Around My Home Today



[photos taken by me]
Look at all the wonderful things I can see around my home this morning. Freshly baked cupcakes waiting to be iced. Roses from my garden thrown into a vintage bottle and butter that is melting down to room temperature on my kitchen bench top (so as I can ice my cakes). These are the things that are making me smile today.
