    "Kids are super easy. It’s being an adult that’s hard." @girlshbo @lenadunham This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith.

betty crocker cupcakes with marshmallow glaze.

DSCN5511DSCN5507

we were organizing our pantry when we came across a box of betty crocker cake mix. i should make cupcakes, i thought.

upon completion, i realized that we did not have any icing sugar. i did, however, have a new-found supply of marshmallows.

i was pleasantly surprised when google informed me that marshmallows could serve as the basis for an icing recipe. i was even more surprised when it turned out to be utterly delicious!

i also added sprinkles, which again was discovered in our pantry.

marshmallow icing

2 egg whites

1 1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup cold water

1 1/2 tsp light corn syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup miniature marshmallows

put egg whites, sugar, water, and syrup in top of double boiler. beat until mixed well. place over rapidly boiling water. beat constantly with electric beater while it cooks for 7 minutes or until it will stand in peaks when beater is raised. remove from heat.

stir in marshmallows and vanilla. beat until they melt.

(i made this recipe a bit differently since i wanted a glaze rather than fluffy icing, but both methods are easy, quick, and equally savory!)
