+ chit chat into the wee hours with a surprise baby shower / birthday party too. with heidi's lemon angel food cake. just the beginning of a weekend full of amazing sweets.
+ we dined at communal in provo for dinner one night and were all oohing and ahhing over every single dish. (not pictured.) i love sharing food and drawing out a long dinner. it was so awesome to eat at 'local favorites' (thanks to the suggestions of dear internet friends).

Adorable. Felt like a cozy hug as I scrolled through. I love the "Heart Attached" hutch, what a cute cake platter in there :) Congratulations on your new baby on the way!

I'm so glad you liked The Communal and The Chocolate. I always worry giving recommendations; but I'm glad you enjoyed some of our favorites.

Your home looks so festive!

Two of my favorite eateries are P712 and Communal. You need to make your way to Utah County more often- I'd be happy to meet you for lunch. :) I am envious of the sisters getaway but was lucky enough to enjoy one with my bff a few weeks ago- heavenly! Can't wait for more baby love posts- I'll be 24 weeks tomorrow and love the chance to talk baby-things with willing listeners.

I'm so ELATED for you Marta! I remember reading about your loss and teared up last night when I read your good news. You're an amazing mommy and I'm just CERTAIN that Benji will be a fantastic big brother! xoxo

that quilt is amazing.

communal is so, so good. i wish i could afford to go there more often but it serves us well as a "special occasion" kind of place.

i love the half chocolate chip/half peanut butter cazookie at the chocolate. i've actually been thinking of it all day.
