Good morning! Hope your weekend is off to a good start! This morning, I ran a 10K on the Isle of Palms.  I ran the same race last year . Last year, I finished in 50 minutes & 48 seconds….this year, official time was 48 minutes & 01 second!! Some pictures from the event. T-shirt & bib:

Whoop, whoop!

I realized yesterday that I have been posting a LOT of baked goods. I promise I am still cooking, my baking has just been a lot more interesting ;). I also realized yesterday that I had some eggs that were approaching their best by date….so I decided to bake some more.
