Can you believe JillyJilly will be three next month?? We certainly can't but I suppose when you look back over the years it does make sense... more on that in a future post!

Places // Cocoa Tree Pittenweem

Pittenweem is such a lovely wee village, not far from us in the East Neuk of Fife. When we visit it's almost impossible to resist popping into Cocoa Tree Cafe for a hot chocolate. It's so cosy with rich earth toned decor, a little wood burning stove, vintage touches and of course fairy lights! As soon as you step in you're hit... View more
