I’ve always had a problem with clothes. Over-stuffed closets and too much laundry. I love clothes and fun outfits, but I’m not very good at keeping everything organized. I already circulate my closet every six months between Spring and Autumn. Even with cycling clothes in and out of my closet I still end up with too much stuff.

Last November, Cheshire and I went to our first Renaissance Faire with our friends, Reese and Lydia. It was only until this last week that I remembered the hundred of photos I’d taken, and more importantly, that I hadn’t shared any yet. And so if you will, allow me to rectify the situation.

“I’m really feeling shortbread.”
“What?” I glanced up at Allan, standing absent mindedly in front of the pantry.
“I’m really feeling shortbread. Like either buying some or making some or something.”
“I can make you shortbread.” I said, turning my head back to my laptop and pulling open the ever glorious Pinterest. “What kind do you want?”

I cannot believe how well it turned out, or the amount of compliments I got on the look. It made me quickly realize how much I loved cosplay and that I wanted to do it more often, not just for Halloween.
For March, I’m trying to be more intentional. Intentional with my friendships, intentional with eating better, intentional with my body and habits. Part of this is being intentional with my day; being productive, knocking out easy every day tasks, and feeling more positive about our house and (especially) a clean kitchen.
Happy 25th Birthday to me! I love making my own birthday cake, and especially trying new techniques. It’s become a tradition for me to make my own cake for my birthday; I find a cake on pinterest that I want to try, and work my little cake magic. This year I decided on a lemon, almond, and raspberry layer cake, with cream cheese buttercream frosting, and a pink chocolate ganache drip. Delicious!
