The Friday Five

The Friday Five |

You know those days when you wake up and your heart just feels full?

Yep, right here.

Full.  And inspired.  And humbled.  And thankful.  Especially in light of your amazing response to this post this week.  Especially thanks to one of those impromptu weeks filled with good friends, good books, good music, and — yes — some seriously good food.  And especially knowing that Easter is just almost here, where we get to do some mega celebrating and giving thanks for all things full of hope.  I’m ready for it.

Wishing you all a great and meaningful weekend.  And without further ado, here’s the Friday Five!

    Love this post and I recently made the carrot cake into cupcakes for Easter. No unnecessary additions and with freshly grated carrots! YUM!
