This weekend was...

Quick breakfasts of Rhubarb Buckle and a trip to the Market to pick up our first 
CSA box of the season (!), menu planning to use all its contents,
the installation of a baby gate at the head of the stairs, and the
ensuing pang in my heart at Silas' look of confusion when he tried to back down 
the stairs and found his way blocked,
finally getting our tomato and pepper plants in the ground,
the first peonies showing us their pretty faces,
a Mother's Day of French Toast,
and a full day spent in the kitchen making homemade pasta with my love and
dancing with a baby on my back...
my idea of perfection.

Happy belated Mama's Day to you all!

Linking up with Amanda at The Habit of Being.
