Sweet & Tart Valentine’s Breakfast

Cranberry and white chocolate scones hold a very special place in my heart. When paired with a mug of pipping hot coffee and a quiet morning these little scones have the indulgent power to turn any day into a great day. Although I have tried many different variations, this recipe is by far my favourite; it is easy, fast and delicious. To take these scones to the next level, all you need is to spread a high quality marmalade on them *de-lish!* I used a pink grapefruit and rose extract marmalade from Kitten & The Bear – a quaint little tea room and confiturier {hint: A jar of one of their delicious handmade preserves would make a fantastic Valentine’s gift for the foodie in your life.}

German pointer via Blushed Tapatia{This crazy dog keeps us so entertained. He hates cold weather as much as I do but has the energy of a 5 year old on a caffeine kick. One of his favourite things to do right now is to let his head hang upside down. He does it constantly and it makes me laugh every.single.time}

The end of January is here and although I know that there are still a few months left of winter, I am happy that we are at least one month closer to warmer days ( anyone else miss wearing their jean jackets?!). This week I have been trying to stay positive, regardless of the weather. It’s not always an easy thing to do but I find that doing this series really helps out- it gives me the opportunity to look back at my week and truly appreciate the small moments that brought me joy.

I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend full of friends, food and football!

afterlight (74){Most mornings Talulah wakes up with me and prances around my feet while I get ready for work but lately it has been so cold in our apartment that she just stays in bed (and I can’t blame her). I recently discovered, however, that she peeks out that little nose of hers from under the covers and follows me around the room. It reminds me of this moment}
