Spring Break + Lemon Cake

Spring break is off to a great start. Mabel and Oliver are making a movie with the other kids in the neighborhood (with auditions and everything), Oliver had his first baseball practice last night (hooray for little league season!), and Stella and Elliot are still mostly good buddies.

After seven years in our house, I finally finished installing our baseboards, and now they just need a coat of paint. But first, wallpaper! Hopefully I'll have some photos to show you soon.

In the meantime, if you are looking for a recipe to try, this lemon cake is fantastic. It is so moist and lemony. I think it's the lemon syrup you spoon over the warm bread that makes it my favorite.

I hope spring has sprung wherever you are. It's supposed to be 95 here tomorrow, so I would say that winter is officially over. Sigh.


  1. Great project Mable and kids are doing. Hope to see it when they are finished. Whicj room are you wallpapering?
    By the wway I think you have posted the lemon cake receipe and I made it. It is delicious. You make me want to
    do it again and we have a lot of lemons.

  2. How darling that the kids are making a movie. I would have been all over that if I was a kid.
    Baseboards are fun, huh? I did the baseboards in our last house. It was a lot of work. I considered doing them here, but then pushed that thought aside quickly.
    I can't wait to see your wallpaper. Wallpaper may be a pain to remove, but it sure can be fun when it's up! I think it's totally worth it in the right space.

  3. I have to make that cake! Maybe tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe link. And yes it's too hot - which is making me a little sad even though I love living here and I really do like the summers. But we've had such a lovely past several months' worth of weather this year; it's sad to see it come to a screeching halt with 95*!
