Five Things

FullSizeRender 17Buttermilk + Bourbon // in Boston’s Back Bay

It was a slow, lazy week. Not so much that we weren’t busy — we hosted a good friend from out of town, enjoyed a few incredible dinners out in Boston, celebrated my birthday, and ticked of some to dos in the yard — but it’s more that this cool, spring weather is stalling my drive to get moving on all the usual warm weather things I associate with the first weeks of May. Plus, I’m at the stage of my pregnancy where I just want to rest (and nest) which is challenging with an active toddler. I just counted 35 days until delivery and realized I need to get cracking on my miles-long list of pre-baby To Dos. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

my husband put together three different cake recipes based on flavors he knows I love to create this and despite a bit of a snafu removing it from the pan, it was absolutely delicious (it’s 3-tier, coconut & lemon curd)IMG_7564
