We were so excited to have Sam, the Santa Barbara-based blogger of Could I Have That? in the bakery with her adorable little one, celebrating Mother's Day a little early! See an excerpt of the post below, and be sure to visit Sam's website here to read the full post.
I’m pretty lucky in the sense that I can build my work schedule around her, for the most part. Most days either Todd or I take her to school, pick her up, give her a bath and kiss her good night. But a whole morning spent without to-do’s, dishes, cleaning up or work and giving her my full attention reminds me to soak in these sweet (and short) stages of her life.
So I let her decide what we do and where we go. Nine times out of ten she wants to visit the library for new books and get a treat at Lilac Pâtisserie just down the street. We’ve both become big fans of the quaint spot that has a Parisian vibe—Elin lives for the lemon bars and I’m a big fan of the gluten free menu, win win. We have a favorite corner booth by the window that might as well have our name on it. If you happen to make your way there, don’t leave without a carrot cake cupcake!
