…but won’t because I have nightmares about finding dead mice all over my kitchen. Gah. I need to just grow up and stop being a frustrated wuss about this, right? I’m working on fixing the problem, but in the meantime I need to just get over it and let the pumpkin and apple smells take me over. I’m trying. Really. So, if I wasn’t totally turned off by baking at home, here are a few things that I’d particularly like to make for you.
Life is moving at a million miles right now, but I actually love it. There are so many things keeping me on my toes and going non-stop: traveling, time changes, fun little adventures, new friends, new work, catchy pop songs, and (the best thing) the onset of spring weather!
I have so much energy and I’m exhausted at the same time. Which is why I randomly baked 60 of these chocolate chip, pecan, oatmeal cookies the other night. I typically have a pretty early bedtime, but I found myself starting to play around with random ingredients in my pantry and make these little guys around midnight. Maybe it was daylight savings messing with me. Maybe I’ve been itching to get creative in the kitchen. Maybe I wanted a few more hours in the day to listen to “Call Me Maybe” on repeat?
These aren’t the best cookies. I mean, they’re good, just the recipe isn’t anything special, which is why I’m not sharing it. Because that’s not the point. The point is that I love life right now. It’s warm and random and adventurous. Just like the cookies. I love life enough to stay up way past my bedtime and do things I wouldn’t normally do. I love it enough to forget a few blog posts here and there.
And it seriously feels so good.
If I disappear for a little while, don’t fret. I’m just skipping down cherry-blossom lined streets in a flouncy spring dress, shamelessly dancing to One Direction, with an iced coffee and cookie in hand. If anything, it’s all wonderful inspiration – exactly what I need in life and for this space right now.
