Sisters in Seoul Continued

The past weekend and week were just gorgeous! You know the kind. We did a little exploring around Seoul with the sisters and we’re absolutely diggin’ it! Straight kicking it cousin style. Ha Ha! I’m sure missing these ladies since they have left, I know Kelsey is too.

We treated ourselves twice to Wood & Brick. You guys, this place is just the most sweetest, charming place. Gah! I feel like so many places now pale in comparison. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners and it only added to my love of this place. They had such a passion for their food, bakery and customers. The best part was they just re-opened the newly remodeled bakery.

Eek! Oh, I almost forgot, french macarons! You know I’ve made it my mission to search them out everywhere we live. Wouldn’t you know that Wood & Brick not only has macarons, but they have delightful ice-cream sandwich macarons too! Think flavors like banana, camel, mango, and green tea.

Ohh and then there was this cake. I celebrated part of my birthday during the week. Yes, you read the last sentence correctly. Part. The rest of the birthday festivities will be this weekend. Stay tuned.

Mr. B and Kelsey whipped up the cake of my choice. Earl grey with a lavender buttercream frosting. It was a silly mess in our kitchen but full of big laughs and memories I’ll never ever forget. Thank you guys!

^ Kelsey after they realized the lavender did not need to be pulverized. Oops.

Ps: These flowers are killing it too. One from Mr. B and the other from my talented friend Sunny. Swoon. I’d love to keep my house full of fresh-cut flowers year round if I could!
