When I started my blog, it was for fun. It was also secretly a way of communicating with my then estranged sister. Long story short, she and I eventually reconnected, with her blog comments being a way of reaching out to me. And then she died unexpectedly.
If you read the earlier posts, they are funnier, more entertaining, even a bit offensive. However, since she was my audience (I always thought about her as I posted), I realize that those adjectives describe her! She had that influence on me and, well, I miss it.
I was recently reading my blog and thought BORING. I feel as though I was a bit of a sell-out, emulating blogs that I love, but it wasn't really me coming through.
So here you have it, folks, a confession. Here at CupcakesandCoffee, you will find random blathering. You will find ideas of things I do with the kids. You will find recipes. (I love to cook, no wait. I love to eat is more accurate.) And lastly you will find lots of crafty things, many of which I have found on the internet. Hopefully after today, you will also find more of my voice, instead of the voice I thought I had to be.
I hope to entertain, in a relaxed manner authentically, and hopefully not offend, to open doors, and have a laugh.
Love from Cat.
