So, I'm not Catholic. I've been many times on Easter and Christmas but I've never adhered to the traditions such as Mardi Gras and Lent. That all changes this year : ).
This year I've decided to observe the tradition of Lent and give up all kinds of candy, chocolate, and cookies. I realize that 40 days is a long time, and those 40 days do include my birthday.... but I think I can do it! I'm going to put forth my best effort.
And in honor of the excess before the cutting off:
My favorite kinds of cookies. I made 24 and I've already eaten 10 of them. It's much easier to give something up when I feel sick just thinking about it : ). So here's to sugar, my impossible sweet tooth (that began early btw), and giving it all up for self improvement!
