The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe along with some lemon curd and I'm thinking it will be perfect for a weekend brunch. I'll report back if I don't completely screw it up!

Hoping your week is off to a wonderful start!

  1. What a dreamy picture, that soft pastel colour palette is so soothing. My special Easter plans involve the lab, but I think I might also try my hand at making my own croissants too... tempted by your recipe though! x
