Oh, what a beautiful morning!

Good morning!  I am in major thesis mode today, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet.  Frankly, I shouldn't even be blogging at all, but it's such an idyllic morning, I couldn't resist.  

So...  Here's what is making my morning so awesome:

Yoga (I have been AWOL from yoga class for what feels like a long time.  I MADE myself go this morning and am SO glad I did.  Although, when I go back on Thursday morning, I'll be wearing shorts.  I had a literal pool of sweat around me this morning.)

Breakfast and coffee in the back yard.  Cats playing, sun shining, breeze blowing.  I'm going to miss this back yard.

Knowing that today is going to be another very productive thesis day (once I finish writing this blog post).

Thinking about finishing my work early today (which means I'm going to have go power through) so I can make this Blueberry Raspberry Pound Cake from the blog Orangette.  If you like to cook or bake or EAT, you should really read this blog.  Then read her book.  Fantastic.

The anticipation of the final Jazz in June tonight.  We haven't made it once yet this summer, so we're going to make sure to go out with a bang tonight.  The weather should be perfect.  And I really feel like the night won't be complete without some pound cake.  Or at least maybe some ice cream.

I hope you're all enjoying your morning, too.  I'll leave you with a picture from Saturday night's anniversary dinner.  : )

And a new(er) picture of the baby bump.  Isn't she adorable?


I'd love to know...  What is making your day wonderful today?


  1. Um, can I have a piece of that pound cake? Especially since we never have had our baking date!

  2. i stumbled upon your blog from healthy tipping point. i love the orangette blog! and love your floral dress, by the way!

  3. The pound cake looks fantastic! And I know what you mean about yoga...I forget about it for a while and then go back to it and wonder, why did I forget about it again?

  4. @MonkeyGirl Yes, once I actually make the cake, I'll bring you a piece! :)

    @cal Thanks for commenting! : ) If I could spend my life baking Orangette recipes, I'd be a happy camper...

    @Ameena I know! It is a constant struggle for me to get to a yoga class, but I'm always so glad I did!
