(re)capturing the fun & wonder



I have no idea where the time has gone. Really, it’s just flown past me in a blur of moments. So much so that I’m quite speechless over this milestone.

My darling Maggie is ten today.

To celebrate, she had three friends over for a sleepover last night. They chattered, and giggled, and whispered until two in the morning. They composed songs about young love (!!), and played hide and seek. They played truth without the dare because dares are so embarrassing.

They ate home made pizzas of their own designs, and Petit Fours of Maggie’s.

Petit Fours

Our version of Petit Fours is very easy; I just chilled a devil’s food cake long enough that it was firm enough to cut smoothly. Cut out heart shapes with a cookie cutter (and made cake balls with the left-overs), then we drizzled icing and sprinkled our decorations. I love easy.
