15 of my Favorite Feelings


We all have little things that make us smile: objects -- moments -- feelings. Somehow, feelings seem to get overlooked often. There are many feelings that make me happy, touch upon a certain sentiment (no pun intended), generate a sense of comfort, and so on. Although we all have them, it seems that some people are more perceptive of their own feelings than others. I happen to be quite perceptive of what and when I feel, so I decided I'd share a list of 15 of my favorite feelings -- perhaps ones that will resonate with you, spark thought about your own favorite feelings, and/or shed light upon these overlooked wonders overall.

PUMPKIN ROLL with Cream Cheese Frosting



Happy belated Thanksgiving (to those of you who celebrate/live in the US)! Thanksgiving is all about the food, and I'm a person with a huge sweet tooth. As my sister and I were saying, we may as well just skip the dinner part if it means we can double the amount of dessert we're allowed to consume (within the boundaries of what's socially acceptable, that is).

I'm not a pie person. Are many people even pie people? Who really likes pie? I'm not opposed to pie, but I would much rather have cake or some other, more decadent dessert over pie. I'm using the word pie a lot.

The solution? My sister and I baked this Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Frosting (2 of them, as we had quite a lot of people at our Thanksgiving celebration), and it was a huge hit. I figured it'd be worth sharing, despite the fact that Thanksgiving has now come and gone. Who says one can't enjoy fall flavors at all times of the year?
