Springtime & Dressed Up White Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake

I have been hard at work and am excited to finish up a few projects so that I can post them here soon. In the mean time, here are some other things that have made me happy this week...
I decided to try something new with my favorite white chocolate sweet potato cake. I dressed it up with melted white chocolate; I first attempted to draw leaves, but when that looked ridiculous, I settled for swirls instead. :)
(I was looking through some old photos from our old camera, and it made me really miss that thing. These iPhone pictures are just not the same. Because it's hit or miss (or just me), I have to take a ton of shots, so here is another one I tried. It looked so much more artistic from behind the camera, but now it just makes me laugh. I'm going to call it, "Chillin' with the Citrus.")
As the weather has warmed up, I've been feeling a lift in my spirits, and I remember what a gift springtime is. Just today I found a daffodil in our yard! It looks rather sad from the photo, but I think it's just our lack of yardwork; I'm actually planning to get out there and do some weeding after I write this because this is what our poor neighbors have to look at:
But the leaves are starting to grow, so maybe soon this will look like an intentionally unkempt tropical garden...
Finally, contributing to my feeling giddy about spring is the fact that Kroger had my favorite flowers for sale. I hope I can learn to reverse my plant caretaker deficiency...
I hope spring is alive where you are. And to those in and around Colorado, my thoughts go out to you; I don't wish more snow upon anyone.
