But the more I thought about it, the more I thought about the wonderful relationships I've made over the past couple of years, some of those blossoming into friendships that I'm sure will last a lifetime. This blog has brought me so much more than a place to go back and drool over past meals. Do I really want to close the door on something that has brought me so much joy? Not to mention the many culinary experiences that I would never have had the opportunity to be a part of otherwise. And well, the final answer was no, I'm not ready to close this chapter.
I may not post as often as I used to, but rest assured that when something is worth telling you about, you will know. Which brings me to the final straw on what helped in my decision-making – something that reminded me about how excited food gets me – something that brought the passion back and that could not go unshared. I screamed out loud when they were revealed – COOKIE MONSTER CUPCAKES!
Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?? Not only do I adore Cookie Monster, I can also relate to him as I have an obsession with chocolate chip cookies. Bring that all together into a cupcake and, well, let's just say I still get tears of joy when I look at these photos.
Look at him! Look at the details of his sweet blue fur, his googly eyes so giddy with excitement because of the homemade chocolate chip cookie jammed in his mouth! I know exactly how he feels because my eyes did the same thing when I ate him. Teresa, thank you so much for making my day with these! They were THE BEST!
And thank you to all the other foodies and bloggers who have become such a huge part of my life. This whole experience would not be the same without you.
