Dang! Those strawberry cupcakes look so good! I think they’d be fabulous coming out of the fridge or freezer.

Omg, cupcakes. I prefer Derby Day to Cinco do Mayo but I won’t pass up either!

I am extremely thirsty for those strawberry infused mint juleps and I also need to get on making those strawberry cupcakes of yours. Have fun at teacher training! P.S. I’m a school teacher so with the summer off was planning on going to 3-5 week intensive yoga teacher training. Do you think that would be too much on the body and on the learning part (practically no breaks) or do you find the weekend trainings better? Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
