November 14thBirthday Girl Post!
I'm sharing my favourite birthday cake recipe with you! It's delicious and best in small doses!
2 cups sugar, 1.75 cups flour, .75 cup cocoa, 1.5 tsp baking powder, 1.5 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt, 2 eggs, 1 cup whole milk, .5 cup vegetable oil, 3 tsp vanilla extract, & 1 cup boiling water.
Mix dry, then wet. Boiling water last. 350 degrees until clean knife test.
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."
I've been listening to Marshmello's 'Happier' and Bazzi's 'Beautiful' on loop tonight.
J'aime les fleurs.
Les pivoines sont mes préférées.
Si doux, si délicat, si plein.
Fleur de mon coeur
Autumn is my season. And I've never had a pumpkin spice latte.
Raised on a farmette, autumn meant harvest. It meant seeing the toil of the spring and summer come to fruition. And pumpkins were just one of the many vegetables we harvested in the crisp fall months.
Autumn, for me, is that one last 'enjoy the outdoors' before burrowing in for the winter with cocoa and loved ones.
There's something very beautiful about nature. Even just today, I was stopped in my tracks FOUR TIMES by the colours of the changing trees. Colours that artists simply cannot achieve. The skies get more dramatic, too. The stars and moon even shine brighter.
I was born under an new moon in the cool autumn when the world was ripe and sleepy. xo, beck 01NOV18
