This past week in my tizzy of what I’m foolishly calling a “quarter life crisis,” I decided to do some things that just felt good. No matter how you week is shaping up, I highly recommend you do at least one of the following things:
Here’s a peek into my life via cake…
There’s seemingly not a whole lot going on there, but wait…it’s just like me: highly caffeinated, layered, a little crumbly in the middle, but sweet, and dark… Dark like my soul. (well, scratch that last part, but it IS delicious!)
Truth: I probably drink too much coffee (but I really just drink it so I can make jokes about how I like my coffee like I like my men.)
Truth: I have layers, but I like to think that they’re sweet like this cake.
Truth: I’ve got a lot going on what with moving, a new job, and trying to figure out life, so it makes me feel a little crumbly. (but on the honor system, this cake was actually really dense- not crumbly, but I didn’t love the idea of calling myself dense.)
Truth: I’m super sweet!…or at least I try. (the darkness only comes out during a full moon.)
So I made myself a birthday cake. It worked out perfectly- I needed to make a new recipe this week, and I love nothing more than people gushing about my delicious creations! :) Soooooooooooooo I scoured my favorite food blogs, and finally embraced this luscious coffee coffee cake from the Pioneer Woman. Your eyes don’t deceive you; that is a rectangular cake- ya make do with what you have! :D It was fantastic.
**French phrase for fun!
Vérité: cinq personnes m’ont demandé si j’étais française la semaine dernière!
Truth: five people asked me if I was French last week! :)
