Hello dears! There is a birthday in the family this weekend, so I will be busily baking cupcakes. I'm also hoping to sneak in a few long walks. It sounds insane, but I am loving the gloomy weather. Usually I'm chomping at the bit for spring, but this year I want to hold onto winter just a little bit longer. Just to enjoy being out in my down vest, and snuggle up with a cup of coffee and watch the clouds.
Isn't this sweet? I stumbled upon that little heart tucked into the fence in my parents' backyard last weekend. My nieces had been down to visit for Valentine's Day and I guess they got excited about the heart shaped craft punch + red construction paper. I wonder how many of these will pop up over the next few months in odd places.
I love the heart on the fence! Did you keep the heart for keepsake some day to give back to her?ReplyDelete
Fun, does this mean I celebrate my bday with someone in your family?
I agree Rachel I too have been enjoying the end of winter.
Happy cupcaking making! Have a golden weekend! xoxo
I think it would be lovely to find little hearts in little places. have fun baking.ReplyDelete
oh, how cute. Sometimes I like gloomy weather too, because I know that when spring comes to Atlanta, blazing hot, miserable summer is not far behind.ReplyDelete
it will be fun to find all of these unexpected bits of love. happy cupcake making!ReplyDelete
I adore these little found objects.ReplyDelete
That's a great photo. Hmmm cupckes! Sounds as though you have a nice weekend ahead.
Head on over to my place and see what we're celebrating for the weekend.
what a sweet surprise to find in the back yard. and just when you've convinced me that i should enjoy this gloomy weather, i'm off to lie by the pool!ReplyDelete
Excellent. I love the surprises left in the wake of tiny people.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your clouds!

I'm going to go pepper someone's apartment with little red hearts ...
Happy Weekend, Rachel.
So sweet! Hope your weekend is divine and very gloomy :)ReplyDelete

have a lovely weekend, Rachel! the weather is gloomy in Montreal as well (rain in February, craziness!!), but you make me want to enjoy it now!ReplyDelete
will you take pictures of your cupcakes?ReplyDelete
i just know that you're going to make them awesome.
your coffee+vest+clouds scenario sounds absolutely perfect right now. i want to make that happen at some point this weekend!
Cute photo! Makes me smile. :)ReplyDelete
And secretly, I'm all about gloomy weather too. You don't have to feel bad about curling up on the couch with a good book...or better yet...a BAD Lifetime movie. Haha. Happy weekend!
We have a birthdy in the family this weekend too. My son is turning 14. He is turning into a true teenager. Attitude galore!ReplyDelete
Fun idea to leave a trail of hearts or crumbs of cupcakes....ReplyDelete
Glad you shared it with us.
I love your blog and I'm tagging you ... check out my blog and participate if you want.
I love the heart Rachel - it looks really sweet. Your gloomy end of winter lloks a whole lot nicer than ours judging by the lovely light in this photo! Our gloomy = grey and yours looks fresh! Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the cupcakes!ReplyDelete
oh yeah.i guess i'll miss winter a bit because when you're sitting at home with a cuppa you just feel comfy and relaxed.but i'm still looking forward to spring bloom:)
How sweet to find cut out hearts all over the place! I can understand wanted to stay in that cosy winter place a little longer, or summer is at the humid but grey stage and now I'd prefer the air too be a little cooler. Have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
