But the good news is that there is still a little love to be found in the world, dear bloggy friends! Everywhere you look, in fact!

Laura of A Dozen Eggs opened up her bake shop this weekend! Leave my blog now to go here to see her pictures! And if you are in or near the state of Vermont, you must patronize her bake shop! In addition to her amazing cookies, she now makes the most stunningly beautiful cupcakes and seven layer cookie bars and mini cheesecakes. Every last bit is from scratch, even the graham crackers she uses for....actually I am not sure what she uses them for....but she makes them herself and I think that's beyond amazing!

I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon and evening with Sadie Kate up in the Adirondacks. Sadie is still tired from all the running around with little boys and other dogs, all of whom run at the same fast speed. She had a ball though! And I had great food and lots of laughs with my family. A good time was had by all.

And last but not least, I made this jonjon as one of the gifts I am giving to Florida at her shower next weekend. I'm not bragging but I think it is pretty crazy cute. Especially for never having made one before. I still need to add the snaps tonight but other than than it's finished. I showed it to my father, who then asked me if I used a recipe. Um...I believe you mean "pattern", right Daddy-o? I thought that was cute. Anyway, the answer is yes and no. I sort of used part of a pattern (or recipe according to my father) and sort of made it up as I went along too.

Ah yes, this post feels much better than my doom-and-gloom post earlier!

I love the Adirondacks and am wondering how I can manage it a some point this summer. Where did you stay? I used to go to the Albedor Lodge when it was a restaurant and I guess now it is a private home that can be rented out for $$$. Would love to get some recommendations if you care to share. :)

Oh I actually have family in Lake George so that's where we were. And I don't usually stay overnight since it is just an hour up the road. But I am happy to ask family for recs if you are interested. There are lots of cute little old school style lodges all over the place up that way.

Thanks for the link and the lovely compliments!!
I make the graham crackers for the base of the seven layer bars.
Love the little jonjon! And is your friends name really Florida?? I had an aunt named Florida. Aunt Flo. Never heard anyone else with that name!!
BTW I don't and can't sew. I'm going to order some fabric from Spoonflower after I sell 2000 more cupcakes and then have the table "skirt" and curtains made. I could pay YOU to make the skirt? If you don't mind waiting until I raise enough $$ to order the fabric.
