Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe & Elah Tree are hosting a cooking challenge. Naturally, I’m participating. Because I have nothing else to do with my time. Ha! But seriously – I’m loving this because it gives me some inspiration and I … Continue reading
I’ve heard that when you start a business (or a blog, in this case), you should focus your energy on being really good at one thing rather than branching out and being half-good at a lot of things. I don’t much care for that philosophy. Which is why I’m not the Hunter with a business degree. I like doing what I love. And I just happen to love a lot of things.
I love baking. I always have and, hopefully, always will. So I write about that.
I love paper. I always have and actually started a card business when I was young and my mama’s friends were sweet enough to support me in my childish endeavors. So I write about that.
I love history and politics. But that’s inflammatory so I don’t write about that. At least not here. Much.
I love babies. This is actually a recent development, but I write about that too.
I love life, and Texas, and stories. So I write about that.
I love God and my family. So that permeates all of my writing.
I also love change. And surprises. And baby animals and Dr. Pepper and sunshine and books and pretty things and just about everything else.
The point being that I will probably never settle (and thus never have a profitable business, if I listen to what the suited-people tell me) and I’m okay with that. This blog is about life, and baking, and babies, and paper, and adventure, and marriage, and stories, and just about everything. And I like it. And I’m keeping it. So you just never know what might show up in a post!
Like today, when the thought struck me to share some of my favorite fonts with y’all. I have spent entirely too much time downloading fonts (which is probably why I keep killing computers, now that I think about it…) and often get asked where I get them all. So, I’m sharing just a few of my current favorites. Maybe this will become a thing. Maybe it won’t. But for now, it’s typeface tuesday!

We just got our photos from the Saurus’ cake-eating bonanza-slash-our family photos. I have not been able to stop looking at them. I had intended to keep these to myself but the little guy is too adorable not to share. … Continue reading
Secret time: I dislike my skin. Quite a bit, actually. Unfortunately, it’s not a secret anymore. And now I’m showing you pictures of me without make-up. Yeesh. No one over the age of 17 should have acne; I’m definitely over … Continue reading
Husband: What do you want to be when you grow up? Me: Martha Stewart (without the jail time), James Bond, and Indiana Jones all rolled into one, oh and the Pioneer Woman. Oh, and Beth Moore. She’s cool too. Oh, … Continue reading
I wanted to make a really cool cake for St. Patrick’s Day. Making an ombre layer cake is one of the next items in my recipe notebook. But then….I realized 1) that I probably won’t be able to get it … Continue reading
Thanks so much to everyone who wished the Saurus a “Happy Birthday” and entered our giveaway! It was so fun – congrats to the winner, Abby! Saurus’ actual birthday was Friday, the 7th, but we had a great weekend filled … Continue reading
I’ve been dying to bake something – it’s been such a long time since I’ve been in the kitchen and my little book of recipe ideas is quickly filling. Husband recently asked me to bake a cupcake that tasted like … Continue reading
(Image compliments of lindsey dutra photography. She’s phenomenal and put up with us to get the most amazing shots ever – this is our sneak preview and I can’t wait to see the rest!) Twelve months have passed and I … Continue reading
The littlest Hunter is one! I seriously can’t believe it. Everyone told me it would go fast and it has, but I didn’t realize how many developments we would have. I have a walking, babbling, toddler and I didn’t … Continue reading
