I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

I love any excuse to make a chocolate cake. Last year I made a chocolate cake for Valentine's Day, and so this year I decided to make one too... but just a few days early because we had people over for dinner. I used this recipe to make it. It was really good... not the best chocolate cake I have ever made, but still really good. {I think my favorite is this recipe}

I added a little banner and put it on a new cake stand I made. Next week I will post how to make the cake stand... I have made a few lately and love them. After spending all of that time making a cake from scratch, it's nice to put it up on a pretty pedestal... like a trophy. And after my long day of baking a cake, homemade bread and lasagna all from scratch... I needed a trophy.

Chocolate is by far my favorite dessert, especially for Valentine's day.
