I Heart February

January is finally over. Yippy! Winter is one month closer to being finished. And while February is still cold and wintery, starting with today, at least it's shorter. Right?! And honestly there is something warm and cozy and velvety and rich and chocolatey about it. Whether you subscribe to the notion of Valentine's Day or not. Maybe it's just the notion of a little deep dark indulgence to get you through to spring. And in our case the birthday of our two valentines is just more fun to celebrate.
I find I am torn between aspirations of throwing a slightly Martha-type party with all the trimmings. And then I think of a house full of two year olds, and I reconsider. As I've realized before I am not Martha and maybe a quiet little family celebration is in order. Either way, something in me can't resist researching the perfect cupcake...

The perfect cupcake... The 'Holy Grail' of cupcakes... As yojo suggests it is Crave. I bow in the general direction of Crave. February is a great month! It means that spring is right around the corner.


The Bug and the Bee will be three... yipee... (Damn I'm good)

I have yet to crave a cupcake as well. I heard they are great. Last year one of the moms boght cupcakes from there for the whole kindergarten class when it was her kid's birthday. To bad i didn't have a kid in kindergarten last year. Jenthemom got to take home the left overs and she didn't save any for her hubby. Ooops I outed her. Well she didn't share with me either.
