    Although last month was difficult with our loses a new month has brought new hope.
    I poured myself a cup of tea and read a spell...
    This recipe looks delish. What a charming bread bowl, such a nice change from the traditional round. I will have to give this a try.

    I got such a chuckle from seeing your adorable "Bunnie" triffle. I'm sure it was a big hit!
    Looks like you've been up to a lot of fun!
    I would love to meet my blog buddies too.

    I'm so excited to see spring blooms popping up. I look forward to applying the inspirational palette of colors into a few DIY decorations and gifts, with a little baking/cooking in between.
    Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
    It's definitely invigorating.

    Sweet wishes,
