On Saturday I got up early for brunch with the adorable Katrina of The Demure Muse. She is a good friend and it had been awhile since we’d gotten together so it was so fun catching up over waffles and pancakes. She brought the the most beautiful bouquet of daffodils, one of my absolute favorite flowers, too. So sweet! We met up at Portage Bay Cafe in South Lake Union. It has seriously been too long since I was there last and I forgot how amazing the food is. I had Vegan Banana Pancakes that were to die for. I wanted to ask Katrina to take some photos with me, but she had to run to an appointment after and we ran out of time. All the more reason to get together again soon!

I learned a couple of important things while taking these photos. First, this dress is now officially too short. It got stuck in my coat on my way out of the restaurant and some nice lady let me know. Thank heaven she told me before I walked past the tons of people waiting for tables near the door. It also kept blowing up while I was trying to get some good photos. Bummer. I love this one! Second, I have this bad habit of wearing adorable bracelets on my right wrist, which is always hidden in my photos. I’ve got to remember to put bracelets on my left so I can show them to you! Today I was wearing the beautiful pearl bracelet that Jim gave me for Valentine’s Day, but unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of it. Next time…
