easy as 1

Today we went to our local Albertson's, the all-purpose grocery store with busy customers stocking up on their grilling needs. However we were greeted by an unexpected display just before the rotisserie chickens. There was a stand of cakes and cookies, aside a table with colorful toppings, to use for decorating.

Allan quickly dashed to his needs while Olivia and I found ourselves stalled, reviewing all the cool little edibles and trinkets. In no time the Albertson's baker, Jeff Collins, who has been working in the pastry department since 1999, proudly showed us a demonstration of his work. He created flowers and swirls with colored frosting that sprouts from plastic baggies and how to use the various candies as flourishes.

I am so excited that you have a blog. I have been a subscriber to Romantic Homes for many years and I have also counted Laguna Beach as one of my favorite places to visit for a long time. The beach towns in California are so different than the beach towns on the East Coast. I am enchanted that I can get a coffee and just walk across the street to sit on a bench and read with the ocean at my feet.

So, welcome to blogland and congratulations on your impending motherhood.
