Hello friends! I took a little blog break; I needed recharging. Mat is starting an MBA program, summer is dwindling, there are times to be savored so savoring I did.

I enjoyed sunflowers around the house
Time with this cute, fluffy guy
Treasure hunting at sleepy poet {I loved this reminds me of New Zealand... I should have bought it. Perhaps I'll go back}
And last but not least, I did some baking. I don't know what possessed me to make a funfetti cake, but I'm so glad that I did. We had friends over for game night and shared. I gotta tell you, the best part of the cake was the homemade icing.
Recipe for Strawberry Icing:
1/2 cup of strawberries, fresh or frozen, thawed and pureed
1 cup (2 sticks of butter)
pinch of salt
3 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1) Beat butter and salt together in a stand mixer until light and fluffy (approx 5 minutes)
2) Add vanilla and three tablespoons of pureed strawberries and mix until well blended
