It's Tiny Happy Tuesday! Time to acknowledge and appreciate all the little happies piling up to give me my beautiful, chaotic, lovely life. Want to join? You can find more info here.
- My oldest friend currently lives on the other side of the world but she's in town for a short time. She came to visit us yesterday. It's been almost a year since I saw her last but it was like I saw her a week ago. We chatted. We laughed. We drank gin and ate cheese. It was absolutely perfect. I'm so grateful for her friendship. Grady has called her "Uncle Dree Dree" since he could speak and she truly is family.
- Poppy is enchanted by all animals but she's particularly smitten with dogs. Yesterday I was wearing her in the baby carrier as I flipped through the racks of greeting cards at the grocery store. All of a sudden she started panting like a dog and then giggled like a maniac. There was a rack of giant novelty cards with dogs wearing hats, dogs eating ice cream, etc. It was Poppy's version of heaven. It was a very sad moment when we had to leave.
- Local asparagus! I roasted a bunch yesterday and have been eating it non-stop. You guys. So good.
- Smitten Kitchen's Rhubarb Snacking Cake. The perfect amount of buttery cake, tart rhubarb, and zingy lemon. If you've got fresh rhubarb, make this cake. It's perfect for breakfast (what? There's fruit in it.).
