Happy Fall to you all!
It's here and I can't believe it. Three days until we marry! The time has flown. Didn't we just get engaged? It seems like yesterday!
Well here in the sweet town of Carlsbad we are going full speed ahead. The biggest event of my life is quite a bit of work! I must admit I'm just eager for the party to start. For a quick update, I baked and frosted my wedding cake today! We chose a simple set up, a rich vanilla cake with blackberry preserve as the filling between the layers and finished it with a creamy, toasted coconut frosting. It's a tiny, darling little cake with two 6" layers. My Love is so sweet. I popped in his room and asked him to come see it. His reaction was just wonderful. He loves it and shared how excited he was that we get to have a cake we made oursleves. Isn't that just what every baker bride wants to hear from her fiance? I'd say we're a good match.
In five days we will be flying off to Kauai for our two week honeymoon! We couldn't be more excited. I did some research and created a little list of places I want to stop by while there. Kauai has a few GF and V restaurants, coffee shops and local eateries that sound intriguing and tasty. My Love has already stated that we will be visiting farmers markets, which of course made me quite excited. That sounds just perfect! Again, it's as if he knows me.....
I am still going to pack some essentials, just in case the local markets aren't as supplied as the ones here. The first essential that came to mind was my instant GF oatmeal by Glutenfreeda. It is perfect for traveling and is my go to for a filling and healthy breakfast. I also love that it has a little flax in it...just in case traveling is causing a little back up. Yes, I did just mention that. Unfortunately it's not sold every where yet. I have to pick it up at a smaller local GF bakery in Encinitas called Healthy Creations. I encourage you to try it if it is sold in your local health food store and take it as a morning treat on your travels too!
Wish me luck this wedding week! I will give you a little summary of our Kauai adventures when I return. Enjoy your last week of September!
