My Life As A Cupcake

I cannot believe how much life has changed in the past 4 months.  I would say in the past year.. but it has completely evolved just in 4 months!

I'm finally just happy with being Amanda ♥.  And I can say that 110% right now, with no denial.  Some good advice I received a few months ago was that I need to find happiness within me..before I could invite anyone new into my life.  It's true.

I am living in a new two story home, on my own. But I want to fill it with people, love..and well, obviously (duh) cupcakes & glitter.  I call it the Cupcake Mansion.

I kept wandering and wishing for a place I could call my home.  And this lady who calls herself my fairy godmother came along and granted this wish for me (of course after a lot of hard work on my end..and more hard work to come to make this place come alive).

So one step at a time. I have just polished myself up, I feel new, and I think I feel like my inner sparkle might be glowing again. (I'm not it?!)

  Now I have found my home, and I truly have become whole now that I have found my inner superhero-Amanda Cupcake ♥.

I am welcoming my next wish. And I'll reveal that when it comes true.

But for of my new home.  Pre-glitterized (there is so much Amandanization to do to this place)!

My log cabin-esque office ♥ (needs a little bit of be-dazzling!)
My dream kitchen ♥ 9 racks of convection ovens!
A view for my workspace.♥ And a gigantic Hobart mixer.
My classroom where I will teach people how to glitterize their cupcakes ♥
I even have a mini "fort" upstairs. I can't wait to deck this place out. (anyone who knows me knows that I am a big kid!)
I ♥ my personal kitchen's ceiling.
♥ the vintage print on the shiny glossy floors in my upstairs apartment.  My toenail polish matches nicely.
There's even a Statue Of Liberty outside my house!
The outside of the house
Lots of natural light and tiffany blue walls
Some of the first cupcakes I made here ♥ Tree Cupcakes!
I'm happy here.  And I could quite possibly grow old here. Even if my goal is to have a few other cupcake estates in a few more locations :) This is a really really special place.
