When being intolerent isn’t so bad

This afternoon/evening I attended the wedding of a friend, and it was truly beautiful.  But, to be perfectly honest, the highlight of my night was being told by my bestie that she’d made a cake just for me so I didn’t miss out (and that’s on top of making the actual wedding cake too!).  I’m not going to lie, I nearly cried (tears of joy).  I am so lucky to have a friend who is so thoughtful and mindful of my food intolerances.  And I definitely stuffed my face with cupcake as soon as I got home.

Love you
xoxo

Like beautiful flowers that come out for the spring sun.

And home grown herbs.


Loving pets.

And cookies.  Chocolate Chip Cookies to be exact.
