If it makes you happy…

Years ago I learned how to cook, by watching the Food Network while nursing my daughter. I enjoyed cooking and trying new things, and feeding my family.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then one day, I just felt overwhelmed and gave up trying new things, resorting to the standards and slapdash meals, every so often hitting on a meal that was yummy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A few months ago, I started trying to get a hold on my messy home, and my finances, and have begun to have success. Then I started working on my mental health, and revisiting things that make me happy.

So I tried making cinnamon buns for my kids. From scratch, for the first time. I should mention I do not usually do anything involving bread, or kneading, or rising, or resting… patience is not my strong suit.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But these? They turned out! A bit over cooked, a bit too brown on the top, but good enough to make my kids happy. Definitely not burnt.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Satisfyingly complete. A reminder that there is something so pleasing about making something from start to finish.

What makes you happy?
