This past Saturday, Yeji and Eric invited Taurin and me to their lovely home for brunch.
As we walked in, we were greeted by a welcome message and the brunch menu!
I loved spreading ripe avocados and cream cheese on sesame toast with a side of lightly runny eggs. We ate all the bacon and butternut squash salad before going out to the park.

Sunday was the long-awaited Brooklyn Zine Fest in Williamsburg.
Zine of the Month table had so much eye candy, and Mark made me want to visit Philly!

Jacob invited us to drink tea with his friend Johnny, who has studied the art of tea for many years and now lives in a beautifully restored Brooklyn home. It was a perfect late afternoon for tea time.
