Keep calm and have a cupcake


Between family coming into town to celebrate Grace’s birthday, moving into a new home, trying to figure out how to furnish this new home AND stay in budget, not sleeping and preparing to go out of town, I’m feeling a little exhausted…frayed and frankly, a bit overwhelmed.

Today, my mother literally sent me to my room and told me to take a nap…I think I was being a tad crazy.

A nap was needed.

Upon waking I knew what I must do.

I had to go on a mission to buy cupcakes for Grace’s classroom birthday celebration tomorrow.

I grabbed Grace and my mom, led them to the car and took off like a mad woman to Saint Cupcake Deluxe on SE Belmont!

I wasn’t coming home until I had two dozen beautiful cupcake creations in my possession.

Well, at least I got one thing on my list done.

For the first time this week I felt a bit better, calmer.

Amongst the chaos, the boxes, the mess…I sat, devoured a chocolate cupcake and smiled.

Hope you are having a productive and happy week so far.

If not…go on a cupcake run.

xo,

Ivy

p.s. As a sweet bonus, this newly remodeled Saint Cupcake location is tied to a fabulous home decor and gift store called Noun – a treasure trove of unique vintage decor, accessories and art. Yummy treats for your tummy and your home. Love that combo.

Check out some of these lovelies…

And the charming shop…
