Hello darlings! With the completion of finals week, I can finally post about this lovely day I had last week. I know it has been an extremely hectic blogging experience this semester, but I’m thrilled to start posting more content.
Around every May, Albany has an event called tulip fest. There are thousands of tulips scattered across Washington park. I was fortunate enough to take a break from my essays and go to the park a week early with my two friends. They might look familiar to you… They were my travel buds in Italy. Some things never change.
You could say that we were all wearing black because we were mourning the upcoming finals week. I had four essays and four finals… you can definitely say I’m glad it’s over.
I’m wearing a very inexpensive dress from Forever 21, lace-up flats from TopShop, stone necklace from TopShop, bag from Kate Spade, and the lovely tan jacket is borrowed from Courtney.
Before we went to the park, we had our last brunch of the semester. I’ve talked about Iron Gate Cafe before, but I’ll say it again. This is the best brunch place in Albany. You’re really missing out if you come to Albany and don’t try it out.
Pictured below is the same thing I always get, a turkey B.L.A.T. (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato). There is usually this bomb.com pesto mayo that actually might make my heart sing a little bit. Might just be the homefries clogging my arteries… at least I enjoy it.
If you’re ever in the area during tulip season I would definitely check out Washington park. There were dogs roaming around, children in their communion dresses, and even a bride and groom taking pictures. It seemed like the place to be. I can’t wait to come again next year and enjoy my (possible) last year in the Albany area.
What is your favorite activity to do in the spring? Do you explore parks, hike, or enjoy a cone of freshly scooped ice cream? Whatever you do let me know and hopefully give me some new ideas!
It’s good to be back.
