fall is in the air.

4 Sep

Do you feel it? I’ve been sleeping with my window open lately and when I woke up Friday morning I noticed a change. There was a crisp breeze but it was so warm and cozy in my bed. The only way I can think to describe it is the feeling you have when you wake up in a sleeping bag in northern Minnesota and you just know that the day is going to be beautiful because of the chilly morning air.

I love it.

But I can’t help feeling anxious because even though it has barely started, I know that fall is going to be over before I know it. I can’t wait for the layers and the scarves and the boots crunching red and golden leaves.

That is all.



1 year old, today.

16 Jul

I can’t believe it. I actually can’t fucking believe it. Today is not a big day by any means, but it is a big day for me. Why? Well it’s not because it’s a Friday, although Fridays are traditionally bigger days than most. The reason is because today is the day that marks the 1st anniversary of the genesis of Yo Cupcake. !!!

In all honesty, I wanted to keep this blog for my self, my friends and family and for all of you while I was in France, but I had no idea what I was doing when I started, nor did I know if I would be able to keep it going the whole year. Yo Cupcake. sprung into being on a hot summer day in the 303 and I haven’t looked back since.

True, I haven’t always been the best at blogging. And yes, there were long periods of time when I was too “busy,” or at least too preoccupied, to be regular about posting. But despite my faults I love my baby bloggy blog and I love having readers too <3

Thanks for sticking with me throughout this first year- I hope there will be many more to come. In the meantime, let’s pull out the fancy glasses and pour the bubbly!! It’s time to celebrate!
