Last weekend I celebrated the coming of something new. New life, new friends, new joy - all these sentiments that a new season inevitably brings.

The blades of grass were still wet with the morning dew as we laid out our spread. Our menu was a menagerie of mushroom risotto, vanilla layer cake and strawberry mascarpone scones (recipe coming soon!).
Spending time out of doors invites me to re-energize. It makes the monstrosity of life’s stress blow around a bit with the wind. Then, when the wind has released it's hold, it falls back down into our hands feeling lighter.
A brunch is a wonderful excuse to eat cake at 10am. But who needs an excuse?
