It's been a long week and I'm still in catch-up mode. Two of my friends shared cookie inserts with me this week. From my favorite online retailer, Blonde Birdie, an actual fortune:
"Good news from afar may bring you a welcome visitor."
And from the Engrish Funny website, via Mr. Fabulous:
"Our first love and last love is...Self-love."
I got to spend a few hours with my niece this past week when she came to town for brunch and some Austin-style vintage shopping, and she gave me this bookmark:
Isn't it gorgeous? (It's okay to be jealous.)
It's already been put to good use over the weekend, marking the cookbook pages for Chicago deep dish pizza- a Saturday night extravaganza that turned out well, if I do say so myself.
(fortunecookiejunkie's first attempt at pizza-making, with help from a native Chicagoan)
And finally, my own cookie insert (bottom) from lunch on Friday, accompanied by that of my neighbor and friend Hester (top):
Hester's not-a-fortune: "Luck helps those who help themselves."
My not-a-fortune: "You have a heart of gold."
May this coming week be better than the last.
