I moved to this small town 4 years ago to marry my awesome husband. We lived in separate states and when the conversation came up about which one of us was going to move so we could be together, the decision came easy for me. I had lived in Detroit all my life and I wanted to know what it was like to relocate, to start over, to learn new territory, and I wanted to experience the personal growth that goes along with a major transition like that. I also wanted to make new friends. I’ve never been shy and I love meeting new people. Well, the transition was MUCH harder than I ever could have anticipated. I’ve often felt very isolated since the big move and like I said, it just hasn’t been what I thought it would be, at times. I still really miss my friends back home. They are my chosen family, my rocks and they just “get” me and I LOVE and treasure them. You know who you are!!
However, I certainly have met some tremendous people here, some incredible people, and I adore all of them: women from mom’s groups, neighbors, and women from our church. But there are two women in particular that have truly touched my life, each in their own special way, and they also just “get” me. So I wanted to love on them and since Mother’s Day was this past weekend, I invited them over for a Mother’s Day appreciation brunch of sorts and they brought their beautiful children over for a play date this morning.
I put together a light brunch of an assortment of mini quiches, fresh fruit, orange juice and CUPCAKES!! My awesome sister-in-law makes delicious cupcakes. She’s been perfecting cupcake recipes for quite some time now and is gathering quite the following of willing taste testers. I asked her to bring two of her famous flavors: Chocolate Espresso and Key Lime Pie. The chocolate espresso is an adult version of a Hostess cupcake with a delectable espresso filling, a chocolate cupcake and chocolate ganache on top. TO DIE FOR! Her key lime pie cupcake is a yellow cupcake with coconut cream cheese frosting, lime zest and sprinkled with graham crackers. Holy cow! It’s very difficult to eat just one. She is super talented and all of her flavors are fabulous. She’s really got a good thing going. Just take a look these babies:
And she was even nice enough to bring “to go” boxes for each friend:
So thank you, Kim. They were wonderful and you should be very proud of yourself!! And please note readers, she caters, so let me know if you’d like her contact information. You won’t be sorry!
I also sent my friends home with a bouquet of tulips each for them to enjoy. It was my way of saying thanks. Thank you, ladies, for being such a good friend, for picking me up when I’ve needed your strength, and thank you for being such wonderful examples of what a strong Christian woman looks like. I love you and I’m so grateful you’re in my life.
They even each brought a gift for me: goat milk soap (it smells divine) and a tote bag (great for the farmer’s market!):
I love how we always spoil each other!
We had a great time talking, laughing and eating while the kiddos played and ran around. As you can see from the “after” photo (sippy cup and all), I think it was a success:
Oh and I may have a big announcement in the next couple of days, so stay tuned for that. And no, I’m not pregnant!!!
