Judy @ petit4chocolatier with her post: Chocolate Cupcakes with Soft Blue Butter-Cream Icing with Little Chocolate Sprinkles.  She had me at her post title.  And then she stole my stomach with wave upon wave of delectable cupcake photos.  I wanted to come through the screen to get at these.  Pan through Judy’s other posts.  Amazing.

Ian Lawton @ Soulseeds with his post Waking Up to Wonder: “How long does it take you to wake up in the morning? I’m not talking about opening your eyes.

Finally, we’re going to close with a heartwarming story about sportsmanship and humanity.  It exists!

faith in humanity

Have a great Hump Day…
