Five Things

 {the candle wall at the davisburg candle factory}
I took complete advantage of the beautiful weather this week. I made a trip to the candle factory (more about that next week), went to my first Detroit Tigers game of the season, had a bbq and found peonies in season at the local market. My weekend will consist of spending time with my mum (flower, purse and shoe shopping + creating confections in the kitchen) and having a low key Sunday brunch. What are your plans this weekend?

to prevent your water from boiling over, place a wooden spoon across the center
