A Map & Menu Weekend: 05.09-05.11

Michael's Birthday

What a beautiful couple of days it has been in Maine! I’m not sure how long this lovely weather will last, but we’ve been making the most of it lately by spending as much time in the yard as possible. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to be as active outside with Orvis as we usually are, as he developed an infection from a toe injury and has been sporting a heartbreakingly adorable bandaged paw for the past few days. Fingers crossed it heals quickly and he’ll be back to his crazy self in no time!

Over the weekend we had the chance to celebrate a few birthdays, some a little early and one a bit late. Michael will be in Scotland during his actual birthday so we opened his present and had cake on Saturday night, and then the next morning we had our friends, Darcy & Carolyn, over for a joint birthday brunch in honor of¬†Carolyn & Michael’s May birthdays and my April birthday. We picked up some goodies from Scratch, whipped up a blueberry skillet pancake,¬†sipped orange juice mimosas on the patio, and laughed for hours while Orvis slept at our feet. In keeping with the weekend’s festive vibe, we met my mother at Frontier Cafe in Brunswick for a Mother’s Day dinner later that evening and continued laughing the day away.

This weekend’s dose of spring weather surely has us excited for more days such as these. We hope you all had a wonderful few days as well!

  1. The mimosa looks so delicious. I have been really enjoying this warm weather and I am super sad that it is going back to cold for the rest of the week. This seemed like such a tease!

  2. Happy Birthday all around, I say! :) And there was so much happiness in this post – save for poor Orvis. But even then things could be much worse – at lease he doesn’t have to wear the cone of shame!
