I'm Still Here (and a lot has happened!)

Since my last post, we have moved to another state, are staying with my parents, my husband landed a great job, we are in the process of buying a house and most exciting of all, baby O turned one! Phew. Now I need a nap. Despite the tiredness we're all experiencing, we are happy and well and grateful for all the good things that have happened in the last three weeks. 
Here's a peek at the little one's party we had last weekend. There was family, cupcakes and lots of lovely presents. Despite the lack of captured smiles from the kiddo, he had a splendid time and a good long nap once the festivities wound down:

I gave a new healthy recipe a try for Ollie's cupcakes: Gluten and grain free almond, lemon and blueberry. Pictured on the round box with the lavender colored frosting, they were moist, flavorful and a big hit all around, thankfully. I've never baked with blanched almond flour before, but let me tell ya - it makes a mean baked good and I'm going to start keeping it on hand. Here's the link for the cupcakes if you'd like to give it a go. 

No party's complete at our house without a handmade garland of some kind...
