Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting...


The last 24 hours have been hard for me. I found out yesterday that I was losing my job - being laid off due to the awful economic situation that we're battling nationwide. It was a complete shock, of know fault of my own, and absolutely devastating.

I haven't been able to put much into words yet - although I plan to do so on my personal blog in the next couple of days. I do know that I am incredibly thankful for our friends and family near and far who have rallied around us to provide comfort and support during this tough time.

It's hard to know what to do first, or at all. But today when everything was still so fresh I figured - "hell, if cupcakes can't make a girl at least a little bit happier - what can?" so I went over to Heather's and we whipped up a batch of chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting.

Everyone agrees they're the best we've made so far. Probably because so much heart went into them.

Oh Joanne,

I'm so sorry to hear that you are being laid off- I can tell how much you loved your job by the way you've blogged about it.

Although it's hard right now- I'm am certain that this means something better is going to come your way. Sometimes it's difficult to understand why things happen the way they do until you can look back on the situation and realize that everything turned out for the best.

Oh and your cupcakes look AMAZING!!! I'm going to go see if I have any chocolate in the house- YUM.

My company also went through restructing (that's what the career consuling said to call it instead of being laid-off)
I've been spending some more time with my girls but now on the hunt.
Good luck and I wish I had one of those cupcakes right now.
