happy friday, friends! did you have a good week? i did — i spent much of it working and working out, cooking and cleaning and getting things in order. so, yes: a good week. plus, the weather has been insanely beautiful here — 75 degrees and sunny every day. my friend/coworker h. and i have a habit of taking 15-minute afternoon walks, and i swear the sunshine has been like an instant shot of happy. this time of year is exactly why i love florida.
and i’ll have extra time to enjoy sarasota this weekend, because i have monday off for presidents’ day. i’m going to a friend’s baby shower tomorrow morning (i’m still not used to my friends having babies), and then a dinner party tomorrow night, to which i think i’m bringing this cake (i love your recipes, ina). i also want to write up all the recipes and stories i’ve been meaning to post on my sadly neglected baking blog and figure out a way to catalog them in this space (easier and more user-friendly), and of course spend time with friends and get in some exercise. i may or may not post on monday; if i don’t, i’ll definitely see you back here tuesday.
and please do tell me your plans for the weekend, too — whatever you’re doing, i hope you have a fantastic time doing it! xoxo
