i resolve to be
tender with the young
compassionate with the aged
sympathetic with the striving
tolerant of the weak and wrong
~p. legge~
i also resolve not to devour these scrumptious blue eggs in one sitting....
i really think they fell from heaven
filled with chewy caramel and covered with a crunchy shell
joy x 100....correction joy x 1000
off to visit my parents for a few days....will be back soon

I feel like I have been out of blogland for so long and missed out on too many of your cute posts! (I adore that picture of the red velvet cupcake .... soooooo cute!!!) These eggs are darling too. They look like the cadbury mini eggs but I didn't know they made them with caramel - those will be worth a special trip to the store to get!

Enjoy your little vacay with your parents! xoxo
