Life is Good


Life is good when you see random acts of kindness. Today, Laney was being a pill because I would not (could not) pick her up. Owen's teacher Mrs. Heather saw her flailing about, came over, picked her up and took her to hunt for eggs after school today. At 11:30am it had been a long day for her too, but she took the time and really made a difference in my day.

You know life is good when your 2 year old and 4 year old come home from hunting eggs at preschool and decide to refill them and hide them for their big brother.

Life is good when a 6 year old plans a surprise with his dad and remembers to make a card for his mom at school.

Life is really good when your husband brings home a Jamoca Almond Mud Pie from Baskin Robins (my all time favorite) and announces we are going out to dinner to celebrate one year of blogging.

I can't believe it has been one year already! In all honesty, I forgot. I knew it was sometime in March that I started this whole crazy blog, but things seem to be more hectic than usual here. Maybe it is the whole Easter thing in March? It seems rather fitting that the blog started with
my first fondant cake made from scratch and is now featuring one from Basking Robins. What can you do? There are only so many hours in the day and less with the whole time change thing and man are we feeling it here.

A lot has changed in one year and I am sure it will change lots more in the year to come. The beauty of SPLANEYO is I can share and remember it all - the good, the bad and the ugly.
Anymore life is chaos, life is constant change, and life really is good.

Congrats on one year of inspiration!! I always love coming here and I only have one question: will the name remain Splaneyo once your new little one arrives?

Sweet hubby, by the way...

Happy Birthday to you!

It is crazy how fast it goes. I started mine last February and totally forgot about my one year birthday.

Your cake looks scrumptious!

THANK GOODNESS for random acts of kindness. They really can make a difference in someone's day or life.

Happy Easter!

How sweet of your dear hubby to recognize your blog anniversary. I'm quite sure mine would have no idea when that was.
