cupcake 1 and cupcake 2
This morning I spent some time looking in the mirror at my brand new wrinkles. There are lines around my eyes that no matter how much lotion I put on them are stubbornly here to stay. I thought I would always look 12, and although I still mostly look 12, if you look closely, my eyes give me away.
It makes me wish that my reaction at seeing the effects of age went something like: "At last! Evidence of my maturity and wisdom! I have worked so hard for these aesthetic improvements and now all that hard work is paying off!" And then, I could call friends and relatives and share my good news. Instead I wonder and scheme on how to make them go away.
All of these thoughts on aging are coming at a good time. Tomorrow I turn 31. And I made these chocolate cupcakes. And I think we will eat them for breakfast! I mean, the recipe is called "Chocolate Chip Muffins" and muffins are breakfast, right? I just might need someone to come over around 11 tomorrow to rescue me from a sugar crash...so, anyone available?
I might even share a cupcake if you come at just the right time.
See you then!
