A while ago my good friend Michaela from An Affair From The Heart created a fantastic Chocolate Espresso Cake which I instantly loved. My honey had his birthday coming up, of course I had to make him a cake, and of course Michaelas cake was the first thing that came to mind. Here is my adaptation - Chocolate Overload Cake.
Remember how Lulu started school last week? And how her first day was a flying success? Well, Monday morning brought several inches of snow, and Lulu had her first snow day. I’ll admit that when I woke up and saw the rather impressive dusting, I felt mildly disappointed. I had so much to do, and now my four hours of quiet were no more. My morning changed from productive….to playful (but you know what…that change was more than okay). I’m realizing that my little girl is growing up fast, and although I cherish the few hours I get with just a cup of tea and my laptop, I treasure the moments I get to spend with her even more.
