Good Morning Cupcake Cottage!

Good Morning little shops!

When I arrive at the shop to bake it is always dark. This time of the year it's a real treat to drive in and see all the wonderful Christmas lights and decorations in shop windows.
I love our twinkle lights, and I especially love the pink Christmas tree in Weddings on the Boulevard window. Waking up is a little easier with such festive December greetings! =)

Hey Cupcake, Thanks!

Fort Worth Weekly Holiday Guide 2009 & Fort Worth Child December 2009

We are always incredibly surprised and grateful when unexpected 'shout-outs' come our way. Last week, while waiting for a burger at a neighboring hamburger spot, I saw the Fort Worth Weekly Holiday Guide 2009 and took a peek. Page 10 featured Holiday Hosting and there we topped Cupcake Cottage cupcakes and all! Very cool.

Last month, before the Thanksgiving rush, I received an email from Fort Worth Child letting me know that we had been selected as Best place for Cupcakes! We were asked to keep mum until the December issue was released. That is never an easy promise to keep, but we did.
We certainly appreciate such Sweet Mentions and we know that it's all due to YOU! We appreciate our amazing customers for embracing our sweet treats and letting others know about us. =)

December Magic!

December is here again! This month can mean so many things to different people. Considering the economic valley that our country is experiencing, it is likely to be month sprinkled with worry and stress for many. Let's face it, even when we are experiencing economic peaks December can still be a bit overwhelming.

Whatever your tradition...whatever your joy...whatever your stress... December is a great time to simply step back and remember the precious gift of life!

When I taught second grade I began each morning with clear objectives for myself and my students. I verbally expressed those objectives as well as post them on the chalkboard so we could reference our goals during the day. I always ended that daily opening with "Let's make it a great day!" Does that mean all went well each and every day? Absolutely not! However, I am a firm believer that there is one thing we can truly control in this life and that is how we react to everything around us.

If your world is falling apart, I recommend prayer and tears. If your world is going splendidly I recommend the same.

No matter the matter "Let's make it a great December!" =)
