In an effort to make sure that I get out of the house at reasonable intervals (#bloggerlife) and enjoy the nice spring days ahead, I’ve set an ambitious agenda this month. As much as I love making my way to New York City (because there are always fun things to do there!), I’ve decided to stay close to home and enjoy all that Long Island has to offer.
Try: If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I think brunch is all day, e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y. Luckily, Long Island does not disappoint in the brunch category. Now that the weather is nicer, a good weekly Sunday brunch is in order. And I’m on the hunt to find some new places to share with you all.
Read: I’m still looking for some good book recommendations (#helpagirlout). I’ve never been into fiction — favoring more of the empowerment genre — but I think I’m ready to give it another chance. Have you read any good books lately?
Go: There is no shortage of things to do on Long Island. Trips to the East End and Fire Island are always on my itinerary come spring and summer. But recently, I realized that there are a whole bunch of museums and attractions that I haven’t been to since I was a kid. I would love to visit Sagamore Hill, the Vanderbilt Museum, and the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. While I’m sure I won’t be able to cross all of these things off my agenda this month, it’s good to have goals. Right?
Do: Emily over at Cupcakes and Cashmere has inspired me to visit a farmers’ market and try to make a brunch with fresh ingredients. She shared the recipes on her blog for lemon ricotta pancakes and blueberry buttermilk crumb cakes that looked beyond delicious. Fortunately, Long Island has plenty of farmers’ markets this time of year, so I plan on heading to one this coming weekend.
See: I’m not much of a movie-goer, nor do I care for the superhero genre, but the new Captain America: Civil War movie has piqued my interest. It looks like it has just the right amount of action to keep me entertained!
What’s on your agenda this month?
