Keep Calm and Grab a Relaxing Cupcake…seriously!

So, if you’ve been following along on social media then you know that I’ve been busy planning this year’s Blog Life University Conference that’s happening in just 2 weeks!! Eekkkkk!!!  I can’t believe how beautifully everything is coming together…it’s a TON of work….a TON of stress….a few freakouts….but it’s going to be one amazing experience.

That’s why I whipped up a batch of my great grandmother’s lavender cupcake recipe.  These cupcakes are just what I needed to relax after a long day of planning, organizing, emailing, fielding questions, and talking with speakers.  I love that these cupcakes are slightly sweet with a hint of calming lavender…its like getting a sweet treat at a luxurious spa!
