while I was an intern at fisher-price, my favorite place to eat in town was elm street bakery. I ate there everyday during my first week as an intern when I didn’t know anyone or even where the cafeteria was. I took brendan there and we went every time he visited and I had my last lunch as an intern there with some friends. it reminds me of the big sur bakery, which is a huge compliment as it is one of my favorite cafes I have ever been to. the food at elm street is amazing and changes every week or so. my favorite thing I’ve had there is the salmon tartine, which is an open faced sandwich with smoked salmon, feta cheese and arugula. here are a few pictures I snapped on my last visit to the bakery while living in east aurora.
after going to the pumpkin patch, brendan and i went on an adventure to find an apple orchard to pick some apples. since it was late in the season, most weren’t open or were out of apples but we finally found one that was an hour away that sounded promising. we drove and drove thru the countryside and finally found the picturesque apple farm. seriously, this place is adorable! but when we went to the apple picking counter to get our bags, we were informed they were out of apples as of an hour before. rats! but we decided to walk around anyways and take in how pretty the farm was. we finally found one apple at the very tip top of a tree and with brendan’s help, i finally got my apple! other highlights of our trip to the apple farm was an adorable dog that happily followed us around and the yummiest frozen apple cider! it was so good we went back for more when we were done with our first glass! i’m gonna try to make my own soon so stay turned! overall, even despite the lack of apples, it was a great day!
i’ve been missing new york so much lately. of all the cities i’ve been to, new york city has got to be the one my heart gravitates towards the most. the more i go, the more i love it. when i was in 7th grade, i was blessed enough to spend two months on the upper east side for a ballet intensive and this past spring, i spent a week in greenwich village. here are some film pictures i took on my last visit to nyc.
