this was a mixed bag week.  lots of stuff going on.  our downstairs bathroom is totally torn up which in turn has turned the entire down stairs upside down.  i can never figure out how one small project can spill over into so many  other areas.  but... it's all worth it.
at least  i keep telling myself it will be.
it's easy to forget all the progress we have made if i focus on the mess....

so,  in the mean time i'll just keep cooking so the house smells good.  yesterday i made these sweet little heart shaped cinnamon rolls.  they were really good and they looked really cute....

find the recipe here   i stuck with plain vanilla drizzle rather than maple.  i just shaped the rolls into hearts.

                                                loving my new french press coffee pot.

i finally finished a book i have been reading for several weeks. it wasn't always easy reading as some of the story is so difficult to read.  "global mom" is a heart wrenching story of family, the sacrifices for a career, living in eight countries, acquiring sixteen addresses,  the joys, the hardships, and the journey itself.  it was written by the wife of one of our vp's in germany.  i found it really interesting. living in this global world has it's challenges for sure. remaining a loving intact family while maneuvering this global world takes your whole heart.

looking ahead....
what better way to combat this winter weather than by looking ahead to spring.  remember to put your clocks ahead one hour tonight.  one extra hour of day light starting tomorrow.
in celebration i am trying this beautiful spring cocktail tonight, if nothing else it looks beautiful.

pink lady cocktail

1 1/2 oz gin or vodka
3/4 oz apple jack
1/4 oz lemon juice
1-2 dashes of grenadine
1 egg white.

pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker. shake first with no ice then
add ice and shake vigorously. garnish with a lemon twist or a cherry.

here's to spring.  happy saturday.

love sent, xo
