Happy Monday, friends!

What a weekend. Saturday, there were no pictures. But there were nine and a half mile runs, plenty of iced coffee, and finally seeing ones' bestie for the first time in months. (Or maybe weeks. But it felt like years.)

Sunday was perfect. It started with a walk in the woods. Lily of the Valley were spotted, and they were magical, as always.

Sunday afternoon, Elizabeth came over and we baked up a storm. It started with a tart for a coworker's birthday, and then we needed to make an apple pie because who makes pies without also making an apple pie. Then, it's May which means it's practically sacrilege to bake without using rhubarb, so we also made a rhubarb coffee cake. Further testing is needed, but we may have found the coffee cake holy grail.

All in all, a very productive weekend.

How about you?


  1. Lily of the Valley: The Disney character of flowers. They just make me smile.

    Glad you had a fantastic weekend!

  2. Sounds like an incredible weekend!! I love long runs and then long baking sessions. Perfection!

  3. Love lily of the valley! My neighbor has a bunch of them blooming in their front yard every spring and I have to literally put my hands in my pockets so that I don't pick them. For some reason I never seem to find them at flower shops, which I suppose is good since I would probably fill the entire house to bursting!

  4. You've given me a massive craving for apple pie!

  5. I found lily-of-the-valley in our garden yesterday and snapped a thousand and one photos of it.

    All that baking sounds delicious. I'm hungry now!

  6. those pies look amazing! i wish we lived closer together so i could help you out with those. :)

  7. you are a running rockstar! and now I want pie :)

  8. Um, those pies and cakes look simply fabulous!

  9. Lilies of the valley + rhubarb is pretty much my idea of heaven. Sounds like a great weekend!

  10. so great!
    where are the recipes? please....
