Happy Thursday everyone! Today is an extra special day because it’s not only the FIRST DAY OF FALL, but it’s also my NAMES DAY!!!
🍃🍁🍂 HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL EVERYONE!!! 🍃🍁🍂
Fall is by far my absolute favorite time of the year! Unfortunately, we are still having pretty warm weather here in San Jose, CA. This weekend is supposed to be 93+…ugh that doesn’t feel like fall at all. I’m ready for boots, scarves, pumpkins, cool/crispy weather, baking and enjoying the “change in seasons” (not that we get much in CA). Excited either way to be entering the fall season. I love everything about it!
Next up, my NAMES DAY! 🇱🇻 🇱🇻
Daudz Laimes Vārda Dienā man!
Growing up (especially with Latvian grandparents) celebrating our names day was a really big deal. It’s days like today that I really miss my Latvian grandparents. I also especially miss my Grammi’s klingeris (or yellow bread as we called it). Klingeris a is a saffron-scented bread made of yeast dough with dried fruits and almond slices on top that is often shaped into a figure eight and decorated with flowers. My Dad and sister Ari have been making yellow bread and last year was probably the closest they have ever gotten to it tasting just like Grammi’s. So delicious!
Love this! Ha Ha
Hope you all have a great day!
