i simply cannot deny the fact that i adore breakfast. from nearly any aspect, any range of food selection and truly at any time of the day. breakfast is truly a meal for champions, as they say.

i had the true and sincere pleasure of experiencing one of the most fun and memorable trips of my lifetime, when my sister and I embarked on a little napa getaway to celebrate her upcoming nuptials a few years ago. we had the time of our lives, nibbling along the way as we tasted & toured the greatest spots in wine country. you may remember the adventure from my heirloom travel post {found here} recapping the highlights of the trip.

our goal was to pop into any place we found on a whim, with little planning or agenda in mind. we did a marvelous job of this accomplishment with just one exception – a little bakery we found in the heart of napa called “sweetie pies bakery.”

once we entered the quaint little bakery and enjoyed our pastries & coffee on the patio, we couldn’t help but go back for another morning indulgence the very next day. it was the perfect start to our days, for several reasons, but what i loved most was the delightful morning buns that we enjoyed. fabulously light and airy, with the perfect coating of cinnamon sugar, these pastries were simply divine!

morning buns are something I’ve never been able to perfect on my own, much unlike most breakfast items I’ve attempted to cook or bake. but regardless of having a handwritten family recipe or a baked-from-scratch adventure of my own, it was these tiny buns and this memory that inspired one of the newest aprons in the IceMilk Aprons collection – Morning Bun Moments.

fondly inspired by the best sister of all time, Courtney,  i am so happy to be able to share the final product with you all. each time i say the name or see the apron it brings me back to the fun we had on our trip to california and all the wonderful memories we will share forever.

i am however ready to try my hand at a fresh batch of morning buns of my very own. do you have a recipe to share? a secret to these amazing little pastries? i’d love to know, and i promise, i’ll be sure to share with Courtney too!

As we stretch our Southern roots, IceMilk Aprons is excited to announce the launch of our line of heirloom aprons on the West coast.

The delightful Magpie, located in Morgan Hill, California, will be the first Gourmet Retailer we announce West of the Mississippi. With a thoughtfully unique product mix, founder Michelle Matz is welcoming and engaging from our first conversation. She spends her time finding things that cannot be found elsewhere, to provide her customers with a truly individual experience in the charming California store.

We are happily overwhelmed to be across the country and settled into our new Gourmet Retailer home at Magpie. Another great reason to go back to California for a visit real soon.
