the other week when we drove to philly for the day, we stopped by terrain in pennsylvania on our way. oh how long i have dreamed of checking out that beautiful little garden spot and try out their cafe. the entire experience did not disappoint. such beautiful indoor and outdoor space, and absolutely delicious food. (we are still talking about that bread and lavender butter…and the gnocchi too, oh my!) we left dreaming about our future family garden, both flower and vegetable. someday, right? someday….
  1. It looks so amazing! What a neat place!

  2. How heavenly!! I, too, can't wait for a little garden someday! And to maybe figure out how to make that delish sounding lavender butter:)
