LA LA Life is wonderful: My blessings list

Dear World, So many wonderful things have happened lately I felt the need to write a little list of them. One of my hereos Sheryl Sandburg wrote, "Acknowledging blessings can be a blessing in and of itself" So I begin: Europe here we come! My sister Tess and I are...

What Baking Can Do

Dear World, There are a few things I love more than Sunday afternoons. I have found even in the most difficult seasons of my life, Sunday afternoons are always little Rivendells (forgive the LOTR reference) to my proverbial trips to Mordor. But seriously, last Sunday...
