The Sunday Post: Getting Closer

This was the perfect weekend to bake. The forecast called for winter weather, including snow, which doesn’t happen very often in South Carolina. Because of that, I didn’t bring with me my snow boots or my car’s winter weather kit (including snow and ice scrapers) when I moved here in 2020. So what else is…

Blankets, and Macarons, and Cinnamon Rolls (Oh My!)

So, it’s been a while. I’ve neglected a few things over the last few weeks, including writing, reading, thanking (in my journal), and blogging. But I haven’t been idle!
