I can't believe the school year has already begun. Where did our summer go? Here in the Seattle area, we barely had one. I am holding out hope for a beautiful fall. I can already smell that wonderful autumnal scent that fills the air this time of year, all of those spicy-earthy scents...so delicious. Speaking of delicious(like that segue;-), after Jake and Liv's first day of school was over, I took them down to our favorite little cupcake shop. It's not pretentious or super fancy, but they sure do have delicious cupcakes. This is the second year in a row that we have headed down to the cupcake shop to celebrate the first day of school. I think we will make it a tradition. Who doesn't love a tradition that includes cupcakes?(~.~) Oh, and I just found out about this show on the Food Network. I can't wait to check it out! Seriously, is there anything more fun than cupcakes? Well, maybe watching my kids enjoying the cupcakes is a little more fun, but only a little.;-)
One of these days, very soon, I hope to make it into one of the Trophy Cupcake shops here in the Seattle area. It looks simply divine!

After our stop for cupcakes and milk, we passed by the Comic Hut shop. They always have such great window murals. Jake decided to strike his best superhero pose.
On to some other delightful things. I have just recently started digital scrapbooking and oh my goodness!!! I am already completely addicted. I have always wanted to give it a try, but was so intimidated by the word digital. I just downloaded my first kits from Kitschy Digitals, by the amazing Danielle Thompson, and a few from Pugly Pixel's blog. I just recently found her blog and have fallen completely in love. It is full of beautiful photography, ideas, tips and wonderful tutorials, plus she is crazy generous when it comes to designing and putting together the cutest freebies. I used both Kitschy Digitals and Pugly Pixel's digital kits to redesign my blog header. Needless to say, I think I have found yet another addiction to add to the many I already suffer from.
Here is one of Pugly Pixel's latest freebies. Are these not the cutest!?!!!
I have just recently started blogging again after quite a long time away. I simply refuse to give up on this little blog. I certainly hope now that both of the kids are at school all day, I can find a little more time for blogging. Only time will tell. My days seem to fill up and fly by way to fast!
