A Cupcake Interlude . . .

April 24th, 2009 - filed under: Furthermore » Inspiration



To my dear, dearest readers,

Did you know that we’re coming up on three whole months since this little project went live?  And did you know that I’ve blogged every single work day since launch? Every.  Single.  One.  Not that I’m complaining, because I love this, I truly do!!  But man . . . it can be exhausting.  

Tonight I’m really tired.  And so, tonight there’s no official post.  Tonight is for relaxing with my favorite microbrew.  Tonight is for snuggling my husband and catching up on junk sitcoms. (30 Rock)  Tonight is for lemon cupcakes and chocolate + raspberry cupcakes, and also a slice of cake that’s nearly the size of my head. (all vegan, oh of course)  

I think one of the most important parts of being a hard worker, is knowing when to let yourself off the hook.  So, consider me ‘let’!




Have you been pushing yourself extra hard?  How about giving yourself your own version of a cupcake interlude? I’ll bet you deserve it!

    Those all look so amazing! Homemade? You must share your recipe. That or the name & location of your baker so I can go next time I’m in Portland. And yes you are so right everyone needs a a little cupcake interlude now and then. P.S. I love your blog!

    @ Valerie – Alas, not homemade. I can bake a killer cupcake, but my decorating skillz are certainly not that advanced! Those beauties came from what may very well be my happiest place on Earth – the Sweetpea Baking Co in the vegan mini mall, here in Portland. If you haven’t been yet, you MUST check it out next time you’re in town. It is true and unadulterated JOY (if you’re a vegan/foodie, at least). So amazing!

    And thanks! Have a great weekend!
