Happy Camper Decorated Cookie Collection

Don’t worry….be happy. Here’s another another set of cookies with a message. :)

Confession: I hate camping! I went on exactly TWO camping trips when my kids were little (and this was probably the biggest mistake, to take babies and toddlers!)…..and hated every minute of it. I’m an inside girl who likes cleanliness and order.

So it’s a stretch for me to be happy when I’m camping. Which is exactly the point……sometimes we must do what we REALLY don’t want to do (i.e. battle cancer)…..and rather than worry, we can be happy. Each day is a gift, no matter if it is in a soggy tent with thunderstorms, or it is safe and warm (and CLEAN) in our own house.

I have certainly not mastered this message……thus the cookie collection to remind myself often.

Don’t worry…..be a HAPPY camper! ❤️

SWEET Summer (Fruit) Decorated Cookie Collection

OK…..let’s discuss one of the best parts of summer. FRUIT! haha

Since last August, I’ve been eating a plant-based diet, and FRUIT, by far, is the most delicious of all the plant foods. :)

Summer brings out the best in fruit. Most everything is in season…..and SCRUMPTIOUS.

Here’s to diving into all that fruit-y deliciousness!

Tranquil Decorated Cookie Collection

As I’ve shared before……since my cancer diagnosis, my cookie decorating has become more than a hobby. It is a way to express the messages of my heart…..whether that is where my heart actually is right now, or where it NEEDS to be.

Stress contributes to physical illness. So as my doctor has continued to reiterate every time I see her…..the goal is to practice relaxation and learn to dwell on the blessings of life. I’ve picked many words that have become part of my mantra and tranquil is one of them.

tranquil [trang-kwil]
adjective
1) free from commotion or tumult; peaceful; quiet; calm
2) free from or unaffected by disturbing emotions; unagitated; serene; placid

All of these cookies help me to dwell on peace, quiet, and calm and not be affected by all the mayhem around me. So I offer them to you as a gift……
to bring you to that sweet quiet place of serenity. ❤️

A heart at peace gives life to the body. Proverbs 14:30

Farmers Market Decorated Cookie Collection

Summer is filled with so many marvelous things. One of the best contributors is the locally fresh fruits and vegetables only found during the growing season.

It's funny......I planned on doing a farmers market themed cookie set and made a list of all the fruits and veggies I wanted to attempt. I misplaced the list and made a new one just before baking day came. I found the old list once the set was determined. I had at least 6 other produce items I had wanted to do but had forgotten about. There's SO MANY ideas for a farmers market. Thankfully I didn't attempt all of them at once! Maybe there's some left to try it again next summer. haha

Enjoy the abundance of color and yumminess this summer!
