These cookies are a tribute to one AMAZING woman who, while fighting breast cancer, continued to train and successfully competed in an iron man competition. She then topped that off with a marathon. Some people defy the imagination.
When she was going through her treatment, she and her friends would wear pink wigs in solidarity and they had little paper baseball caps on a stick that were part of their celebrating “fun without cancer.”
Instructions: old school classroom doors, Room 202. Got it. Meanwhile, I am inspired by (the many fabulous cookie decorators out there but on this day) the water color effect used by the unbelievable, uber talented Angela at The Painted Box. And also the mad skill painting of A+++ artist Molly at TheGingerBites. And the results were…
One might say that I am a bit sPUNky at Halloween. No BONES about it…

Yes, I really do know the most incredible people. Seriously. Accomplished, interesting, nuanced folks. Dan is one of those “complete package” guys. He has made me chortle with laughter, tear up at his kindness, and shake my head at what can fit in his 24 hour day. So, my word play cohort, go forth and rock Stanford Law School!
It was only a matter of time, living here in Denver, that this order would happen. Football is king.
There is so much more to being engaged now than when I was going through that moment of my life. Now there are fun ways to ask friends and family to be in the bridal party (ahem, like cookie boxes!) and the wonderful news is celebrated with engagement parties. Definitely showing my age by becoming aware of such norms just within the past year or two…
A wonderful repeat customer’s daughter just became engaged and I was so happy to create the “will you be my bridesmaid” boxes and the cookies for the engagement party. Thanks Jennifer!!!

That ring got bling!
Just the right size….
Joan and Steve have floated into wedded bliss. Joan has sailed all of her life, even traveling abroad to compete for her university team! So it made complete sense that they choose a nautical theme for their ocean side wedding. May their marriage be ‘anchored’ by humor and commitment and their love be as wide as the sea.
The image from their invite that was my inspiration…
Lots and lots of guests for lots and lots of fun.
