Take A Break With Rainbow Sprinkle Treats

March 23, 2014

Last Saturday afternoon as I lounged in the baby powder sand on Siesta Key Beach, avoiding my life back home, I felt for the first time in a long time, relaxed. I didn’t do anything while in Florida that I typically do at home. I didn’t do CrossFit. I didn’t bundle up in sweaters. I didn’t dread going to Wegmans for dinner groceries. I didn’t scroll through facebook to see what everyone else was doing. I didn’t tweet. I didn’t blog. I didn’t stress. And it felt incredible. Walking along the water every morning, soaking up the sun, watching the happily retired couples shop, and spending quality time with my mom and her best friend made for a perfect week. When I returned on Thursday to people asking me how my trip was I was able to wholeheartedly say, “It was amazing”. We buckled into fits of laughter everyday, we shopped in quaint boutiques, we ate ice cream three times, we bought movie theatre popcorn without even seeing a movie, we watched the sunset, we drank wine, and we conversed with strangers about their travels and lives. My fears of flying and driving over bridges even seemed to ease as I found myself calm-ish on my flights down and calm-ish-ish the dozen times I had to drive over this one daunting bridge. And although I didn’t want to leave the Florida sun I did return refreshed, with a new outlook, and a renewed passion for getting back to work. This past week I learned that sometimes you just really need a break. A break from everything. And other times you just need rainbow sprinkles. photo 1 (25) Which is why I created for you these super simple three-ingredient Sprinkle Treats. Because if you can’t have sunshine and sand, then rainbow sprinkles, marshmallows, and vanilla frosting might just be the next best thing.
