Sometimes the most perfect of summer weekends are also the most simple of summer weekends.
After a Friday afternoon spent window shopping – for actual windows – we rewarded ourselves with Duckfat milkshakes and grilled salmon on the patio. On Saturday, we finally made our way over to the new Tandem Bakery in the West End – where the scones and sticky buns are dangerously delicious. After breakfast, we made a trip to the peak-season farmer’s market, and then over the course of the day, ended up at the beach three separate times with Orvis before the peaceful afternoon storms. Sunday, we started with a run and a swim, followed by a mid-morning treat from Scratch, and then capped off the day by trying multiple new recipes for dinner (and dessert) on the patio.
We intentionally didn’t make any big plans this past weekend, and although no single part seemed out of the ordinary, looking back it’s hard to think of a better way for that weekend to have turned out – simply perfect.
