22/52 Weeks of Gratitude

52 Weeks of More gratitude. More hope. More love.

Happy Birthday to my gorgeous sister

I feel like my sister has always been there for me when I need her, with her warm generous spirit and kind heart.

I am grateful for our bond,  for the way she always makes me laugh and for the adventures we have together.

The birthday cake: Carrot Cake with Cream cheese icing adapted from an old Women's Weekly Carrot Cake recipe. 
To add wholesome goodness I used organic carrots, replaced white flour for wholewheat, vegetable oil for cold pressed olive oil, added yoghurt and halved the amount of sugar. 

(We celebrated a few weeks ago, but with hours in front of a computer at work I just didn't feel like spending more time on the computer. The balancing act of having computers in our lives so much these days can be tricky.)

Joining in for 52 weeks of gratitude here.
