Let Them Eat Cake

Can you eat your cake and have it to?


I think the little joys in life make it a little more possible to do that....


taking the time to read


indulging every so often with dessert


spending time with those you love


hanging out with good friends


taking some time for yourself to relax


and fashion...or any of the things in life that make you happy, whatever they may be.

GOODMORNING BEAUTIFUL!!!! Oh, I was so tired last night that I am barely coming here now. What a collection of FABULOUS PINKS and that cream on the cake!!!! WOW!!! And would I love to find a copy of a pink vintage book like that of Jane Eyre! Thank you dearest for finding my Orange post and perusing it; how KIND OF YOU to take the time! And time...Oh, I cannot wait to have more of that once school is out after June 10. I cannot wait to spend more time creating for I too love to write, draw and craft glittered things. Blogland has provided me with wonderful friends. Well, I hope your dream comes true to see your dear friend in L.A.....at least you are in California. I was born there you know, and have been away for about 25 with occasional visits. We visited my sister in law last summer in Northern Ca. and it was a blast. I saw Berkely and other Northern towns that were stunning. Well dear, have a beautiful day; I am off to finish off the remaining 6th week of school...lots to do!

LOVE this post. I recently read that the actual saying was "let them eat brioche." Who knew?! (Since I didn't hear it from a food historian, I wasn't 100% sold.) Though, I suppose brioche is just as tasty. Almost. Happy Friday!

Oh sweet darling, reading your message made me smile.
I would absolutely love a gift from you. Thank you. :).
How are you?
School is almost over. Finals are driving me crazy. My eyes are getting darker. Also, you won't believe what I did to my sweet boy. I called him up this morning and asked him never to call me again. But he still did. 4 times today. He doesn't understand what went wrong. I don't either. Oh dear, he did nothing. But I just hurt him. It's me this time. Being selfish. Perhaps, I'm just scared.


LOVE!
