Little Apricot Lavender Cakes

    My favorite part about summer is the simplicity of the season. Long, sunny days. Lazy evenings. Hot afternoons reading on the beach. There isn’t too much to do or work for.

    I’m 20!

    I’ve actually been 20 for a few weeks now. This post was supposed to go up weeks ago, in which case sprinkles and a birthday recap would feel a lot more relevant. Buuuut then I had technical difficulties, and here we are now. Oops.

    Cardamom Strawberry Cake

    Hello internet! It’s been a really long time.

    The last time I posted on this blog I was a senior in high school, terrified of graduating and becoming a real person. Now I’m about to enter my junior year of college (what???) and turning 20 tomorrow (double what???). Clearly a lot has changed.


    But in a lot of ways, things are still the same. I am still a book nerd (officially, too–I’m an English major). I still write. I still love elephants and cookie dough ice cream and the number 13.

    And, of course, I still bake.

It’s a good freak out, I think, but maybe it’s also a little bad. It’s melancholy. Nostalgic. Slightly regretful. Utterly, overwhelmingly anxious.

    This is a post about coping.
