out my DSLR during my outings as of late; lugging around the device is more of hassle than not when all you want to do is have a good time with good people. The photos below are actually taken from Carly's camera from yesterday's brunch commemorating Chirlien's birthday. It was such a relaxing day kicking back and catching up with high school friends. Not to mention we were in such high spirits after witnessing Colombia's win against Uruguay in the World Cup, weaving among devoted fans all decked out in the victor's colors out in Astoria. Their energy was contagious.
Brunch at the Queen's Kickshaw. Our gawky server's unexpected frankness put us into a fit of giggles as we enjoyed our grilled cheeses and sunny-side up eggs.
Me and the birthday girl!
Surprised Chirlien with mini cannolis and a fruit tart from the neighborhood's authentic Italian pastry shop, Gianpiero's Bakery.
Us and our thrifted treasures in tow
Fingers crossed for more posts this summer despite my internship/job/other callings :-)
