Merry Christmas Y'all

Merry Christmas Y'all! 

Can you feel it? It's almost Christmas!! I love so many things about Christmas- the lights, music, parties, FOOD- but most importantly I love being with friends and family. Everyone seems to pause for a bit and think about life and what is most important. However, the Christmas season can also bring heartache- for those we've lost, miss and can't bring back. Some are going through a hard time and can't provide presents and others just feel empty. I hope you all take a moment to be thankful for your blessings and to say prayers for those in pain. Remember, even though some might not be with us physically, they certainly ARE with us. God is with us. 

My siblings recently sent me a cookie bouquet-because they are awesome! It got me thinking, I can do that with cupcakes! I hope you all enjoy my first cupcake bouquet. There will be more to come! 

Merry Christmas Y'all!

The Leah!

Happy December y'all! I can't believe it's December and Christmas is coming up. If you know me, you know that this is by far my favorite time of the year. I even start listening to Christmas music mid October. For 3.5 years at work I sat next to my dear friend Leah. Leah is one of my favorites- I just adore her. Leah let me listen to Christmas music in October and would continue to let me play it until Christmas. One of our favorites is Hanson Christmas, "Snowed In"- seriously, the best. About a year ago my sweet work wife moved to Minnesota to be closer to family. Lucky them! Before she left I made her tell me what she wanted her cupcake to be and she said something looking like snow or snowflakes...really fitting since she is now in Minnesota (brrr) and she joined in with me being obsessed with Christmas. Leah- this one is for you girl. Merry Christmas!
