Speaking of vacations, we were really blessed to have had the opportunity to spend an evening in Oceanside, CA. We drove down on a dreary Saturday and enjoyed the foggy, overcast trek down the shore. I've never experienced something so beautiful that lacked so much color.
The room was a beautiful suite, complete with king-size bed and kitchen. You can tell what our priorities are-- sleep and food. And what a lovely weekend it was. I can't reiterate enough how good it is to occasionally get some good, alone couple time away from all the distractions.
Aside from that, I've been doing lots and lots of baking lately. It brings me such joy to work with my hands and craft something that brings delight to others (especially Dave). Last weekend I made a lemon avocado pound cake. I topped it with some yummy lemon curd and ate. A lot. I ate a lot of it. I ate a whole stinkin' lot of it. And since, I've been compensating with other more healthy options, like butter lemon asparagus.
I apparently have a thing for lemon these days.
