It was my birthday a few weeks ago. It was also my friend’s birthday at the beginning of the month. What do two basic betches do for their birthdays? Brunch of course. Mission Taqueria, a trendy~ new mexican place, just opened in Center City. I went there for happy hour (v good) and they do brunch, so we dragged all our friends there because why not. Brunch: the gift that keeps on giving.
My mom & I have an autumn tradition. Ever since I was little, every October we’d go to this tiny cider mill called Hacklebarney Farm. Once a year, I get to savor an afternoon full of crisp fall weather, apple cider everything & spending time with the fam. This annual Hacklebarney trip has become so ingrained in my year that ever since I moved out, I pick an October weekend to celebrate my bday at home…and go to Hacklebarney.
This year was no different. My mom and I picked last weekend as the annual Hacklebarney trip, and I actually counted the days until it arrived. When Hurricane Matthew threatened to bring rain up the east coast, my mom and I were a tad worried about our outdoor outing, but damnit, we were going to go to Hacklebarney no matter what.
