While eating crepes last Saturday, Mike and I talked about how it would be so nice to do so with friends. So this past Saturday, fifteen friends came over (toppings in hand!) for crêpes. I don't think we've ever had so many people over in the morning before, but it was awfully nice.

  2. Sarah told me about this! I thought it was such a fun idea! I told her that I thought National Crepe Day in France was some time around this time......I just looked it up, it's February 2nd! So you celebrated just perfectly :)

  5. For months I've followed your blog and I love reading it. Your pictures are beautiful and what I love most about your blog is that it's clutter free. No advertisements, nothing to distract you from the content and the gorgeous photographs. My only complaint is you don't write enough :)

  19. Great idea, love this!! However it makes me wonder at what time you got up that morning, as I can imagine it took lots of time to make crepes for 15 people :-)

    1. we probably weren't eating the crepes till eleven, and i had assistance in the kitchen! so not too bad :) (i will admit though, waking up early to clean the house was not my favourite!)

  20. What I wouldn't give to live in your neighborhood and come over for a morning gathering like this!

  21. This looks like so much fun! Great idea! You always seem to do such fun things :)

  22. Oh, geez. Everyone is making me so overwhelmingly hungry this morning. But socially hungry, now? Too much charm. We did this in the summer, time for another one, methinks!

  23. what a great idea! you guys have so many wonderful people in your lives. xox

  26. Aw wow! My Oma and Opa had those same dishes as the one in the first photo with the boy and girl on them (in the greens, blues and purples). My momma has them now and they are beautiful!
    I have been reading for awhile from Halifax NS and thought I should say HI!
    Happy Winter!

  27. Morning gatherings with friends are pretty much the best. If/when you and your posse begin to start families, morning gatherings become a convienient option. (Everyone's up early anyway!)

    Such a warm space you have created here.

  28. This would be such a wonderful tradition to start. crepes are a favorite breakfast dish.
    Hope to try this soon:)
