A dear friend of ours birthday is today so I made her birthday confetti chocolates.
I love the whimsical quality that brightly colored sprinkles always bring to anything. 🙂
A Happy Birthday bar just for her and mini squares for sharing.
Wrapped up in a playfully colored tin with ribbon on top.
Happy Birthday, V! We love you!
I think this very well is my favorite hand-made gift to date. Also the most tedious to make might I add. Talk about a hand cramp after I curling more ribbon than I normally do in an entire Christmas season. 😉
Well worth it though I think, take a look!!
I portioned the cocoa and marshmallows into individual serving size bags.
Then I dipped spoons to stir the cocoa with into chocolate and added festive sprinkles.
In total I made twenty-nine! I hope all the recipients enjoy their cocoa on Christmas morning made with my special ingredient, LOVE!
I had no energy what so ever and spent my days day dreaming of it being bedtime already.
I thought Spring was supposed to boost your energy, not deplete it! 😛
So as a result I ended up getting behind on just about everything in my life and blogging was no exception.
Actually it was probably the first thing I cut trying to conserve energy 😉 because photo editing and actually sitting down to put thought to keyboard can be a bit energy zapping sometimes.
While on my little mental vacation I forgot all about my one year blogiversary on April 26th. It seriously just dawned on me today!
Honestly though, it truly has been a great first year of blogging and Life’s Moments has come to feel like home to me.
I love documenting so many of the special moments in my family’s life so that we can look back fondly at them one day and smile. ♥
I want to say thank you to everyone who finds an interest in my blog and the snippets that I share of our lives.
Also, thank you to everyone who takes the time to comment and even to those who do not because I know you still return time and time again. 🙂
And I am thankful to have made some extremely talented and kind blogging friends along the way.
I hope you all will continue along side me for many years to come!
Yesterday was a family friend’s Birthday.
She is a colleague of Mister Mister’s mom and a very sweet person.
I baked her a cake and Mister Mister, Lovey and I delivered it to their office for the Birthday girl. 🙂
I made a “perfectly chocolate” cake, that’s what the recipe is called. 😉
This was my first time making whip cream from scratch.
I was a bit nervous to make it because I do not have an electric mixer. It’s on the top of my wish list though, trust me!
So I whipped it up by hand, even Mister Mister lended a hand with the mixing because I thought my arm was going to fall off! 😉
Some team work later it whipped up perfectly and I was very happy with how it turned out.
I don’t think I will be buying the can kind anymore, I had no idea how much better it is homemade!
We hope you had a very Happy Birthday, V! xo
