I can eat cookies and cookies all day long, and when they look THIS cute and pretty, it’s¬†not hard ūüėĬ† With all my exploration of the city and yummy food stories, I have truly made my mom and brother obsessed with going downtown with me and getting delicious goodies from Kensington’s My Market Bakery among many other places!¬† With the long Easter weekend ahead of us, we picked up fresh bread and buns (my brother picked out some potato and rosemary sour dough!), sweet flaky dessert¬†pastry squares (apricot almond, apple cinnamon, and raspberry coconut omg!), and a special Easter shortbread cookie just for me!¬† Rows upon rows of shortbread cookies with oodles of colourful sprinkles, frosting, and sprinkled sugar¬†in adorable egg, bunny, and baby chick shapes just waiting to be taken home and enjoyed by cookie monsters like me.¬†

I haven’t always celebrated Easter on a regular annual basis, but occasions like these¬†remind me of the time my aunt gave me a¬†little painted egg bunny toy for Easter a few years ago and jokingly said to my mum, “of course¬†YOU don’t get one, they’re for the little ones!”¬† Peering into display cases and picking out sprinkled cookies remind me how young at heart I am and will most likely¬†always be.¬† It reminds me that it’s the simple things in life that bring the most joy and all it takes is a little¬†splash of colour and cuteness to make make happy.¬† Mornings like these just strolling through one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto mean the most to me and that cookie made me one very¬†giddy girl today.¬† I picked out the cookie with the pink and white and lavender sprinkles with the¬†frosted candy bunny.¬† And yes, I ate it already.¬† Just the beginning of a weekend of Easter and good eats goodness ūüėÄ
