A Christmas Cupcake, Coffee, and a Chat


Friends are like sprinkles on the cupcake of life. ~Author unknown

Yesterday, I met my sweet friend Bonnie for a Christmas cupcake, coffee, and a chat. We met at my favorite little bakery.

I just had to take a photograph of this darling gingerbread man/reindeer.  You can see Bonnie in the background.



Once inside, it was difficult to decide which cupcake to choose.


I chose this double chocolate reindeer cupcake. Too cute!  The ears were pretzels and the muzzle/nose was buttercream and a candy.  I ate everything but the cupcake paper and the googley eyes.

So delicious!  And I was very polite and used a fork to eat it!

Bonnie chose a chicken salad croissant sandwich.  I've had one before and they are yummy.

We sat and ate and talked for over 2 hours. I will miss Bonnie when we move.  But hopefully our new house will be big enough to have a guest room!


I saw this really sweet banner for sale at the bakery. I almost bought it.  Isn't it sweet?  I may go back and buy it after all.

Update:

Not too much to tell really.  We've had two interviews with people that want to adopt Lilah Rose.  One went especially well but then the woman said Lilah had too much energy.  Well, she is still a puppy!

I have two more interviews lined up for Friday and Saturday.  One is an older woman who is home most of the time. One is a family with children + 2 dogs but both parents work so I think Lilah would be in a crate a lot.

Please continue to pray for a good home for her.  Thank you. xo

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
