“An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.” -Unknown

My topic for today is MY 5TH ANNIVERSARY of having this blog. I am grateful for everyone who has stuck with me. I may not be the most consistent blogger or the most interesting but you have been here for me though it all. From my first post, “A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime” to my wedding plans and trips around the US. So much has happened in my life and I am glad I get to share it with you. I am grateful for those who have been with me the whole five years and for those who are just joining me in my adventures.

I just can’t believe that it really has been 5 years since I opened this account and began sharing my stories with the world. Literally, people from all over the world have viewed my blog, something I thought would never happen. I may not have millions of followers or be any sort of popular in the blogosphere but I am here and I am happy.

I hope you all keep coming back and enjoying my content. And for now, enjoy this amazing song that came to my mind.

So, today I would like to talk about something that occurred just a few hours ago. It really all started a couple of days ago. My soon-to-be sister-in-law has a birthday today (22) and I came up with the BRILLIANT idea to make her cake. Well, there was a cake that I had seen and I was dying to make it. HAHAHAHAHAHAH! Being more of a beginner baker, I didn’t realize how “in over my head” I was. It wasn’t horrible (it’s standing) but it wasn’t as easy as the lady made it seem. No worries, it will work.

Anyway, this is the link to the cake I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpNnCB4Mvk4&t=269

If anyone attempts it, let me know how it turns out for you! Don’t give up, either, because you CAN do it. Thankfully I had my aunt here to help me when I got frustrated. color I did seemed to break, which started my frustration. Then the frosting wasn’t spreading like she had done. Again, I am still a beginner baker and am still learning, haha. Next time I will do something a little more simple.

What have you made recently? What has made you frustrated recently? Just keep pressing on and you can get through it. The cake is only as hard to make as you let it be….and if you attempt something well about what you are capable of doing. Try going for the smaller one first 🙂

I have to get ready for the “party” see y’all on Friday!

The green, blue, and purple ones were cooling on plates...half of each of them stuck to the pans (even though I had sprayed the pans)...
