Then and Now: Blogging and Magnolia Bakery

Then: It’s been nearly an entire year since I last posted something. And while I feel compelled to acknowledge this, I’ll refrain from expounding upon the reasons (excuses!) why and simply say that I’m back – at least for this post.

Now: Magnolia Bakery has opened in Los Angeles. Only a bakery? Perhaps. But, a fabulous one for sure. While I have been waiting eagerly for the bakery to open, others have been dreading a probable parking crisis in a neighborhood already jam packed with delicious eateries. BTW - We had no problem finding a free spot around the corner on opening day.

To me, Magnolia Bakery is a nostalgic trip back to NYC circa 2001. Living life as a grad student, dating my (now) husband, running all over the city with my girlfriends – the whole bit. I haven’t been to the city in six years, and I do miss it, but thanks to Magnolia, I’m so close, I can taste it – for real. It’s almost like I’m back at that little park on Bleeker scarfing the cupcake down with a bunch of friends, only now I’m enjoying one in Brentwood with my littlest girlfriend.  So sweet!
