Pick-me up

Today I needed a pick-me up.

You know those days, probably a little far too well.

After a rough day at work and a miscommunication with some friends, I figured the perfect way to cheer myself up was to try a new recipe. I love Joy the Baker and was ready to tackle this recipe today and show off the delicious results at my in-laws Easter celebration tomorrow. Unfortunately my brand-new cake pan happened to have a leak (I had no clue those things could leak!) that went  undiscovered until a ridiculous cloud of smoke quickly overtook my kitchen and threatened to smoke us out.  In an anxious fury I rushed to the car to go buy a new pan only to end up as a heaving sobbing mess in the Starbucks drive-thru. One green tea latte later, here I am.

Searching for a pick-me up. Preferably one that cannot easily burn or smoke or leak.

I opted for soft pink tulips, my favourite candle and a book.

I don’t like feeling defeated and much less accepting defeat but sometimes we just have to know when to sit down and have a me-night or else we will end up scaring off the baristas at Starbucks.

I’m interested to know- what are some of your pick-me ups?

(P.S. my favourite candle right now is Volupsas Eden & Pear and I’m currently reading The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood.)

  1. Sorry to hear you had a bad day – it sounds like you tried to make the most of it though (: I love to cook too, and am always a little bummed when a recipe you’re really excited ends up being a mess or a full-on disaster. Hopefully your next cooking endeavor goes a lot smoother!
