Today my youngest daughter baked a cake from a box and filled the batter with blue and red sprinkles. She then flavored icing with strawberry flavoring. We’ll keep it chilled in the refrigerator and then decorate it with blueberries for a festive 4th of July dessert.
The important point: the simple cake is for that one family we finally invited over after years of saying we would.
We’ll throw kabobs on the grill, whip up some homemade Mac-n-cheese, put out a salad or deviled eggs, maybe a bowl of salty chips. . .
It’s neither exhausting nor fancy. It’s just simple. If you’re thinking of that one neighbor you always said you’d invite over, maybe you’ll find that, like for me, it’s finally time to reach out.
Living with flair means you bake a cake and invite someone. Yeah!
