April…born in May. Yes, that’s me (and born on Mother’s Day of all things) and this blog is my new adventure. I’ve worked in television doing graphics, done freelance illustration, volunteered, volunteered and volunteered again at my kiddos’ school and also do the Mom-thing.
What do I also like to do? Creative things, artistic things, foodie things (particularly baking), find great, little restaurants, shops or even a perfectly frothy cappuccino, which is strangely hard to come by considering everyone and their brother makes them these days (maybe that’s why?). What else do I like and try to do? Savor the little things in life. As someone who is…eh-hem, 42 years old, I’m seeing that there are days when life feels like it’s flying by. Or better yet, as one of my favorite quotes about Motherhood goes: “The days are long, but the years are short”. Isn’t that just the truth or what? So, I like to make it my mission to appreciate the wee things that put a spring in our step, add some sparkle to our days and Frost Our Cupcakes. Hell, it can be finding the pair of jeans (otherwise known as the needle-in-the-haystack search), taking 15 minutes to sit on that bench that you pass 1,000 times a week and finally just BREATHE , making a kick-ass dessert, or even trying something totally new “just ’cause”. This all might sounds a bit generic and even PollyAnna-esque, but I think it’s so easy to get caught up in the craziness of our daily life that we sometimes forget to notice the good stuff-people, things, moments-that surrounds us.
You know those serendipitous moments, those things that cross your path on a given day that just, well, make it?That’s what this blog is going to be about, or at least start out as. Who knows where it will take me or how it will evolve….I have in my mind that I want to share recipes that I know and love and some places, foods and finds that I stumble on …even just sharing good words and visuals to breathe a little spark into a day. So…shall we begin? We shall.
