blossoming brooklyn

Spent Sunday exploring Brooklyn with the boyfriend and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! We started off with a lovely walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, dodging bikers and selfie sticks, and miserably failing to snap photos void of tourists.  After watching helmet after helmet whizz by, we figured we’d go for a bike ride ourselves, and walked to the nearest Citi bike station to find only one left. So instead we wandered around the park for a while, and eventually made our way over to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. The Garden was breathtaking — literally, allergy season is killing me — and filled with rows of vibrant pink cherry blossom trees. We roamed among the blooming buds and falling petals until it was time for an early dinner.
