Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 8/22/15

Posted on August 22, 2015

Life Updates:

Birthdays are similar to celebrating the New Year in that they give you a time to reflect on where you are in life and what you want to do to make the next year better and more fulfilling. I actually hadn’t been thinking too much about my birthday (hello, mom life), but coincidentally I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I want for myself right now.

Without going into all the different thoughts that scramble through my brain, I will say that I’m very excited about a new and refreshed motivation for work. When L was born, he became my sole focus and the last ten months have been pretty darn amazing, but I’m finally feeling like it’s time for something else, too.

So happy after napping!

Happy baby post nap!

As a result, you will start seeing more posts here (think lots of recipes just in time for baking season!). I’d love to hear if there is anything you are looking for. In addition, I’m going to work on evolving these weekly posts to have a little more content and more pretty pictures (or baby pictures!). Again, if there is anything you want to see I’m all ears.

Oh yeah, I caved and started using Snapchat for more than just random pictures and videos to send to my sister. I have no idea if I’m doing it “right” and I’m pretty sure you can find me @KeepItSweetDesserts (and if not maybe @keepitsweet_ll). It’s kind of fun sharing random pictures and videos throughout the day.

P.S. Matt baked for me for my birthday! Remember this cookie cake? We ate it warm right out of the oven with salted caramel ice cream. The best.
