I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

The other day my friend gave me some great news. She said that a cupcakery had moved in down the street from me... yeah... DOWN THE STREET! I love cupcakeries and always look for them when we are traveling. Literally, this one is about a mile and a half away. Which is great... and a big problem. I am going to have to show some serious restraint. I pass it everyday when I go to the gym and Danny passes it everyday when he goes to work. So I will rationalize that I just worked out and deserve a cupcake or if I had a long day and need a break I could have Danny pick some up on his way home. See why I'm going to struggle! I bought these today, on my way home from picking up Jackson from school (it was closed on my way home from the gym). And it was only a mile and a half out of my way  :) 
All cupcakeries do things a little different, but what I love about these is the light and fluffy frosting. When I went in there, the lady was telling me about how their cupcakes are better than Sprinkles and others and I just thought... I will be the judge of that. Little does she know of my well versed cupcake palette. These do measure up pretty well. They are delicious. I will definitely be going back... regularly.
