I may not like the heat, but it is absolutely creating a beautiful day. Oh, and I get to leave work in 2 1/2 hours, so I get to go and enjoy it. Thank goodness for the orthodontist (I never thought I'd think that)

During General Conference I really began thinking about life and the decisions that I was/am facing. It was Elder Steven E. Snow's talk that really got me going and got me incredibly excited, even confident in my decision that indeed, it is time for me to get on with my life. I haven't remained at home out of pure convenience, although it has helped enormously (thanks mom and dad!), or out of fear of doing something else (well, maybe a little), the timing has just been right. I needed to be at home to figure some things out, to figure out who I am and what I want out of my life. I have had some incredible experiences here, I love my job and have received a great education in the work force. The time has come though, to get on with my life, to do something. I still don't know what the right decision for me is. I have applications in and I'm making plans as if I were doing both and I hope that whatever is holding me back from making the decision that I want/need will either disappear, or I'll know how to conquer it. This may be one of those times that I take a step in the dark, that leap of faith, and proceed with my life.
Until I get my thoughts sorted, I feel I must escape from my thoughts, at least for a bit, and resume the current life and responsibilities that I have. Besides, I have a conference call in an hour, lunch to eat, and work to do. Duty calls - thank goodness!
Happy Friday! I hope you have some great weekend plans.

After I finished my apron we pulled out the quilt we started a couple of months ago and finished sewing the top layer together. At this moment there is a quilting frame in our living room just waiting to be sewn up - our lives for the next few days, uh - weeks?, I mean months?? Sure hope not! Pictures of both projects coming soon.

Check this out - inspiring!
Anyway, the world is once again good and I am looking forward to everything that is coming my way.

I made a batch of cherry chip and a batch of yellow cakes. Then I decided to top them with flowers that I piped out of colored white chocolate. I had a blast baking and piping and piping and baking. They turned out to be the perfect springtime cupcakes, Easter cakes, and April 11th cakes!!
Enjoy the day!

So, Happy April 3rd. I'm looking forward to April 11th (the best day ever, in case you haven't heard) and will explain that one another time.
