Comfort Knitting

You’ve heard of comfort food right?  This morning I told Chris I didn’t feel well and I needed comfort knitting.  It’s that knitting that isn’t frivolous and isn’t fancy.  It just makes you feel good.  And usually it’s fast.  I think this is part of why people knit dish clothes (although I’ve never done it…

Knowing right from wrong.

I’m completely jonesing for Magnolia Bakery cupcakes.  (and apparently I’m not the only one in this house who is – just saying).  If we were in New York I’d already be down on Bleeker Street deciding between white cake and red velvet.  (oh heck I’d pick red velvet if it was available we all know…
