First, sorry that I've been MIA for a few days. I don't know what happened, but I've been super busy lately. Crafting has taken a bit of a back burner, but I promise to have fun things to share very soon.

As I was driving home from work yesterday, I was trying to think of what to post given the absense of all things crafty right now. And then it came to me! The Bloom Bake Shop!

In my little downtown area, a new cupcakery just opened. Given that I can't even eat cupcakes since I'm gluten-free, I don't know why I'm so excited about this place. But I am. For more than a month, there have been these elegant "coming soon" posters in the window of the shop. Starting last weekend, little bits of the window have been unpapered allowing for little peeks inside. I drive by Bloom four times a day (thanks to Dex needing to go out at lunch), and each time I see something new. It's like a little itty bitty present...and it's so pretty. And "Bloom" and baby blue? How can you not think of spring...even despite the fresh 9 inches of snow we just got. As they decorate more and start to display their cupcakes, I can't wait to drive by and see what's new. I really hope the Bloom shop makes it, if for nothing more than daily eye candy. =)

Maybe you should drop in and suggest a gluten-free cupcake. My guess is they'd actually consider it if they don't already have something planned.

Seeing new businesses gives me such hope lately. It is utterly depressing to see all the boarded up windows, for sale signs, etc. I'm not even in your town and I hope they make it too!

Hi Annemarie! It's so nice to "meet" you. I haven't actually been in your shop yet (just stalking from afar), but I do think GF cookies and brownies will lure me in! Thanks for stopping by my blog (and for finding me, in general!). Good luck with your shop!
