A Bit of Sunshine

Here are some nice things that help thaw the current chill....

Danke Maren for the lovely Berlin Easter Haribo care package :*** :

Speaking of Easter candies, I really like this packaging:

Had a wonderful (and always inspiring) Sunday brunch at Marben with a talented bunch of ladies - Melinda, Celine, Anabela and Nikki:

Bread pudding french toast...

Haven't been in the mood for photography lately...hence the shotty pola I'm afraid... *sigh* ...

A surprise homemade gift from Nikki....

Ice cream sandwiches for good measure...

Admiring Melinda's fancy ride...(when I need to get my bike seat replaced, I am for sure getting a Brooks saddle!)

Received the tote I purchased from Anabela who's beautiful apartment was featured on Etsy today (!!!):

Thank you dear friends!

  2. They were!
    Umm..I hope I'm not gonna be a BIG fatty fat fat come Summertime... ;P

  3. easter candy is the best part about easter! and i could eat haribo candies for days on end. i saw a brooks saddle the other day at the bike shop. unfortunately i don't think i will be affording one any time soon :(
