No cupcakes.

You know that bloggers lives aren't exactly real, right?
If it seems picture perfect on the blog, I promise you there's something different going on behind the scenes.
Certainly some people have a happy and cheerful outlook on life. And I love that!
I try to be one of those. And generally I am.
But it's not always rainbows and cupcakes around here.
And if there's anything I am, it's real. Honest. Blunt. (to a fault)

For the past few weeks, every waking moment has been spent preparing for a big show we did over the weekend.
There were nights with 3 hours of sleep, only to wake up at 4am and start another new day.

My house looks like a tornado hit. It's not good.

Last night my dinner was Buffalo Wing Doritos and a piece of Dove dark Chocolate.

There's currently a 4 year old screaming as if he's being tortured in the room next to me. Hysteria.

I'm exhausted. Drinking a bucket of coffee. Already considering another one when this one is empty.

But despite it all, I'm so grateful.

There is beauty all around.





No it's not perfect. But it's good.
And I could sure use a cupcake right about now.

I'm glad to know I'm not alone in feeling crazy right now...and yes, a cupcake sounds delightful. Maybe when I can catch my breath, I'll make one...better just buy one instead!! ;)

Welcome to the real world of many of us I'm sure, you are sooo not alone. I'm lucky if my house gets a deep clean once a month these days! I've just decided that the dust will always be there so I live more freely these days! Mmmm.....cupcakes yummy!

I think we are all safe to agree that by now we all KNOW that life aint as pretty as a post

and THANK GOD for our ugly, messy, real, blunt moments...

they bring us closer to each other
and to the cross
exactly where we all belong

and I have 3 white cake unfrosted cupcakes over here...if you want to make the drive, and bring some butter and sugar and milk for butter cream , I am happy to share :-)

or we can hop a flight to London and Ruth can take us out for cake

I l.o.v.e visiting your blog....it is medicine for my soul. I once read "perfect is incompatible with life", perfect is for heaven, right now, here, it is enough to say "it's good" Bless you for sharing your life.
