Forty days without dessert
For as long as I can remember, I've given up sweets for Lent. Well, except when I was pregnant. With Nico, I gave up celebrities and with Leo, I gave up Lent. I've been on a bit of sugar binge lately and have actually been looking forward to a break. But when I looked at my calendar yesterday and it said that Ash Wednesday was this week, I panicked. I didn't feel prepared. Good thing I ran the date by Daniel and he assured me that it doesn't start until next week.
Now I have time to dig into those six chocolate bars I bought a few weeks ago, make these thin mints and have a slice of my favorite pie. Some say you can take a break from Lent on Sundays. I've never gone this route—and I'm not even religious—but, maybe this year I should. Forty days without dessert, even when you've been going overboard all year, is kind of crazy.
