Thank You Thursday (Music Edition)

Posted on January 15, 2015 by Joanna Gaston

What happens when your best friend breaks up with her boyfriend? You bake her cupcakes. There isn't a break-up in this world our cupcakes can't help fix! Check out the fun time The Kind Cake had shooting with Mickey Guyton for her recently debuted video for her first single "Better Than You Left Me". So thankful for the two beauties in this video...they have been the biggest supporters of The Kind Cake. I love y'all.

I believe in serendipity and I believe in things ordained by something that's infinitely bigger than me. Thank God for that.

Thank You Thursday (Throwback Edition)

Pardon me while I cozy up in nostalgia for a minute. I felt compelled on this Thank You Thursday to give a hearty thanks to the parents who raised me, taught me manners, who led by Christian example, who never told me who they voted for even though I asked...every election day. They let me be myself as long as I wasn't hurting anyone's feelings in doing so. They worked tirelessly to provide for me, my brother and sister. They knew the meaning of hard work and instilled that in all of us. They were the champions of magically fixing scraped knees and little broken hearts. Their moral compass impacts not only how I live, but how my brother and sister live and raise their kids as well. Talented, life-loving, beautiful people inside and out and somehow I was assigned to them. Thanks Mom and Dad for being my mom and dad.

There's a lot to be thankful for this week. I'm thankful I was able to pull off a video blog this week for starters. I was so excited that my sweet little cupcakes got to hang with the folks at CMT the other day...how fun! On top of that excitement and the busy baking season, I am so thrilled that I am able to come home and share the new and improved cupcakes with you guys. Come hang out with The Kind Cake on December 20th from 9a-2p at Ballyhoo in Mendenhall and grab some goodness! Hope y'all have a good one.

To the risk takers: THANK YOU. Thanks for being gutsy enough to go against status quo and for paving the way for people like me. People who double dog dare to sprint after their dreams and aspirations in fields where they are undeniably talented, deserve success. Many people will tally others' successes or failures, but regardless of this, it is how the dream chaser treats others in the pursuit of his or her goals that should be highlighted. I love seeing risk takers who don't require a litmus test for every person they meet or already know; they treat everyone the same no matter what. I feel like those are the people who are going to do big things and I am so grateful to be influenced by so many of them, some of whom I know! Thank you so much to all of you who wake up wanting to do something, anything, that will make a difference; the world needs more of that.  

Talented and inspiring risk takers we love.....

Thank You Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving has been a special one. I'd never stop typing if I expressed everything I am thankful for; the list is a never ending one. I was so excited to take a moment and reflect, breathe and enjoy family. They have been so incredibly supportive in this venture; something that I, no matter how strong I feel I am, need on the daily. I always wonder what I did to deserve this family....why was I so blessed to be given the family I have? Was it beginner's luck? I guess these are questions I'll never really have to answer, yet questions I have been fortunate enough to ponder. Over the holidays (and after, of course) I want to try reflecting more on the good rather than focusing on anything that could take away from that. I hope you guys have had a great Thanksgiving and here's to many more reasons for giving thanks in our future.
