Sweet Season of Babies

This has been the year of the babies...first, a new puppy, little Lucy--


Lucy was followed quickly by the birth of Epona--


We had a wedding at the ranch--


And now, we are waiting patiently for a grandson to be born, who is 4 days overdue.


If he doesn't come soon, I'm going to gain 20 pounds. Since my daughter's husband is working out of town, I am her support person, and I thought it would be fun to follow every doctor's appointment with a trip to Mi Flavour, a modern french bakery in Spokane, Wa.


The decadence!!


Mi Flavour makes the best macarons you'll ever taste. Everything is made in-house, from macarons to gelato, to Creme Brulee, to custom chocolate bars--croissants, lattes, macaron-gelato sandwiches....so much yumminess!









Every time we go, we try something new, and it's all equally delicious. 

It's so strange to have a bakery of this caliber in our city. It seems they'd be more at home in Seattle or Coeur d' Alene, somewhere a bit fancier than our blue collar town. They're located on a gritty city street, too--Sprague Avenue, rather than the more posh Riverfront Park across from The Davenport Hotel and The Grand Hotel. 

I'm not sure why they chose our city, but I'm sure glad we found them. They've made waiting for the baby's arrival a lot more sweet.

    1. I just had a chocolate macaron for breakfast! Life is maybe a little TOO sweet right now. 😂

  2. You certainly have had a full year. Waiting is the hardest part. Nice that you've found a way to make it sweeter, but nothing will be sweeter than the reward!! Truly hope your son-in-law gets to experience the uniquely special first moments of his son life, in person.

    1. Waiting is tough. I had a mini-panic attack last night for some reason. I guess I’m getting nervous. I sure hope he has time to make it back, too. He’s going to try his hardest. He comes home every weekend, but babies are unpredictable.

  3. Lots of babies around you this year for sure. First babies are sometimes late. Maybe he's enjoying all the sweet treats his mama is eating and doesn't want to come out yet! Macaroons are my favorite, good thing I don't live there. Try and relax and hope the baby doesn't appear until the weekend, maybe he's waiting for his dad.

    1. Their treats are dangerous! On the flip side, I did walk her a lot today, hoping to stimulate contractions. And good news! They let her husband come home early. He’s almost home now. He will definitely be here for the birth, and that takes a load off my heart and mind.

  4. I have been waiting for the baby news! Hopefully soon!
    That's great that dad will be home for the birth.

    1. He’s home now. Such a relief! Still no baby, but they’re going to induce her tomorrow. The baby is measuring big—probably over 9 pounds.
