INSPIRED BY THE BUSY BEE6:56 AM
Oh, and if you haven't made my honey lavender cookies yet, you must! They are amazing plain or as an ice cream sandwich.
Plus, here's a fun piece of trivia about the origin of saying 'the bees knees' (because really, what the hell does that even mean?): "There's no profound reason to relate bees and knees other than the jaunty-sounding rhyme. In the 1920s it was fashionable to use nonsense terms to denote excellence - 'the bees knees', 'the snake's hips', 'the kipper's knickers', 'the cat's pajamas/whiskers', 'the monkey's eyebrows' and so on. Of these, the bee's knees and the cat's whiskers are the only ones to have stood the test of time." Another word from the 1920's that didn't stick around? 'Pollywoppus.' Such a shame.
