All Rainbows?


Yesterday I baked these cupcakes for a good friend’s birthday. Ironically, it is KM’s birthday today so I decided to leave a few for her. I also got her a small gift.
The problem: she doesn’t know that I know it’s her birthday. I thought it would be a nice surprise.
Last night I had doubts about it because DH said that I bake too much and it might seem to someone like I’m trying to seek attention. Is that true??? Regardless of the doubts, I made my delivery anyway. I may have missed her before she left for her clinic, but I know she’ll get it later. I texted her to let her know I left something for her. She replied with a “thank-you, you’re too kind :).”

I can’t help but feeling like I shouldn’t have done this. I know part of this is probably my old habits. I’ve been trying to push it out of my mind, but it’s pervasive an it’s bothersome and I just wish I could go back in time and not do it.

  1. I think if you do something that makes someone happy or brightens their day (even in a small way), there should be no second thoughts about it. Adorable cupcakes by the way!


    1. Thanks! I know you’re right. I’m just spending too much time in my own head right now. It’s not always a good place to be.


  2. Love these cupcakes! Are the clouds made of popcorn?!
    ‘it might seem to someone like I’m trying to seek attention’ is DH’s opinion not KM’s, therefore give cupcakes to whoever you like and I’m sure they’ll appreciate then (although possibly not DH?!), sounds like KM already does. 🙂


    1. The clouds are just buds of icing! I think KM did like them, at least she texted me again later this evening to let me know that was the case…


  3. I think KM will simply think how nice you are. If I received a gift like this from someone I was mentoring, I’d be honoured and delighted. You are letting her know you think she’s a great mentor. There’s nothing at all to read into that, except the truth. No analysis necessary. I’m certain KM won’t be analysing your motives.


  4. It’s always better to follow your heart, you did the right thing. How would you feel if you didn’t do it?

    I’m always willing to accept any baking that you’re not sure what to do with 😉


  5. That was such a nice gesture! That would never make me think that you were seeking attention. That’s just genuinely nice and caring. Be proud 🙂 You’re a good person.


Tell me what you think, I'd like to know...
