To start off I am most thankful for my wonderful husband and for one of the best Valentine's Day we've shared. Eric sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers at work and made reservations to one of my favorite Italian restaurants! He really knows how to make me feel special!
Second...I am thrilled and honored that my Punch Drunk Love Cake made foodbuzz's Top 9 today! When I logged onto my blog early this morning and saw the GIANT jump in pageviews, I said to myself...something has happened. When I signed onto to foodbuzz, I yelled Eric's name so loud that I am sure I gave him a near heart attack. He rushed out of the shower with a bloody nose and hand full of tissues (...bad timing...:/) to see what I was yelling about! A sight that is somewhat funny now, not so much earlier today! You see, I haven't been blogging all that long, so this is pretty exciting for me! I was so upset the other day that my cake didn't come out the way I envisioned that I almost gave up on it completely and didn't post it.
So CHEERS to the little things that bring us great joy!
