This is Era, Moon, and Adriel. They were at the Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn. I saw Moon and Era, and immediately went over to tell them how beautiful they were. We were all set to take a picture when, out of nowhere, my friend Adriel jumped in and said “Ooooh! Me too!”. Even though she wasn’t looking at the camera when I took this, I’m happy she jumped in because it made one gorgeous picture. Simply beautiful. Only in Brooklyn.

One year ago today I moved to Brooklyn. Technically my lease began yesterday, but I moved in on Saturday, February 2nd, 2013. Today is Sunday, February 2nd, 2014.

I was about to start waxing poetic about all the things that have happened this past year. And I still could. But instead here are a few of my favorite photos, taken in my favorite borough sometime in the past 365 days.

And things have been an adventure, always. From meeting new people, discovering farmers markets and three of my favorite bars in the world, living within 15 minutes of one of my best friends and a few subway stops away from a few others, checking out art galleries, spotting street art, capturing breathtaking views, and hosting poetry readings in my tiny shoebox of an apartment, this year has been full of things.

I just re-signed my lease for another year here. Because even though Atlantic Ave may keep me up at night all too often, and even though I may be moving in with my boyfriend sometime within the next year, I love this little place.

Maybe I did wax poetic a bit. Oh well.
