Scenes from a Weekend : XIX

I've been spending more time in the city this month than I have in a very long while. Part of it is due to imperfectly made plans, part of it is due to the fact that I know I'll be spending more time out of the city as the weather continues to get warmer so I'm trying to soak up my time in the city while I can. A few weekends ago I was in the city with no particular plans so I called my friends Val and Drew to meet up for Saturday morning brunch. I rushed down to their neighborhood while they waited patiently at the restaurant for me to show up. 
After an exceptionally lovely brunch in the sun we strolled over to Chelsea Market. There are still so many places that I haven't been in the city yet, and until that weekend I had still never been there. The market was really interesting to walk around. It's a big tourist stop, but there's obviously a good reason for that. We meandered, picked up a few things, stopped by their apartment, then headed into the West Village for the rest of the afternoon.

The West Village is such a pretty neighborhood to walk around. I love the narrow sideways, the cobblestone streets, and the small storefronts. A few of my favorite stores to browse are down there, including the store where I bought my favorite and only pair of sunglasses. Val, Drew, and I chatted some more, picked up coffee, and then went our separate ways. I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and went for a long run with Lua by the river at the end of the day. 
On Sunday I drove home to celebrate Mother's Day with my family. We spent the day relaxing, mostly outside. Lua got her fill of backyard time while I ran a few errands around town. My mom made a salad with the greens from her garden and put some chicken on the grill for dinner. It was a relaxing night at home with my parents before another long week of work in the city. 
Thank you to Jentine for re-posting a few pictures from my last outfit post! She really was the behind the scenes cheering section for me; Team Work. And thanks to all of you for sticking around while I lost my head a little these last few weeks. It's been harder than usual to keep up with the blog, but hopefully I'll get back on track soon!

Beautiful photos, Morgan! I really enjoy your Scenes from a Weekend posts.

I'm almost embarrassed to say that despite having no real responsibility, I, too, am having a hard time keeping up with blogging. With so little time left in Mexico, I just want to soak up as much time on the beach and in the ocean as possible!

one of the things i miss most about living in a city is days like this, mostly just spent wandering in different neighborhoods. if i try to wander around MY "city" it usually takes about an hour (quite small indeed).

your photos are lovely, as always.

These "scenes from a weekend" posts are great for those of us who don't live in New York and might not know about these places. Sometimes the best weekends are spending time with friends/family and discovering new spots in the city you live :)

I thought Lua ate you. Don't do that again.
But I admit, right now, a week away from the blog sounds good...

I just pop in every now and then with the hopes of seeing something new. But if I really need my fix, I'll just slap you around via email/chat/twitter. Yay hyperconnectivity!

Two days. I'm literally shitting my pants. Cleaned the bathrooms tonight so perhaps I should try using those.

It sounds like you've been having a delightful time in the city! I love chelsea market, there is such good food there!
I know what you mean about having a hard time keeping up with blogging, I feel the same way sometimes! I realized that it is outfit posts that take tons of my time and totally stress me out, so I decided to post lots of non-outfit pictures too and that has definitely been helping a lot.
