charming day.

Yesterday, I woke up at 5am, and couldn't will myself back to sleep...no matter how many sheep I counted. Being the internet addict that I am, I hopped on my laptop to shoot my husband an email, only to find my sister online...she lives across town and was also unable to sleep. We quickly decided this was a good reason to go stuff our faces.

Makes perfect sense, right?

Down the street from my house, there's a sweet little cafe that really triumphs at crave-worthy breakfast. I picked the lemon crepe this time...and holy smokes. Not only was it as big as my head (photo evidence here), I'd also liken the taste to eating a cloud.

It may have been better than the crepe I had in Paris. Ouch...it hurt to say that!

After a few cups of joe, my sis headed to the airport, off to a bachelorette party in South Carolina...so I took myself to the florist further down the street, where I picked out a bunch of pale pink tulips. Love. So pretty I stopped in the park to unwrap them, drape the blooms over benches and stand unabashedly on picnic tables to snap photos.

It was pretty near close to the perfect morning. But, I'd be lying if I said I didn't catch a nap later in the day to make up for that unusually early start-time. ;)

Happy weekend!


  1. Sounds like a very lovely morning indeed. That Crêpe looks amazing (I kind of want to learn how to make them now hm..) and the flowers are beautiful. Hope today is great for you, and happy weekend to you as well! :-)

  2. Yummy! And the flowers are so lovely as well.

  3. This is similar to an unexpected morning that I had on Wednesday.
    I've never had a crepe before, but that looks super yummy!

    Oh, Bethany! Those blossoms made me sigh. I think I'm craving fresh flowers. I'm going to have to go buy some as soon as I have cash available. It may be awhile, but in the meantime I'll daydream of my own little lovely blossoms to come as I look upon your pretty pink picture. =)

  4. What a great morning! How lucky to have your sister close by. I love those pink tulips too! What a sweet post.

  5. Oh! That crepe looks amazing. It looked good on Facebook, but on your blog, the photo is about 5 times bigger {and more drool-worthy!}

    Love your pink tulips too. Thinking I might have to treat myself to some soon, if Alan doesn't...

  6. Happy Friday!

    What a perfect little day! I love those unexpected events!


  7. Wow. As much as I love to sleep in, I have to say sometimes it's great to wake up super early and get your day started.
    That sounds like the perfect morning to me!

  8. One question --how do you look so put together that early in the morning??? Haha

    But yes, that crepe looks amazing.

  9. the crepe looks absolutely amazing and the flowers are gorgeous. looks like you had such a wonderful morning! hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  10. That crepe looks soooo good!

    And those flowers are delightful. It's amazing how something simple like flowers can brighten your day.

    I'm also a crazy photographer who stands at weird angles to get a photo of something that others just shake there head at :)

  13. That crepe looks SO good. I'm going to have to look for a recipe after seeing that.


Every time you comment, a unicorn gets his wings. Also, my phone beeps and your words bring me joy. :)
