What’s your pleasure?

I want to create
I don’t want to eat
I just want to bake
some kind of treat

I’ll promise you this
I’ll give it away
I won’t take a taste
I will not betray

It’s fun to measure
and mix up things
that come out pretty
and yummy for kings

So if you delight
in sweets of all types
I’d be happy to make
something tonight

♥ One Year of Blogging Anniversary ♥

In the time span of 365 days
so much has happened in wonderful ways
We’ve blown out more candles to celebrate birthdays
added new accomplishments to justify praise

At this time last year
I was nudged in arm and ear
by my son to begin this blog, despite any fear
I felt nothing but alarm, but started in low gear

So with two feet forward, pen in hand
I dove into WordPress and my blogging began
I had hopes for acceptance without a big plan
but I never would have guessed for it to turn out so grand

That publish button was scary, I confess
I clicked it, eyes closed, hoping for the best
Maybe one, two or three likes would be progress
yet, I know the numbers don’t define success

The learning curve is so large, the excitement is tangible
The friendship circle with feedback is expandable
Meeting other dear souls from all over is invaluable
A new world that shows us anything is possible

With a humble heart, a few happy tears in tow,
I have to say “thank you” for helping my blog grow
Your acceptance of my soul means more than you’ll ever know
and I can’t leave out the beautiful awards you did bestow

From my heart, I gift to you something sweet
to celebrate One Year of my blog, enjoy a treat
Indulge, just this time, over there, take the window seat
Without your support, my experience would be incomplete

I’m using pink today in memory of Mom, and
carrot cake is only one of the sweets you’ll taste – hope you like it!
It’s my utmost favorite and yes, it’s a veggie in my book! 🙂
There’s plenty of other delicious treats,
along with yummy healthy choices, too.
So, I hope you enjoy yourself and many, many thanks, again! ♥

Peace and Hugs, Lauren
