There is nothing like anticipation. It can be so good sometimes. Like the kind where you wake up early just to get the day started. This is my anticipation morning. Lola's two wonderful grandmothers are coming up, so in anticipation of their arrival, I'm up with the sun to get my vanilla cakes in the oven. There is nothing like a cold, overcast day, and Sufjan Stevens Christmas music in the background. Life is good! There is nothing like a hot shower. Life is good. There is nothing like the warm scent of vanilla spilling out from the oven, filling the whole apartment with it's sweet love. There is nothing like anticipating that morning cup of English Breakfast tea and the benefits that will be reaped with every soul warming sip. Life is good. There is nothing like anticipating cooled vanilla cakes just so you can lather them in that fresh chocolate butter cream frosting you're just dieing to try! Sweet anticipation.
