Happy Thanksgiving!!

There is a lot we are thankful for this year. The big things: our love, health, home. And the small things: first steps, first words, evenings of catching our oldest daughter reading a book to her sister, sunny days in the park, playing ball with Daddy, baking cookies with Mommy, throwing leaves up in the air…. There is so much to be grateful for.

And then there is this little blog that became a big part of our life. It brought friendships, inspiration and opportunities we wouldn’t get without it. So I would like to take time and say thank you.

Thank you to you, my sweet readers. Your comments, e-mails and messages saying that you tried my recipes and enjoyed them, that they brought some sweetness to your life – they make my days!! I have so much fun playing in the kitchen and baking up treats that I can later share on this blog. Thank you for supporting me, even if I take brakes once in a while due to life happenings. icon smile Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for reading, commenting, inspiring me.


Have a wonderful, delicious and sweet Thanksgiving!!
