Some sweets.

Before melancholy Sandra took residence, I was a busy little baker.  Lots and lots of cake pops for a neighbor’s niece’s shower.

And cupcake “apples” for the staff at our new elementary school.

Have I mentioned that our children are headed to a new school this year?  They adored (and I mean adored) their former school—especially their teachers, as did we.  At first, we were heartbroken to hear we were leaving.  But this brand new school is opening within walking distance of our home.  And luckily, it promises to be something very special as well.  

I'm on the inaugural PTO board and we’ve organized all sorts of fun things for the teachers and staff.  Most recently was a luncheon and I offered to bring dessert.  96 cupcakes later, I had these.

And because I wanted them to be cutely displayed at their luncheon, I assembled tiered stands out of dollar store finds.

Hopefully, the teachers who get Leo and Max this year won’t refer to me as the crazy cupcake lady who has too much time on her hands.

You are ridiculous (but in an awesome sort of way). Hope to see you soon!

Those are adorable! I bet they are delicious too! Lucky teachers....My mom used to make treats for my whole class every year I was in elementary school. I can't wait to do that for my kids.

Been thinking about you lately. Seems there is sadness all around. Plenty here, too. I'm many years ahead of you but that kind of news still weighs heavy on my heart. Don't think I would want it not to. Your melancholy means you care. But I do hope it is easing up.
