I’ve come to the conclusion that sometimes, a cupcake is just a cupcake.
That sometimes, it’s okay to just use the store-bought stuff.
to buy something you would never usually buy, just because its cute (these are mini cones by the way)
Sometimes, its okay to use something with an ingredients list you can’t pronounce.
Sometimes, its okay to use your grandma’s no-fail recipe when you run out of frosting, even if its the complete opposite of the standards
you hold you’ve held yourself to. And its okay to lick the bowl (and say ‘take that ED!” with every taste)
The rode can be bumpy
Things happen that are not in our control.
Maybe falling down can be a good thing. It lets people get to the sweet stuff easier.
because they go through their own struggles too. Nobody’s perfect
And really, no one cares how a cupcake looks on the outside, or whether it was made from whole foods, from scratch, or from a box. Its whats on the inside that counts. That the cupcake is still a cupcake, through and through.
At the end of the day though, its really not about the cupcakes at all. Life is about so much more.
Happy Birthday Jennie! I wish for you the best life can offer, the ability to learn and grow from mistakes, the knowledge to let go when things are not in your control, and all of the sprinkles in the world. I love you so much!
