Spring break and Easter are just around the corner.
This is the first year that I have a child in school, so the break is something I get to look forward to.
A week of no schedules sounds too good to be true!
I made these flower cookies with some spring colors to remind me of the upcoming season.
Winter has been too long this year and I welcome any sign that warmer weather is almost here.
Make your favorite sugar cookie recipe:
