Cupcakes Fix Everything
Everyone at my house had a shitty day today, and clear across the board it was stress, exhaustion, and high emotion. All three of us ladies shed a tear at one point or another, and so you know what we did? We did what any red-blooded woman would do. We made cupcakes.
Now, they weren't prize-winning. They lacked form and finesse, they were right out of a box, and they kind of stuck in the muffin tins. But they were chocolate, people, and isn't that all that matters at the end of the day?
When the cupcakes reached the frosting coolness, we piled on the couch and watched Juno while it began to storm outside, and you know what? I don't care that I have a bathtub sitting in my living room, a toilet in my bedroom, and a sink in my hallway. I don't care that one entire wall of my bedroom and half of my ceiling has been ripped down. I don't care that my new apartment is an utter shambles, and I will have to use half of it as storage until it's habitable again, because none of that really matters. I am loved, and I have amazing family, and this summer is full of possibility. And when things start to get crazy, there's always Duncan Hines.
o.k. I do care a little that my toilet is in my bedroom. C'mon already people!!!
