Carrot Cake with Cashew Frosting. A family favorite that I have not made for some time. I made this for ash’s 1st month celebration and several birthdays too.
Just before Armand and I started dating, I fell quite ill while finishing my hons thesis. He bought carrot cake from miss mauds and that would be the only thing I could stomach. A slice would last me for a few days.
Fast forward to this week, ash asked me to bake carrot cake last Friday... well, I’m glad he did because I am down with a cold, stuffy nose and all. Car battery also died, having a clingy toddler as he is recovering too. Oh and since I’m unwell, I won’t make it down to see the usual crew this evening for a workout. So I’m eating cake. At least it is packed full of carrots, and with only 1/4 cup of honey in the whole cake, I am completely enjoying every single bite. That brought me back to those good old days... except I make my own carrot cake now 😂
On the bright side, we did make it to swimming, no one was hurt, the boys were sweet and loving, sun is out and laundry is done. Just another day in #mummyland#partytimesahm funny enough, my daily verse today was “do not be anxious about tomorrow” matthew 6

Hello first weekend of Winter. Parenthood has taught me resilience. To operate with the least sleep ever. The past 2-3 weeks hasn’t been the greatest. This morning, we snuggled in bed with our boys... after a night of playing musical rooms anyway. As I lay in bed, cradling Ari, breastfeeding and just trying to catch that “5 more mins” I hear Asher chatting with hubby. I hear smiles and cheeky laughs. Then I tell myself ... “It’s ok.” “It’s ok to just stay in the moment despite feeling exhausted.” “It’s ok to savor the cuddles. The feel of ari curling up to me. His wide eyes looking up to me like I’m his world”
“It’s ok to smile through the tiredness, when I hear Ash laugh as he woke hubby up”
It’s also ok.. to savour this moment when Ari fell asleep in the car... and thinking... here is to an hr of peace and quiet listening to the sermon on radio in the car by myself 🙈
