Check this out....
I mean the colours and the creativity...wow. It stirs something in my soul, something I don't really have time to answer right now but I feel like there will be a time for this too, as season for my soul as it were.
Seasons. It's something I feel God has been speaking to me about. There will be time for my stuff, time to learn new things and explore my creative side, time to sit and visit and time for less "dirt-under-your fingernails" and "laundry by the truck load" kind of tasks.
I can wait! but at the same time I'm learning to appreciate the season I'm in (or I pray I am). The time of chubby cheeks and sticky fingers, of boys on the cusp of manhood and houses on the brink craziness. There's joy here in the confusion and chaos and mess too!
Oh and I wanted to share this. I adjusted my mil's famous (well to us anyway) chocolate cake recipe to make it lower fat and moist at the same time. It's pretty yummy! If you don't have spelt flour just use whole wheat or white. It will still be amazing!

I use a cream cheese icing but it's up to you:)
This is what we'll be having for dessert tonight....mmmmmmmmmmmm!
