Friday Faves


Tulips at the market

Happy Friday, friends! All of the tulips, daffodils, and crocuses popping up in the markets and yards make me feel like spring is finally here! Just last week I was scraping ice off my car, yet next week’s forecast is in the 70s.  Such a crazy time of year!  Some fun inspiration in honor of the season of renewal:

And then, some not-necessarily-springy highlights from my (last few) week(s). Have a wonderful weekend!


Delicious meal at Grassa in Portland (don’t worry, this was just the first course).


Bundt cakes (lemon poppyseed and rum) for my dear friends’ wedding last weekend – in lieu of having a traditional wedding cake, the bride asked about twenty of her girlfriends to make their favorite bundt cakes. Tragically,  my cakes and I ended up missing the wedding due to a terribly-timed bout with the norovirus, but all reports said the bundt cake table was a hit!


Champagne cocktails at Tallulah’s in Capitol Hill – so hip.

My new baby nephew’s first stationary from my new Etsy fave.  I’m going to try really hard not to overwhelm this blog with pics of all the baby things I can’t seem to stop buying, but I thought these were extra cute! And what unborn baby doesn’t need personalized thank you notes?

Happy, happy Friday! Aside from a glorious 80-degree Saturday last weekend, if hasn’t felt much like summer in Seattle yet – but that’s ok because the forecast for this weekend is sunny and 82, and up to 90 by Tuesday! So we might even have a sunny 4th of July!

Wishing everyone a warm and relaxing weekend! xoxo
