I'm starting to feel some of my posts are going to need dedications. This post is dedicated to my best friend Alex, and all of my readers out there who love and live for their girl time!
Brunch on the weekends is one of my favorite things to do. It's a time to gossip, vent, and drink a much needed mimosa...or 10. This Saturday I had planned of having brunch at The Hudson in LA, but my best friend Alex pumped the breaks on that and suggested we try Eveleigh on Sunset. When Alex picks a place to eat it's not just for the food. She considers ambiance, decor, crowd, music, etc. It's one of the reasons I keep her around. Anyway, we walked into this joint and it was love at first sight. Taxidermy everywhere, textured wallpaper, a gorgeous patio, and a menu of perfect Saturday morning cocktails. We are big taste testers so we usually order a few things and share when we eat out. Yesterday, we decided to indulge in fluffy ricotta pancakes and a FULL egg breakfast. It was TO.DIE.FOR. The only complaint Alex had was there was too much pulp around the top of the mimosa glass. The many quirks of Alex and the reason I love her. She will soon become a very special person in your life as my blog unfolds.
One of the reasons my Saturday brunch is so important to me is it's a time to unwind with my girls. Alex and I had a more intimate brunch yesterday, just us two, and although most of it was spent setting up my new iPhone and eating, those few minutes we had to talk about our lives was that comfort we both need once a week. Alex is that friend who will hit you on the side of the head with her words when your being an idiot but there is something so warm about her spirit that your emotions just come pouring out around her. I swear, she has seen me cry more times in 7 years than my mom has in my whole lifetime. Well, that's probably not true, but you get what I'm saying.
I know how busy everyone is, but if you can make time once a weekend for brunch with your best friends I really recommend it. These are the times when you're older that you will look back on and have a reason to smile. Brunch is NEVER just brunch for me....
