Friday Five

This past week has been one giant, fun blur. I was quite happy to bake with some friends to tone down all of the zipping around I’d been doing.

Friday Five

I’m a firm believer that the Friday after Daylight Savings requires happy hour. Is anyone else feeling the need for a cocktail after losing an hour of sleep? Ugh.

Friday Five

We’re finally getting more rain in California and I couldn’t be more excited! However, my productivity has severely decreased because of it. When it starts raining, all I want to do is be curled up in my bed, wearing my comfy clothes, drinking something warm and watching something good. I just got thrown into House of Cards (at season 4, terrible idea), so that would work for me. Any other recommendations?

But I digress. It’s the end of the week, so let’s Friday Five!

A Model Bakery English muffin and tea sounds like heaven right now.

3. It feels as though when we travel, we leave a piece of our heart in each neighborhood, city, or country we visit. Erin shares how Rishikesh captured her heart so quickly, in her recent post.
