loving you :: a first time for everything

Today is day #2 of ice storm! So that means that I have today off as well! 



I love finding new things that keep me occupied for hours at a time. Yesterday, was the first of my two snow days and I couldn't be more excited. For a while now, as you know, I have been craving macaroons. Over the past few weeks, I have been looking at recipes online and looking at the reviews of the recipes. This project was real. Thanks to the snow day, I actually had time to bake something super yummy.

I woke up yesterday and I thought to myself: today is the day I am finally going to make macaroons. Let me just tell you, it took me almost four hours to make them. The recipe I used was so helpful, it even had a video to explain what to do. I was so excited!

I find that baking is a great way to let loose. It is a great outlet for any reason; escape boredom, eat your feelings (to a certain extent) or if you just want something sweet to share with friends and family.

I was so worried that they would rise when they baked, they did! 

beautiful raspberry butter cream filling. 


plenty to share! 




beautiful details
 Tomorrow on Valentine's Day, I am probably going to bring some to school to hand out to some friends. I cannot wait to show off my beautiful work of art.

I hope you take time today to do something that you love to do. You are very important and need to spend quality time doing things that you love!
