The Proper Way to Eat a Cupcake

This is my niece Emily. This week she schooled me in the proper way to eat a cupcake. In cupcake eating, as in life, Emily makes no apologies and enjoys everything with gusto. We could all learn from Emily.

This week has been full of pre-company frenzied cleaning, visits to the zoo, parks, various village hangouts, lots of meals eaten on porches and the lollygagging that immediately follows the departure of house guests. I hope you spent this past week taking a bite out of life too.

  9. Now that is one beautiful little girl. I bet her Mom is a knock out :o). But seriously, we had such a wonderful time. Alexandra, Charlie and especially Emily miss Emma so much. Can't wait until Thanksgiving.

  10. Just wanted to say that I love your blog and love things "cottage." I know that your move is hard, but exciting. My family and I are going through a move right now, but are in a time of waiting, and it is hard. However, I am awaiting and dreaming of when we can find and move into another cottage, and am enjoying seeing your transition and dreaming of my own.

    Blessings,
    Robin

  13. OMGosh! Emily is adorable. Tell her that some of us are WAY past being able to eat a cupcake (in any fashion) and get away with it!!! ... on second thought - don't tell her that..she will figure it out soon enough on her own!
