I hide myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too-
And angels know the rest.

I hide myself within my flower,
That,f ading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness.

-Emily Dickinson

I found myself
Amidst the colors
Of a long lost universe
That has slowly forgotten its own name

Today was one of those mornings when I woke up feeling like a professional chef. My determination to make one of my fantastic breakfast creations took over and I headed down to the kitchen to put on my pink apron and master chef hat. Just roll with it, ok? Given my passion for breakfast foods and sweet things I decided to attempt a homemade version of pancakes. Or maybe because I forgot about the pre-made aunt jemima pancake mix laying around. Who knows. 

Homemade Pancakes
(makes two)

-1 cup all-purpose flour 
-2 tablespoons sugar (or 3, or 4, or a million cups. just sayin')
-1 cup milk
-1 egg
-1 tablespoon vegetable oil
-a majestically grand amount of chocolate chips, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, or any kind of berry to put in your pancake. (Notice the emphasis on the amount of chocolate needed.)
-2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
-2 teaspoons baking powder to make those pancakes fluffy-ish. 
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-more chocolate chips to put as a final topping and make it look pretty. (Again, and I cannot stress this point enough: CHOCOLATE.)

Mix the dry ingredients apart from the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, making a gooey batter, or something liquid enough to look like actual pancake batter. Spray a pan with non-stick vegetable oil and pour some of the mixture. Add the chocolate chip + berries as desired and gently cover them with a little more batter. Wait for the pancake to start bubbling and then flip. When ready, serve on a colorful plate and top it with more chocolate chips (pancakes will be warm enough to lightly melt the chocolate chips, a.k.a heaven). Decorate plate with pretty fruits and confectioners sugar. Put plate on the table and sprinkle the pancakes with a touch of cinnamon and fairy dust to make them out of this world (get it? out of this world. hahahaha). Serve with a cup of warm milk and eat. Or take artsy pictures of your creation until you realize the pancakes are all cold and hard. Yay.

Bon appetite! 

With Love, 
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” 

-Terry Pratchett

Without further ado, here's a little bit of Perú. I leave it in your hands to finish the task and travel yourself so as to come back with a heart and mind that has been changed in some magical little way. 

So, after hours of browsing through Pinterest and Tumblr and all sorts of inspiring online social media in search of utterly amazing bedrooms to fall in love with, I finally took up the courage (a.k.a.-pure laziness) to actually do something to my room. Obviously, it never turns out to be even a little bit like the magazinelookingincrediblyamazing bedroom your wannabe-designer brain imagines, but... At least you can get a kick out of taking pictures of it. 

Enjoy getting inspired!
