Before I tell you about the ones I liked from the last basket, I do want to give a review of TBG Blueberry Lavender Sugar Cake. One of the sample cakes threw strong in my bedroom. The blueberries never came across as too sweet or artificial. They smelled like fresh blueberries in syrup layered over a lavender and vanilla cream cake. The lavender was subtle and lightly sugared. I would repurchase it for sure. Other wax tarts I would repurchase as well include: RG Posh Pristine Peach, TBG Breaking Violet, Marie Antoinette's Boudoir, Raspberry Hearts, Sweet Green, Guava Berry Gelato, Satin Suzie Lemon & Rosemary, ST Bella's Blood, CFTKR Bamboo Type and Cashmere Forest, and LSC Patchouli Honey.

My daughters and I celebrated my sister Lindsey's birthday at the Florida Aquarium yesterday. I find watching the undulations of sea life to be quite soothing. Plus the rippling reflections of the water fascinate me.
The girls looked forward to sting ray petting the most. Scarlette, being so short limbed, had to wait for (what felt like to her) eons before she came within finger tip reach of one to stroke. We weren't in a hurry so we lingered quite a while at the sting ray touch tank.
The jelly fish were my personal favorite.
The aquarium butts right up to Tampa Bay and where Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruise lines arrive and depart. It was cool to the let the girls see the huge ships up close.
We closed out our celebrations over some amazing food at Datz: funnel cake French fries, pankcakes with strawberries and cream, jalapeno and bacon mac bites, sweet and salty house made ships and chair tea lattes with smoked Gouda and bacon burgers. As fantastic as the nosh was, the company was even better. I treasure my friendships with my sisters and count myself thankful to be a part of their lives.
Spring Break has officially started. We are not really traveling anywhere but we do have some fun things planned. Savanna has a friend staying over tonight and a hang out Wednesday where a friend will be coming over, that same day Scarlette is getting picked up by her best friend's mom and her friend too, of course, for an outing. I want to fit in a beach day somewhere. Saturday I plan on driving up to Jacksonville with my friend, Tricia, and my sister, Darby, to meet one of my favorite authors, Maggie Stiefvater, at a book festival.
Are you Spring Breaking it? What are you melting? Do you enjoy aquariums? Tell me how you are doing.
