Happy Thanksgiving!

Chocolate Cupcakes - Happy Thanksgiving!

Thankful that my 5 year old nephew asked me to make him chocolate cupcakes with “snow frosting” for Thanksgiving dinner…even if that’s all he’ll eat. How can I say “no”?!!

Fall Sprinkle

Thankful for little things like sprinkles and having this space to tell you about my passion for all things sweet. Thankful to have you read and leave your thoughts post after post.

Around The House

Thankful for friends who know how much I miss Fall and bring me a bouquet of leaves from a trip to the mountains! Thank you C&H!!

Thankful For The Important Stuff

Thankful to my wonderful husband for his constant gift of love, friendships and laughter and for always “expecting the unexpected”….Thank you to my families both here and home. When I keep wavering like a feather you are always the rocks I rely on.

Thankful For The Little Things

Thankful to the little things in life like ribbons and polka dots, for putting a smile on my face at the oddest time of the day.

Thankful For Christmas Ornaments

Thankful that Christmas is here soon: care packages after cookie boxes after macarons after… shipped to friends and family.
Thankful that B’s family agreed to come here for Christmas dinner and letting me be their host.

Just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and give a few thanks of my own.

    I’m a bit behind in my blog reading, so a belated Thanksgiving to you! Thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful blog. Your blog has been a huge source of inspiration for me, especially as I’ve made the slow transition into being a blogger here in the US. And your photography! Sigh. Your photography makes me drool. I have a file on my computer where I save food photography that I love. I occasionally refer to it when trying to think of ways to photograph something or when I’m trying to learn a particular technique. Your photos comprise the large majority of that folder! Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚
