-My Daffodils-

I was complaining to my friend about how the daffodils weren't blooming. She replied frankly that if I brought them inside and put them in a glass of water they would.
I was thrilled when they actually did bloom. It gave me hope that maybe Spring will come after all.
We will have one warm day, then another cold day. I love the warm days, and dread the cold ones.
anyways... I hope the Daffodils are blooming wherever you are!

Baking {chocolate, cupcakes, meringue, cookies}

Well, hi. Warning: this post may make you hungry. My advice would be to have a snack ready. I basically spent all day Friday baking. I think this post should be (without doubt) dedicated to chocolate. Wait. Take a minute. WHAT WOULD THE WORLD BE WITHOUT CHOCOLATE?!?!?!?!?!

A very lonely place.

Yup, right answer.

ACTUALLY did you know that chocolate is actually healthy?

Wow, awesome. I'm going to go stock up Hershey bars, right now!

WAIT! Hold on, I spoke too soon. The darker the chocolate the better for your health. Yeah, I don't think that Hershey bars are gonna cut it, sorry.

So, now you get to enjoy some lovely pictures of chocolate and other various sweat treats...

Chocolate is so fun to photograph. Are you hungry yet?

Photo bomb!

Whew, that's better. xD

I also made cupcakes. Guys, these cupcakes are special. They are...

-gluten free
-dairy free
-nut free
-sugar free (honey doesn't count)

Yes, very special cupcakes. Very special.

...and that's why I took so many pictures of them.

My sister made oatmeal raisin cookies. Don't they just look scrumptious?

And yes, another picture of my lovely cupcakes. This one is special because it was the very last one.

this is my invariable advice to people:
learn how to cook--try new recipes, learn from your mistakes,
be fearless
and above all
have fun.

I am so happy because spring is finally here. It was a little depressing when it snowed on the first day of spring.
The wonderful thing about spring is that it just makes you want to jump and sing.
Spring is a glorious season.

We are getting a new deck which is so exciting!

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.

...and that was exactly how today was.
God bless! <3

If you stop and think about it the sun is truly spectacular. It's just amazing. Here are some pictures I took of it and the shadows it cast on the things around me.
