This week went by SO fast, I can hardly believe it's Friday! Earlier this week I had a chance to meet up with the gorgeous Rachel of Vuesociety.com (which is her blog turned into online clothing boutique - check it out, she's got some amazing stuff!) and it is so nice to meet up with other entreprenurial ladies that are going through the exact same things that I am in starting our own business. Everyone just sees the front end of things but the back end of things is truly the hardest part! It was nice sharing our stories and laughing about all the things we had to go through just to get through our store launches and how there are still so many things that we want to change. One of the things that I miss about the corporate world is just being around like-minded people and being able to share and bounce ideas off each other and get feedback about your work. I realize that now that I don't work in a traditional office, I need that more than ever!
We met at Cake Envy a new cupcake shop in Greenlake. I'm a serious cupcake lover and have been to almost every cupcake place in the greater Seattle area and I can honestly say that Cake Envy was one of the best cupcakes I've ever had! I'm not one that loves frosting and I usually shave off at least half of the frosting that most cupcake bakeries put on but they had the lightest most yummiest - like whipped cream - frosting ever. I brought one home to my husband and he agreed. Definitely try it out if you are in the area!
