A Blue Saturday with Bella

Just the two of us today!


After the storms passed we went for our runs--3 miles for her on hills, 5 for me on the flat.

She read her book. I transplanted hydrangeas.


She made me a cake. I made her a dress.

WE had severs storms pass by us too last night. I think we are in the same area of the country more or less. I live in Mt. Airy, NC. Can you share with me what state you are in? Many of your post speak of places I am familiar with.

Love your BLOG!

What a luscious looking cake slice! May I ask if the frosting is homemade? If so, would Bella be willing to share her recipe? Thank you!

Anna said...

Yes, I'm 40 now!

Frosting: I think I've posted this go-to buttercream before. It's 1/3 c. softened butter, 2 c. powdered sugar, 1 t. vanilla, 1/3 c. cocoa, and 2 or so T water. To get it nice and fluffy, use the electric mixer.

Dress will show up this week--it's gorgeous.

Anna, Happy Birthday! You don't look a day over 32! May the Lord bless you always!

And thank you for sharing that recipe. I'm just going to copy it into a document and save it. I always forget to do that. Thanks again!

Oh, that does sound like a perfect kind of day.

Happy Birthday Anna.

Rose said...

Happy birthday Anna! It just gets better once you reach 40. :)

Hi, I tried posting this before I don't think it worked, so I'll give it another try ...

Just wanted to say that I love your blog, Anna. I really don't even know you, but your blog was passed on to me by a co-worker. Looking at your beautiful photos and creations is a bright spot in my day.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and creativity!

That sounds like a wonderful day. I am not to far behind you, I will be 40 in a few months. :) You inspired me to start running again, now training for a 5k. Thanks

Such a beautiful day and post. I even read it aloud to my husband, which I never do.

Katie said...

Love how you share your talents with each other in such a special way. :-)

Happy belated birthday to you!

Blessings,

What a perfect day! We'd love to see pics of the dress. I had severe storms that day too. I'm in GA.
