So I posted and started my New Year's resolutions five days ago. I've since had a week full of fulfilling promises to myself, and others, and am actually feeling really good in this moment - like, less broken than last year. ;) Every night this week I cooked a meal from scratch (#1), I've done so in a way that chips away at all the half-full bags/boxes/cans of food lining kitchen shelves (#3), and then finished the work week of by starting-up Fabulous Fridays again with Paula Deen's incredible Southwest Georgia Pound Cake (#2). (In addition, I've sold or given away something on Craigslist everyday - part of a very private NY resolution that I didn't dare put down on paper.)
Again, feeling really, really good.
To top-off all the goodness that comes with an early morning cake baking party, complimented by the calm of a well-organized morning routine with school kids (#5), I took Mr. Noodle and his not-so-really-under-the-weather-anymore big brother to Fairyland for some magic moments. Happy weekend!
