My Farewell Address to LA

We moved away from Los Angeles at the beginning of the Pandemic. This was something I wrote to process the thoughts and emotions I had going on at the time.

4 Lessons I’ve Learned

Here is a quick and dirty list of things I’ve learned during this past Lent season. I gave up social media and news and I’m grateful for the experience! If I want friends, I have to work for them. This is not entirely news to me. But sometimes we forget the obvious. When I was…

Spring Showers Bring Lemon Cake

This weekend I helped to celebrate my sweet friend Narae’s baby shower! I jumped at the chance to make a cake for this special occasion. I seriously find so much pleasure in planning a cake for any kind of celebration/event. Cakes can be so pretty and I love how they symbolize celebration! It’s not everyday you…
