Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing a lot of deep, inner thinking. I have been reflecting on some feelings that I have been experiencing. Some of these feeling I knew why I had them and where they were coming from but others, I just couldn't place where they came from or how to deal with them. I am happy to say that I found some clarity recently and have had such a pure mind these past couple days.

Last Thursday, Reon and I were watching Grey's Anatomy, one of our favorite shows (yes we do have several!). Most of the time I try reflect on things that occur or are said in the episode, because I truly feel that we can all relate to something that happens in each episode. If anyone watches, you will understand what I am about to say.... the end of the show is always so crucial to the main theme and/or feelings that have been weaved into the plot. The writers will recap a final "point" that is usually intelligent and meaningful. Often times I take these in and undoubtedly it changes my life in a small, but powerful way. However, sometimes I don't notice it because it is is so subtle.

Last week's epilogue crashed into my life with such power that I had to write it down. So, I leave you with this remarkable statement. I hope it brings you as much power as it brought me

"We don't wish for easy stuff. We wish for big things; that are ambitious and out of reach. We wish because we need help and we're scared, and we know we may be asking too much. We will wish though, because sometimes, they come true."

Let me tell you ---------

I have been designing, shopping and creating this Vegas themed birthday cake for our friend's 30th birthday party tonight. Obviously, it is a Vegas themed party and should be a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I used fondant to create the poker chips and cards and then painted on them with icing die to create the design. The rest is frosting- YUM! TFL!

(Pictures of the party coming soon!)

This month's kit from YMBD was filled with fun snow type elements. I had some great pictures that I have been meaning to scrapbook (even some from years ago!) It was hard to get started because the timing was a tad hectic, but overall I am pleased with how everything turned out!
