I’m baking something pretty special.  Pretty pink cupcakes.  Okay, really it’s just one very important pink cupcake.  That’s right, our family is growing!  I’m thrilled to announce that we are expecting our second child, a baby girl due in early April.

I’ve been dying to share this news for a long time, but unfortunately two pregnancy losses in the past year has made us extra cautious.   I’ll admit it wasn’t easy keeping the food blog afloat during the first trimester, when almost any new recipe sounded horrible to me and I enjoyed more fast food than I care to admit.  But now I’m well into the second trimester (almost into the third!) and back to my normal food blogging self.  I can’t even describe how much I am looking forward to meeting our little bundle of love!  (And possibly second on my list of things I’m most excited about is eating sushi again.  Oh, how I miss it.)

Our family certainly has much to be thankful for this holiday season.  I hope everyone has a blessed holiday with family and loved ones!

(By the way, I’ll be sharing the recipe for these strawberry cupcakes in the coming week or so.  The frosting is to die for!)
