Baking Cupcakes

Life is way to short to live with regret. I mean I really can not stand the "grass is always greener" outlook some people have out there in our world. Maybe that is part of the reason I am getting more and more excited about my new life. I have so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to. And I have people very close to me that are going through their own turmoil that really seems much much harder than my own.

To look forward to: I baked cupcakes for a co-workers baby shower at work tomorrow (like mother like daughter) and I got these awesome cupcake papers right at Fred Meyer (the local grocery store). And you won't believe this! They were on the baking isle and are made by Reynolds!!! They cost a $1.67 and look so professional. I know my cupcakes will shine and the mommy to be will feel very loved at how pretty they are;)

As for my friend going through something much harder:( She lost her husband about 3 months ago to a long battle with cancer. She is an inspiration to me everyday. And she is constantly showing me how to fully appreciate every second we have on this earth. How to really milk every last drop out of each second of the day.

I am happy at the amount of green my grass has. I am satisfied with my life as it is at this moment. And I live with absolutely no regret about the decisions I have made in my previous life, because they made me who I am today...which is a much stronger, better person.

  1. Love those cupcake papers! Has your mom seen them?
    You keep on looking forward. It's good for the heart and soul. Being positive helps you grow and truly enjoy life. Life is good! Some hiccups along the way are part of life.
    When are you getting that cute little "bug"?

  4. Hi there, Lindsey! I'm new to your blog, and so far I love what I see. Can't wait to poke around some more. I've been a HUGE fan of your Mom's for quite a few years, and I'm so glad to get to meet and know a bit about one of her kiddos.

    Welcome to bloglang. Love your blog's title, BTW ;o)

  6. Hey! I've been reading your mother's blog for quiet some time and wanted to see your banner, which is lovely by the way... As I read your blog, I realized we have a lot in common... I wanted you to know that you are not alone... I am a 20 something that just recently got a divorce (April 2010) and as awful as an experience it was, I hope you can see the positives. I know it took me a while... but after a few months of re-discovering myself.. I've been happier than I have been in 10 years. I would also like to say that one thing that really got through the past year and half was Sugarland... It's been a soundtrack to my life... Settlin', These are the Days,Something More, Stand Back up, Everyday America.. They've helped me... One more thing... ' You don't drown by falling in the water, you drown by staying there.' Edwin Lewis Cole.... and 'Everyday might not be good, but there is something good in everyday.' (So maybe two things!)
    I wish you the best. It really is glorious on the other side. When all is lost, all is left to gain.

    Take it easy,
