My brain follows a semi-predictable pattern every spring. 

YEAY!!!!!!!!!! I haven't seen the sun in 62 years! It's finally spring again! I love you Spring! I love you! I'm going to take you home and squish you and love you forev----

What's happening? Why is it SO COLD?! Where are you Spring?! WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME?!!!

Well, well, well Winter. We meet again.

I hate you Winter. Don't touch me.  

Ohhh!!! Is that Spring?! I think it's Spring!!! Spring! Hey! Spring! Over here!! It's me! It's - Oh - It's still you Winter. That wasn't funny.



Spring! Winter! Spring!Winter!Spring!Winter! It's Springter!


Oh hey there Sun. Let's hang out.

And then I do eleventy-twelve hours worth of yardwork in a three day period. 

Frankly, Spring is emotionally exhausting. At least I have these cookies to keep me company. Want to make some?

How to make tropical luau flower decorated sugar cookies: 

Step 1. 

With medium consistency blue icing and a #3 tip, outline heart shape petals on the cookie. Immediately fill in each heart shape, being careful not to overfill the center. Let dry for an hour.

Step 2. 

Grab some medium consistency white icing and a #3 tip. Pipe heart shaped petals that go between the blue petals. Immediately fill in each shape with the same icing. Let dry overnight, or for at least 6 hours.

Step 3.

Pipe a dot of red icing in the center of the flower. You can be done right here and now, or you can go ahead and add some happy and completely unnecessary details by drawing dashed stitching lines around the edges of each blue petal.
