It's funny, people's habits with food. I dont consider myself a foodie, but I am most definitely a cupcake connosieur. I can appreciate, however, the power food holds in bringing people together.
When Lindsay Mason (http://www.lindsaymasoncouture.com/) and I were planning to meet up in Denver she decided on the Shoppe (http://www.theshoppedenver.com/). Definitely the best decision for two chocoholics. We indulged on salty caramel cupcakes and I took home this S'more confection for a midnight snack. I cant recommend the Shoppe enough, where you can treat yourself to coffee, hot chocolate, a cereal bar, art by local artists, and vegan cupcakes.
While sweets are quite the indulgence, friendships can be a daily one as well. The people that are brought together over food despite distances apart make for some of the sweetest memories. While I adore a decadent dessert, one thing I have always savored are my friendships. Other than food, fate is the ultimate hand that gently nudges two people together.
How lucky I am to know Lindsay. There's something comforting in chocolatey, moist, cake with frosting, yes. But there is nothing warmer or more comforting than meeting up with a familiar face at a not so familiar place when you are so many miles from home. Thank you Lindsay, for making my trip to Colorado all the more memorable.
