Oh, How Sweet It is!

In the last few weeks I had the chance to attend two amazing fundraising events. Both filled with amazing people, delicious sweets by bloggers and a community joined together for a common cause. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the fundraising scene but attending the Sweet Sensations event for C-CAP and the NYC Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry (in a separate post) has instilled a renewed enthusiasm to ease myself back onto the scene to help out. In the meantime, try not to drool over all the delicious treats I had the pleasure of tasting. A huge thank you to Hazel Sy of Tasty Pursuits for reaching out and bringing me back into this amazing community of giving & talented bloggers.
