I know…I’m late, always late… Thank you for the Birthday and Halloween wishes…

The problem is that I’ve so many things to do that I begin 100 things all toghether and at the end I realize that I’ve done nothing at all!
I’ve to learn to do one thing at the time and to keep the commitments! In this period I feel so enthusiastic for what I’m doing…. Bake, photos, projects, ideas that I’ve left aside my blog and your comments and I didn’t visit you as I used to do… That’s bad… You are my daily inspiration!

So this is a summary of my last week…

My birthday… October 28… I’m 35 old enough to be called Madam but young enough to feel free, alive and with a lot of opportunies to catch!

I’ve celebrated till sunday! With family and friends!

Then I’ve baked a lot… all my birthday’s cakes and Halloween’s cake and cookies! I love to bake and I’m so satisfied when I do something good … In the past weeks I’ve made macarons, I’ve decorated my birthday cake, I’ve made blueberry cookies and lately a chocolate “monster” halloween cake and “booh” cookies! Everything came out so yummy! You have to trust me… I do not have any evidences left…

Chocolate sponge cake with raspberry cream cheese and covered with royal icing and decorated with chocolate!

Halloween cake … sorry for the bad pic but I was late for dinner that day …

and my cinnamon halloween cookies!

We had a great Halloween/Birthday dinner with friends at my best friend’s house!

On Sunday we went to Tuscany for visiting my relatives and to stay with my granny. It was a great day… sunny and warm but with fall colors! I love this period of the year, don’t you?

This is it! My last week… Now it’s time to go to bed! See you tomorrow!

    Wonderful! Sounds like a fabulous weekend. And I have to agree with you on the "commitments" issue. I need to get in the mind set that you only live once and this thing called "work" is not your only job in life! I'm trying to get back into my drawing. I bought some more art supplies. Excited for them to come in the mail. Hopefully soon I can start posting my sketches! And then of course buying a camera so that I can finally take pictures whenever I want and not just when I borrow someones! Have a great day!
