I'm just not quite ready for fall... While I love fall, I think I'm in love with summer. Swoony, woozy, honeymoon in love. I love digging my toes deep into white sand and wearing oversized sunglasses. I like soaking up sunshine, grilling dinner, spotting little kids covered in freckles, and running around in airy sun dresses. I like leaving work and finding the outside world still sunny and bright.
Fall is great, but a part of me is still clinging to summer. I'll be sad to see it slip away. I feel like it already is... Yesterday, I awoke to a crisp 67 degrees.
Since, mom and I are the same person (basically), she was feeling the same end o' summer blues. So, we whipped these up at the beach house. Toasted coconut-lime cupcakes topped with coconut clotted cream. Oh. My. Gosh. It kind of tastes like a margarita. A really delicious, Paleo, cupcake meets scone kind of margarita. I preceded to eat four as soon as I'd smothered their tops in cool, creamy clotted cream.
