What did you do this weekend?
The weather was bee-yoo-tiful yesterday! Yes, I timidly poked my head out the window to feel the temperature as I suspiciously waited for the first drop of rain ... but there was nothing but blue skies and sunshine for the whole day (don't worry, it's raining and grey again today). The magpies were chatting to each other, people were playing tennis in Rosemary Gardens, I had my sunnies and ankle-skimming jeans on ... it almost felt like spring.
We stopped by the small but adorable café in De Beauvoir, 52a Coffee House (or Shop ... it can't seem to decide), which I love to visit for its range of delicious homemade cakes, pastries, cookies, and delicious hot drinks. In particular, I love their soy almond tea latte, which is thick and creamy with a light almond flavor. And their spiced chai tea latte - along with their super friendly service - always puts me in a good mood.
Along with baked goods, they've also started to carry a small range of produce (which you can almost see in the photo above), including these organic eggs:
I had to take a photo for my mom because she made the observation that we typically only have brown eggs here in the UK, whereas eggs in the US (or at least, where I'm from) tend to be white and brown eggs are a little bit of a novelty. So, this was the first time I'd ever seen white eggs in the UK! Oh, so much excitement for this American.
John and I took our drinks outside to soak up the sun while it lasted and it felt positively luxurious to be bathed in a momentary warmth ... in England ... in February.
Have a lovely week. :)
