Trish Rowley

That was beautiful Kim, Happy belated Birthday to Mark looks like you had a wonderful day!! and what a beautiful tribute from Brenna very special!!! I love the photo of Mark blowing out his candles with the lipstick on his face. I'll be giving those cupcakes a go Kim they look scrumptious and I'm sure they were. Have a great day. Trish xox ;)

Hi Trish,
The cupcakes were easy to make and were, indeed, very good. If you go to Joy's blog, you will also see another recipe that I am hoping to try soon. They are cupcakes with chamomile in them. Trish, I am thinking this recipe with the chamomile would be PERFECT for a high tea! Hope you are doing well, Trish. Thank you so much for your nice visit and sweet comments. Love, Kim xoxo ((((hugs))))

Hi Kim,
Thank you for your visit to Bluebirds and Butterflies today. I soooo appreciate your nice comments. You have some delicious looking recipes on your blog, too. I am going to be visiting you over the next few days and checking them out. Have a beautiful day! xoxo Kim @ Bluebirds and Butterflies

Happy Birthday Mark! What a wonderful celebration you made for him, Kim. All the thought and love that you put into it made it so special. First off, those cupcakes look so yummy, and red velvet is one of my favorites. You mentioned that you went to a wedding and they served cupcakes - did they have a cake too? That is something to think about for Nel's wedding. I really like the wire cupcake holder, and I LOVE the china that your sister gave you. I enjoyed looking at all the pictures of Mark's birthday. Birthdays are so fun. Such a beautiful day spending it with the one you love.

Happy Birthday Mark! You have one fabulous wife but of course you already know that! Kim, wow! I can see you doing a food blog, but then I would miss all those fabulous tours that you take us on. The photography and food presentation is stunning. Joy the Baker should see this posting! Your dining room is gorgeous and I love, love, love the chandelier. Brenna is cute as a button and boy can she dance! The photo of the chef cracked me up! I wish you lived down the street from me because I think we would have a whopping good time shopping, and going on photo excursions. Good to see you back writing and posting. I know you were very busy with the wedding the past few months. You are one great photographer and blogging about food (and especially the presentation) would really wow people. I couldn't imagine your dining room any other color.

Hi Sandy,
Thank you sooooo much for the nice comments and for your visit. Thank you so much for the sweet compliments on my cupcake photos. I am going to be meeting Joy in person in Seattle in about a week or so. She is going to be at the shop of the "Cake Spy" over in Seattle doing a book tour meet and greet. I am planning on making a quiche that she has in her recipe book this week and also some scrumptious chamomile cupcakes that look delish! I think these chamomile cupcakes would be so perfect with tea. I am going to let her know in person that I have tried these recipes and am looking forward to making more, more, more! I have to control myself with the cupcakes though....I had THREE, yes three, of them! They were soooooo good! I hope you make them sometime. I also wish you lived close to me. We would be bestest friend I know! Not that we aren't good friends already! I feel we have a lot in common and, of course, we share the memories of starting our blogs together. We kind of held each other's hands so to speak. Brenna was cute in the dance she did for her "Papa." They live in Florida. Wish they were closer! That chef photo that you liked makes me smile, too, every time I see it. I am hoping to keep one or two new postings on my blog a week. My next one will feature some artwork from a museum in Washington, DC. SO glad you like the red in my dining room....it is a southern thing to have red in that room. HA! What can I say? I love my color! Anyway, my husband and I are hoping to paint my den off my kitchen and kitchen itself very, very soon. I'll post some photos. Your redo of your kitchen is amazing! Great, great job! Have a wonderful day, Sandy. Love ya xoxo Kim

Happy Birthday to Mark! I loved seeing all of the photos and the beautiful cupcakes you made! Red Velvet is MY hubby's favorite cake, too! Enjoy your afternoon sweet friend! ♥

So happy Dad had a nice birthday and you guys were able to celebrate with friends. Those kind of restraunts are Brenna's favorite. She had a great time making Papa's video and I'm sure we'll make more as I learn to use the editing program. I'll try to catch up with you guys soon, we're having a busy week. I'll be working on blog posts about the Grant Seafood Festival, The Strawberry Festival and the TICO Airshow that's coming up this weekend. It's the month of fairs and festivals! xoxo Ashley


Looks like a great time was had by all! You certainly go all out for your hubby. This was a sweet post.

Just wanted to come on over and wish my dear friend a Happy St. Patrick's Day!! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hi Kim, I've been thinking about you. Just dropping in to see how you're doing. Are you taking a little break from blogging? Any vacations planned? Just want to see how you're doing. Give sweet little Sadie Mae a hug for me.
