heavenly days...

A weekend away, just the hubby & I.  We kicked off with a visit to our lovely friend Nat's quaint little cafe Beatrix in Nth Melbourne. This is an absolute MUST do if you are in town, and how lucky for you if you're a local!  You won't be able to resist just about everything on offer, all made with such love..you can actually feel it, the love, really! 
Hubby and I started with one of Beatrix famous brioche donuts, this little treat only available on Saturday & TO.DIE.FOR!  The best coffee ever & then we had the Breggie roll, that was a little piece of heaven in itself. 
look at that cute logo... 
and a growing arrangement of vintage beaters hanging above the counter.  You can bring one along to contribute if you like.. 
ooohhh my! There is so much deliciousness here & I love the fun names of  everything..

Truly I don't think my photos do this little gem justice, you'll love Beatrix, it's cute, super friendly & a little wholesome nostalgia all rolled into one, I can't wait to go back. You can check out Beatrix daily treats over here too just to be sure you don't miss out.. 
we also strolled the city streets, hubby sporting his new wristwarmers (zoolander style), and just wandered though arcades & laneways til our hearts content.  I just love Melbourne, I do miss it. Though being so far away does make having these weekend getaways together all the more special.. 
the view from our hotel window.. 
perching ourselves at a bar, just because we can! Enjoying beautiful wines, fabulous food & being made feel extra special by doting staff who are just so passionate about what they do, you can't beat that! 
all the time in the world to chat, about all sorts of things, just us...

And now it's Monday again! Back to the hustle & bustle of life..but quite honestly, I love that too!
