Since my posts have been so...ummm...depressive lately, I thought I'd share something really fun KB and I did over the weekend. We made a cake. Doesn't look the greatest, but it was a labor of love. I guess like our M now. It sure isn't perfect, but with time, practice and a lot of work it'll get better.

Edit for me forgetting to link right.

That cake is a true Treasure!

Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

Awesome cake!

Nice work, Heart and KB.

My husband and I love cakewrecks and have joked about trying one of our own. I'm sure ours would be a cakewreck but it would be a lot of fun trying.

Growing forward
