So far, April has been full of beauty, happy moments and dates. Sebastian and I bought tulips and lemon cake, we walked into town for bananas and birthday cards, we sipped pink rhubarb cordial and cloudy lemonade.
We took our happy faces to Pizza Express for an afternoon date and had an absolutely wonderful time. We consumed red wine/raspberry lemonade and giant pizzas with alot of chilli oil. We had a table outside and enjoyed some Springtime sunshine before it hid behind buildings and became alot cooler. It was very special.
Admiring the blossom trees against the blue skies is something that is pretty special. I love seeing them pop up on my Instagram feed. You guys are keeping me well and truly in Spring mode!
One of my favourite spring activities, other than blossom tree hunting, is cleaning and clearing. I do love a spring clean especially when I actually want to get the different hoover attachments out and go through the kitchen cupboards getting rid of all the unwanted/chipped china and old pans and out of date cans! It's such a great feeling. I also love finding old treasures that I rescued from my mother's loft and finding them a safe home. I loved my childhood and am so happy I kept a few things from it.
Salad, soup, sunshine, friends and Cinderella at the cinema are also playing a big part of my Spring so far. I have been so busy lately with wedding jobs and my friends have been busy with their lives too so it's nice to finally be able to catch up with everyone!

Oh and it's my birthday today. I have turned 28 and I'm beyond excited to be this age... especially as my beautiful bearded man and I will both be married soon and I think being 28 may just be the best age yet!
How is April treating you lately?


  1. Happy birthday! It sounds like spring is helping you celebrate! All your little "dates" with you man seem simple and sweet - I miss those days with my hubby. Too many kids now to fit any of these things! : )

  2. Happy birthday! I've been searching through my mum's loft too and found so much stuff, it was a total blast from the past!

  3. Oh my goodness, Polly Pocket takes me back! I was a weird kid though - I had Polly Pocket AND the Mad Max! It's so hot today, that cloudy lemondade would be good right about now! x


  4. Wishing you the happiest of birthdays and a year chocker block with fantastic memories - with your wedding on the horizon that should pretty much be a given! I love April too - the light at the end of a usually long wintery tunnel. It's like everyone comes out of hibernation and you can't help but have an extra pep in your step. Oh and Polly Pocket - total blast from the past!!

  5. Mmm this definitely give me a craving for lemon cake! Happy Birthday!!
