Today I spent some time playing with green sprinkles since St. Paddy’s Day is right around the corner.

There was also some of my favorite melted chocolate involved.

The day was off to a good start for me.

It was also off to a good start for Skylar because she got new Jambu shoes yesterday.

They’re perfect for warmer weather, and for San Digeo weather in general, because her feet can breathe but there’s still a closed toe and an eco-friendly recycled rubber sole.

The best part is that I don’t hear, “Mom, my shoes came untied” because there are no laces. Love that.

Jambu makes adult shoes and also has a vegan shoe line if that’s important to you and their styles are cute.

Skylar’s mail-order shoes were a much better success than my last attempt. However, I was visited recently by the Fairy Hobmother and received an unexpected Amazon gift card so I can’t complain.

I also can’t complain because I am loving the longer days. That extra hour is just glorious.

Time to munch on an “Egg”-in-a-Nest Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites (No-Bake, Vegan, Gluten Free) while I figure out what I’m making for dinner.

Have you gotten any new shoes lately?

Unfortunately, no, I haven’t.

I tried but that wasn’t successful and so I have been wearing my Rainbow Sandals (year-round) and these Nike’s pretty much exclusively. At least I’m comfy.

Does the extra hour of sunlight in the evenings make a difference to you?

Oh it makes me so happy! I love everything about it from helping with dinnertime food photography to feeling overall productive and being able to fit more in the day to just being happier in general because it means spring is in the air.

I’d much rather it stay lighter later in the day than be lighter at 6am. I don’t care about light at 6am, but light at 6pm? That’s fabulous.
