Good morning and a warm, sunny, happy Friday, Happy Spring to you! Sadly, it is going to be rainy and cold here but luckily, no more snow. How about your neck of the woods?
As Spring has come and gone here I am going to focus on other great things this week.

Do you know how certain foods or smells take you back to special times in your life? Well, bear claw pastries are one of those foods that hold special memories for me. They are the pastries my mom use to get for my siblings and I each weekend to eat while watching cartoons. And the reward after a 5 mile walk(one way) on the Florida beaches, on Saturday mornings with my husband; bear claw for me and a cinnamon roll for him from our favorite bakery, which sadly it is now an art gallery.
Since moving from Florida I have been unable to find a good bear claw so I have been in search of a recipe to try and replicate my own, this week I discovered Bear Claws from Sprinkles Bakes. The recipe looks fairly easy and I can’t wait to try it.

Last week we lost an icon in architecture, Michael Graves, although many will know him only for his toaster. This is a beautiful tribute to Michael Graves by CBS Sunday Morning is one of my favorite finds this week.
Have you heard of Lizzie Velasquez? I first heard of her while watching a TED talks, she suffers from a rare disease that do not allow her to accumulate any body fat, among other things. Sadly, she was labeled and bullied both online and off and called “the world’s ugliest woman.” I am looking forward to seeing her new documentary because she is an incredible and inspiring woman!
I am also looking forward to seeing Helen Miriam in The Woman In Gold, are there any movies that you have on your “must see” list?
What did you find that was interesting, informative or fun this week out in the world? I am always interested in new recipes, books, movies and adventures and love your suggestions.
Have a safe and wonderful weekend.
