Huckleberry scones are the epitome of the perfect morning. I know that if there are hot scones for breakfast, it's going to be a pretty awesome day. What I can't figure out is why people don't have them for breakfast every day. Why I don't have them for breakfast every day.
I want every day to be awesome. Yet I don't make these lovelies every day... something's lost in the equation.
I guess that's what determining-to-have-an-awesome-day-on-jumping-out-of-bed is for. That and Singing Oh, Happy Day at the top of your lungs.
For those days when you're fresh out of huckleberries.
