How does every week feel like it flies by and also like an eternity to complete.  Same thing with this summer.  June seems like it was ages ago, and yet somehow it’s already mid August? Time, you are a tricky bitch.  At least my friends and I went to the beach this past weekend for the first time together in TWO YEARS once we realized that summer was coming to a close. In New York, getting to any beach is an adventure in itself, so by the time you pick a spot to lie in the sand, you are more than ready to relax.  I think we all needed a beach day. I think we all deserved a beach day.

The holidays are really here! I’m incredibly behind on presents, I’m working more hours in a day than anyone should, my apartment is a mess and there are only lights as of right now on our tree, yes it is truly the holiday season.  I think it’s funny how people get so excited about this time of year and yet it can be the most stressful time there is! How is that fun? I’ve done my best recently to just go with the flow, and try to enjoy any time I have with friends and loved ones as much as possible. This time of year SHOULD be fun and a little magical.  It’s the time of year for snuggling up and watching Christmas movies, drinking mulled wine……..just drinking really. And I can’t help but want to bake all the time, new things, old things, all the chocolate bark I can make. And when I headed to my friend’s Christmas party, the first of the season, I had to bake something to bring! So I made these egg nog cupcakes.  But I have to say I thought they were…..ok. So I had to make them again, just for myself, and make them better.  In the second batch they were exactly how I wanted them! Full of egg nog flavor, like you can SMELL it when you get near them. You can smell it as soon as you take them out of the oven. The cinnamon frosting is the perfect pairing.  I was thinking of boozing them up, but no alcohol actually sounded complementary or appealing to me in this cupcake.  So I’m glad I left well enough alone, because when I tried one myself, I knew second time was a charm.
