I’m Obsessed With ___.

Told you I’d be back.

We’ve now had the internet for nearly a week.  I’ve almost gotten over the initial novelty of being able to send an email on a whim (almost), and I’m ready to dive back into Great Smitten with gusto.  Oh my dears, how I’ve missed you.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to write and come to the cold realization – once again – that I was disconnected.

It’s too painful to relive, really.

So let’s jump right into the good stuff.

 Cameo Cake with White Chocolate Icing.  More specifically, this one.

I made it for my friend Karen’s 30th birthday, and I’m not ashamed to say it was freaking amazing.  White chocolate and pecan cake with white chocolate cream cheese icing.  I die.

My friend Sally’s little cutie, Tom.

This so gorgeous ring from Flowerleaf.

This earring organizer made from an old picture frame and some girly lace.

I need something like this, because right now all my earrings are tangled up with all my necklaces in the bottom of a basket in my room.  I don’t want to talk about it.  It depresses me.

This quote, from one of my favourite authors, Madeleine L’Engle:

“Not that I am against either virtue or liberalism, but I watch in horror as a great liberal, passionately interested in the cause of -shall we say- the leper, very carefully avoids speaking to the leper in his path, in order to get on with the cause… Jesus stopped. And healed. And loved. Not causes, but people.”

See you guys tomorrow.

For real!  Yay!  Go internet!
