I miss home. I love living in Seattle and am definitely not as homesick as I was a year and a half ago, but I will always miss home.
My home is where my mom is, my brother is, my in-laws are, and where my dad is buried. Arizona will never stop being my home, and I can't help but reminisce about it every chance I get.
They (who they? Jesus, yes) say that what someone projects in their attitude, speech, dreams, drawings, actions, or even words are a projection of whats on the heart. When I look at this cake, I definitely wasn't planning on it looking the way it is captured in the pictures. In fact, I had a whole different plan with the design for this cake. But, when I was finished with it, I took a step back and the first thing that came to my mind was Arizona sunsets and the mountains that become a mere silhouette in front of such ethereal lighting. It really warmed my heart.
An Arizona sunset is one of the most memorable recollections I have of Arizona because I grew up witnessing the magnificence of it my entire life. There's something very magical and jaw dropping about it. No picture could ever do one justice in my opinion. You just have to go and see one for yourself!
While Seattle has its numerous charms, my heart will always belong in Arizona~
