Friday Favorites from Drizzle & Dip, I Am Baker, Life Tastes Good and More

Happy Friday morning to you, today is Good Friday for Christians, the holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death. It has been strange watching Holy Week masses on the computer but also comforting and interesting to see masses from around the world; a reminder that we are all celebrating and all inside. 




Sunday is Easter, what will you be doing? I know that many of us will be without our family and friends but I hope that it does not mean that you won't be celebrating. Now more than ever we have to be good to ourselves, and to me that means celebrating, celebrate Easter, celebrate making it through another week at home, celebrate life. 




If you want to make sourdough bread here is a great recipe for making your own started from I am Homesteader

Story Boat

When a little girl and her younger brother are forced along with their family to flee the home they've always known, they must learn to make a new home for themselves -- wherever they are. And sometimes the smallest things -- a cup, a blanket, a lamp, a flower, a story -- can become a port of hope in a terrible storm. As the refugees travel onward toward an uncertain future, they are buoyed up by their hopes, dreams and the stories they tell -- a story that will carry them perpetually forward.




All Along You Were Blooming


A celebration of hope. An encounter with grace. A restoration of the heart. A healing of wounds. An anthem of freedom. All Along You Were Blooming is the ultimate love letter from the pen of popular Instagram poet Morgan Harper Nichols to your mind, to your heart, to your soul, and to your body.
Morgan Harper Nichols delivers a striking collection of illustrated poetry and prose, inviting you to "stumble into the sunlight" and delight in the wild and boundless grace you've been given. There is a purpose in every season, and no matter how you want to race through this day or run away from this place, rest assured that you are invited to live fully—right here, right now. Light will always find you, and even when the sun sets and you sit awaiting the dawn, know you are still blooming in the way you were meant to. And in each small moment, whether in the light or the dark, you can make room for becoming, for breathing, for stumbling, and for simply being—for there is Grace, today and every day.
