Our [very perfect] weekend.

This weekend was as close to perfect as it gets. The weather was flawless and we were surrounded by more family and friends than we could count. We had a late night celebrating a birthday by a fire pit, a glorious Easter morning complete with an egg hunt in our yard, and lots of baking, painting, and gardening. Spring is really showing off this year in Tennessee and we are loving every bit of it.

Here are some bits and pieces of our weekend through my lens... 

On Friday, I turned these:

We bought and planted a few herbs.

And did some (much-needed) weeding.

Saturday morning was rainy, so it was spent painting and baking inside.

Sunday morning, we had our first Easter egg hunt in our back yard. Shawn and Chris "hid" the eggs, which meant they were all in plain view because our "hunter" was just 2 years old.

These spots cracked me up.

And we all ate and laughed and ate some more.

  1. Aw it looks so pretty there!!! And did you make Martha Stewart's carrot cake?! I am cracking up because so did I. So fun. Even apart we think alike. And I love your painting. And you. See you in May?! Just around the corner!

  2. We DO think so much alike, it cracks me up! Yes, that was Martha's carrot cake, although I made the pecans on the outside too big. Oops. And I altered it to be gluten-free (selfishly) and thankfully it came out wonderfully. :) I loved your weekend pictures and all your flea market finds! You have such a great eye. What are you crafting? I want to see!
