When one doesn't blog for an entire month, her readers might just assume that A) Perhaps the blogger has passed away, or B) that said blogger hasn't done anything blog-worthy. Well, I'm here to set the record straight. Blog-cations are usually a result of life hitting so rapid a pace, that the recording of great (or not so great) ideas simply gets lost in the momentum. So here's a brief recap of what I've been doing lately:
I baked my mom's awesome carrot cake recipe.
I really liked the candied carrots on top!
I celebrated Mother's Day.
And I discovered that the key to looking good in a selfie is to have your kids hold the camera so you can hide in back.
I took a walk around the lake and rekindled my love with chartreuse.
I watched a sunset and felt the awe.
We flew to Atlanta and I wondered, once again, how the law of gravity and the law of aerodynamics can coexist.
In Atlanta, we did some serious shopping.
And I found these cute patriotic Cookies in a Jar.
Which inspired these end of the year teacher gifts.
I bought a trampoline for my birthday and I watched the kids do things that I will never do. Ever.
We learned some lessons in economics and marketing at our church-sponsored garage sale.
Cleaning out one's closet can be profitable!
I photographed my first wedding.
Hope you can enjoy some time off, too!
