Hello sweet friends and happy Sunday!
I hope your weekend feels long on quality time.
This weekend I’m hosting in New Orleans – it’s the first ever BakeAway – a baking, food styling, new-friend-making workshop I’m hosting at The Bakehouse. It has been incredible so far! We’re doing yoga, we’re drinking champagne, we’re experimenting with new beignet recipes, I’m wearing bold prints, we’re exploring New Orleans… it’s absolutely too much fun and I’m already so thankful for the sweet friendships I see forming around me. And we have another full BakeAway day ahead of us!
Anyway… that’s what’s keeping me very busy. And Monday I’m looking forward to a nap, or at least a good long sit.
Here’s the offering this week. I hope you find something you didn’t know you needed:
