a few pretties thru the stress

Lately I've been sooo busy. I think if I've collectively spent more than 30 minutes at my place just one day this week, I'd be surprised. I like being busy though (for the most part). But right now, I'm trying to enjoy the little things, the pretty things, the things that inspire me and help me keep going.....

Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. DELISH!

PS, I want to take photos. I have access to a tripod right now. We need to get together. Library photo shoot with nerd glasses? I think so.
