It’s here, it’s here! Friday is here! Happy weekend, friends
Mike and I went home this past weekend to celebrate my
not so little brother’s college graduation and we couldn’t have asked for nicer weather or a more beautiful weekend with family! I swear I didn’t realize (or appreciate!) how pretty upstate NY is until I wasn’t living there anymore, and I SWEAR it gets prettier every time I’m home. Rolling hills, so much greenery, family time, and a sweet sunset on the ride back to Boston; here are some snapshots from home!
Hoppy Monday, friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. I’m currently nursing a chocolate/Peep hangover and trying to get back into the swing of things when all I really want to do is take a nap inside my Easter basket. My family came to visit for Easter weekend (which just so happened to be my mom’s birthday this year, hence the bunny birthday cake) – yesterday we did brunch at my apartment and then took a trip to Walden Pond and Concord for the afternoon. We even found the Easter bunny!
There is a small field/hillside I walk by every day to get to Charlestown, and usually I am too distracted spying on all the cute puppies in the dog park nearby to notice it. But on our recent summer-weather Monday, LOOK at what I discovered!!
So. Many. Daffodils.
If you are near Charlestown in the next few weeks, go check this out! Cheers me up every time
Cupid took over my kitchen (and brain) this weekend. I could not get enough of all things red, pink, and chocolate. Though obnoxious, Valentine’s Day is the second biggest baking holiday of the year in my life, and therefore I take it very seriously.
Red and pink roses to get my kitchen in the Valentine zone.
Chocolate truffles à la Eat, Live, Run.
Sparkly sugar cookie hearts.
And though it has nothing to do with pink or red or chocolate, here’s what I’m dreaming about on this sunny, heart-filled day.
