Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!
Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend”¦

We spent Monday through Saturday of last week in NYC getting #73SpringShop ready to open with my girls – Roxy, Inslee, Loren, and Alex! We had the best time decorating the pop-up shop during the day, and then exploring the city with our husbands at night. It was the epitome of a work hard/play hard trip… and I might even say it was our best trip to NYC yet! And to top it off: the shop opened officially on Thursday night as a roaring success. I’m not sure anything can make me happier than seeing ABD in NYC!
P.S. Our collaborative pop-up shop will be open until December 20th, so make sure you pop in and do a little shopping! Here are all the details —> https://ashleybrooke.com/nyc-holiday-pop-up/

Each and every time we go to the city, I always try to find a new favorite coffee shop, and this time around I had my heart set on visiting Maman in Soho (which just so happened to be right around the corner from #73SpringShop!). I am so glad I hunted down this little gem! Inslee and I stopped in on Friday afternoon before opening the shop for the day, and then on Saturday morning I drug Ryan there AGAIN for brunch! Friends, it was amazing! You need to put this on your NYC list.
Also, as you know, I’m a sucker for good coffee cup, and their cups are gorg.!

We lucked out last week with some really great NYC weather; even though it rained the first few days we were there, it was still quite lovely and was NOTHING compared to the Florida rainstorms we get at home! But Saturday was unreal. It was cold enough that we had to bundle up, but not enough to even have to button up our jackets. To say it was magical is an understatement. I’m not going to lie–Saturday made it VERY hard to leave.
Hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xoxo
