Food I Ate Fridays - Midnite Confectioners Cupcakery

My little brother’s girlfriend, Nikki has been raving about this place.  I love cupcakes, so it felt like a natural choice for her to take me there while I was home!  Sometimes people hype up places and when you finally get there you do not understand what all the fuss was about, but that was NOT the case with this place.  It lived up the hype and then some!  The flavor combinations were spot on, the presentation was fantastic, and the cupcakes were absolutely delicious.

We tried 1) Black Velvet, 2) Gingerbread, 3) Brownie Sundae, and 4) Butter Pecan – They were moist and dense.  They melted in your mouth and made every calorie worth it.  Honestly, it was the best cupcake I have ever eaten!  I haven’t stopped thinking about it, and it has been a month.

The place was quaint with a small counter with high top chairs you can sit at to eat.  The black and silver décor was subtle and really showcased the cupcakes as all that got attention in the entire place.  The smells in the bakery were to die for - soft and homey.  Everything was so fresh, and I loved that there was no bakery case of pre-made cupcakes.  They are made to order.  What a wonderful business model.  High quality products with family friendly service.

I wish I could afford to cater cupcakes from them for my wedding!  Maybe I'll splurge! You should check them out, and if you are ever in the Baltimore area, head over and try one. 

You will not regret it :)

In the Nursery: Whole Hearted Parenting Manifesto

I recently finished a book by Brene Brown titled, DaringGreatly
It really moved me, and I am definitely still processing it.
At the beginning of the book I wasn’t resonating deeply with the topic of vulnerability, as most people will tell you I am an “open book”.  I will answer most questions without holding back and love to deep dive into good conversation.  However, what I came to realize through her many examples is that we all wrestle with vulnerability, guilt and shame throughout this book even if is more momentary than constant.  I gleaned SO MUCH from this book that I did not anticipate, and I thought I would share this Parenting Manifesto that she put right at the end of the book.  I am printing it and framing it for our nursery, as I think it communicates some deep parts of my heart cry for parenting my kiddos well.

I hope this resonates with someone else as much as it did with me.  
I needed these words to remind me that parenting is not a checklist, it is a lifestyle.  …

A Penny For Your Thoughts - On Insecurity and Looking Back

I have felt compelled to write about something lately, and been shying away from it, which is not my typical style.  As I look back over my life, I have recently realized that I finally feel like "enough".  I know my worth is in the Lord and I know I am beautiful and worth people's time, but that has not always been my story.  Far too often from the ages of 12 to 30, I defined my worth by whether someone was interested in dating me or not and after I got married, whether people "liked me" and wanted to be my friend or to hire me.  Was I pretty enough?  Interesting enough? Worth someone's time?  Talented enough?  Smart enough? etc...
Recently, as pictures pop up in my Timehop (an app that shows pictures taken the same day as far back as it can reach through social media and the camera roll on my phone), I distinctly remember feeling like I was either fat or unattractive in most pictures.  I remember being embarrassed of my pants size.  I remember wearing to…

At the Library - May through September 2019 Reading

We had another baby in May (SO much more on that later) and blogging has obviously taken a back seat, but I am still reading for pleasure and have managed, in my sons first four months of life, to complete these 8 books!  Y'all, I remember a time when even completing 2 books a year would have sincerely sounded daunting, much less with a newborn.  If you want to read more, you can find the time!  Take stock of your days and see where you are wasting hours.  For some of these, I listened to the audio book while I was pumping or watering the garden.  
Rather than give you an individual breakdown of each of these books, I just want to report I found them all incredibly enjoyable.  A total cross section of a food memoir to a psychology deep dive to nature centric novels, I would recommend them all in different capacities.
