Baked French toast cups😋

“My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to.

Your dreams stay big and your worries stay small.

You never have to carry more than you can hold.

And while you’re out there, getting where you are getting to, I hope you know that somebody loves you and wants the same things for you too.”

I love this recipe for its simplicity with ingredients that are always available in your pantry. You can’t go wrong with this. A little twist on a French toast recipe really dresses things up.. which really sums up life for me.. make every day things as exciting as you can.. rediscover yourself.. rediscover life itself !

Believe you can be more than you can be.. celebrate yourself.. ❤️
