Act of self-love: Love and celebrate your friends
Another Epic Weekend.
I spent so much time this weekend loving in some of the best ways I know how.
Two femme friends had birthdays on Sunday, and I baked up a storm all weekend in their honor. Cooking and baking are so important to me, and if I make food for you, it is truly because you mean the world to me. Food is one of the greatest ways I know how to nurture those I care about; it fills me up to no end.
For Jenny, on her 30th birthday: Triple Citrus Cupcakes
(recipe from the Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook)
For Devra, one of my favorite femme Jews: Hamantaschen!
(dough recipe from Smitten Kitchen, this is my first time making them, I think they’ll be even better with some slight modifications next time)
I made strawberry, apricot, and my personal fave poppyseed. They look like jewels.
The weekend was otherwise filled with so much good food, bouncing on trampolines, laughter, joy. I feel like my life is bursting at the seams right now in all the best ways possible.
I’m loving it.
