When life starts to go pear shaped and it feels as if nothing is right in the world, I take solace knowing that I can go to my kitchen and come out with something warm and comforting and whole. Cooking brings me to a world that is filled with smells, whisks, frostings, tastes, and sometimes even messes. But, I know that at the end of the recipe if I add enough sugar it always turns out sweet. Then, after my world starts to come back to me, I take myself to the crafting table and play with pretty fabrics and sparkles. It’s everything I need to feel refreshed and ready for a new day!
