Day 88

My oldest and I just needed a day to ourselves. It's tough enough having a teen, who'd "maybe" rather be with her friends than spending a special day together just mom and daughter, but I think it's priceless. There will be a day we won't have as many of these types of days, it will be another chapter in our lives, but I am thankful for the time we get now.

We went to Molly's Cupcakes because we saw Cupcake Wars one night and we were so excited there was finally someone from Chicago! We had to see the shop for ourselves. It was pretty cool, at the bar were swings that were secured from the floor to the ceiling. We sat there for sure. We could watch the cupcakes come and go, and the station where you could put more sprinkles on your cupcake, and where someone was frosting them custom for each order.

We chose "Chocolate Decadence" and "The Jock" which was so yummy! My favorite photo of the day was my daughter looking down at her almost consumed cupcake, enjoying the last bite, sitting on her swing. I just love how the lighting was coming in.

We came home and watched Tangled since it just came out on DVD. My daughter's favorite. It used to be Sleeping Beauty, (as she was that for about 5 years in a row when she was little), but now Tangled has taken over her heart. If you knew her, you'd understand what a big deal that was for her to switch.
Then we were off to to the art store, picked up some more acrylics, and she is happily singing "I See the Light" from...yes, you guessed it.. Tangled. 

Good day. 

My heart is full.

What a special day for the two of you. I'm glad to see that you made the most of it, and the cupcakes look divine. My favorite part of the story is the swings for seats. What a clever idea!
