Breakfast in bed - Lemon ricotta pancakes
If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen these pancakes a few times, but they are so worth mentioning again. I keep coming back to this recipe over and over again, and I usually eat them at least once a week. Best pancakes, hands down. Really. They've earned their place on this blog.
And the best bedding, too. These sheets from Evencki are so soft and so silky, I just couldn't resist having breakfast in bed. Honestly, I don't think I ever slept better than in this bedding. And I've slept a LOT. Trust me. Sleeping happens to be one of the things I'm best at in life, unfortunately. Though I must say it's also one of my favorite activities. I try really hard to be a morning person and get up early every day, but it's a struggle. If I didn't have coffee in my life, I would probably never get up. I set four alarms each morning, and sometimes it works and I wake up, but I can just as easily snooze for 3 hours more. Like that one time I overslept when I was going to be on live TV for the first time. No biggie. And one time I missed my train too, I woke up five minutes before the train left and called the train station, still half alseep. I had to buy a new ticket. I think I need more alarm clocks in my life.
