Much needed getaway from the daily routine? Check.
Yoga class delinquent? Check.
I skipped my beginner yoga class. Again. Before you start to scold me for being a bad yoga child, see below.
Totally worth missing two out of four weeks of my eight week beginner yoga series? Check.
Beautiful view of the Annapolis harbor? Almost as healing as yoga itself.
Miguel and I wandered around town to take in the sights while visiting his brother, sister-in-law and their brand new baby.
Just my luck, a farmers’ market…
…and a Starbucks in a historic building. So cool. Perfect on this overcast autumn day which was just crisp enough to be comfortable in a light jacket.
We then stumbled upon an arts and crafts show where Miguel purchased his favorite drink as of late (Thai iced tea) and I found my sister the perfect Christmas gift. It’s a shame Miguel broke it after smacking the bag against a parking meter. Thanks again for carrying my bags, babe :).
I may have to re-gift from last year. Or steal from Miguel’s wallet. I’ll sleep on it.
After perusing and purchasing, we walked back down Main St. and spent at least a half hour in a hilarious speciality store. I really would like to post pics of the items I bought, but each person I bought them for reads this blog. Darn them for supporting me and my ramblings! Post shopping, Migs and I stopped to try a goodie at Nostalgia Cupcakes. I am on a serious mission to find a better cupcake than I’ve had at what used to be a local bakery, Susie’s Mixing Bowl. The owner of Susie’s up and left us because her husband (Mr. Susie) relocated for work. I still curse the day her baked goods disappeared from our neighborhood. I wonder if she’d be willing to divorce and return to the east coast. Hmmmm… I’ll sleep on it.
Note: I swear I’m not a horrible person. I just really like good cake. Okay, frosting too.
Back to Nostalgia Cupcakes. Good cupcakes. Not great cupcakes. I’m spoiled.
This is Miguel telling me to take a picture of the cupcake and not him. He thinks my blog friends are sick of seeing his face. I think you all are willing to put up with pics of the Peruvian. He is a partner in my adventures after all!
Wow, I took a lot of pictures of cupcakes. Miguel ordered a key lime cupcake while I ordered the “vegan” cupcake. Apparently “vegan” is a flavor now. I suggest you all demand this flavor at your next bakery stop. Delish. And even the savage carnivore didn’t have a clue it wasn’t stuffed with animal products. Impressive.
Any of my Philly, New York or East Coast friends have any cupcake recommendations? I’m eager to try some new fabulous cupcakeries that will live up to my ridiculously high standards. Boy, does that sound intimidating. Any brave souls? 😉
