I see hints of sandals, cropped pants and other springlike attire on my instagram feed, but today in the Pacific Northwest it rained steadily throughout the day. And while pedicured toes and sunglasses are not yet required in these parts, we do have the perfect backdrop for cozying up with a good book and a cup of Dark Hot Chocolate Affogato. This liquid dessert is fairly new to my repertoire, but it's fast become a favorite--particularly on days like this. I highly suggest treating yourself to a cup if you are experiencing similarly chilly weather!
Also, I have been steadily working on an exciting project that I am anxious to share with you soon. Just give me a couple of weeks to wrap things up! One little hint: it has to do with my growing pie box business, which was recently rebranded and copyrighted. Rachel Jones of Black Eiffel created the logo and my husband, Ben, came up with the name (très a propos since he also came up with my blog name). I am so pleased with it, I must admit. Rachel did an amazing job!
And one last note that's style related...last year I purchased a cap-sleeved maxi dress from the Gap that I basically lived in all summer. It's machine washable, comfortable and perfect with a pair of gladiators. I recently noticed their sister company, Old Navy, if now offering an almost identical dress (at least in appearance...can't vouch for the fabric just yet), for half price this season. For those of you experiencing warmer Spring weather, you could easily wear this right now. I just had to share this favorite with you!
