“Sometimes the most scenic roads in life are the detours you didn’t mean to take.”
~ Angela N. Blount, Once Upon an Ever After
When I first started blogging, on December 11, 2011, I didn’t expect that anyone would read what I might post.
Cauldrons and Cupcakes was an experiment. An online journal in the true sense of the phrase ‘web log’. I’ve kept a journal since I was a small girl, and it seemed a natural extension to then create one using technology rather than a book and pencil.
Every day that I write a new entry, I sit in meditation for a moment, and then in prayer, and then I hold my community in my heart and ask ‘What do my readers most need to know right now? How can I best support them?’ Those simple questions have led to all manner of posts, some of which have taken me by surprise as much it might you.
My blog has evolved into this crazy kind of living memoir. My farm and my doggy family and my cows and my psychicness (LOL – awesome english, Nic!), my philosophy, the inside of my head and all those heapingly tender vulnerabilities, a snippet of my metaphysical and self-development teachings, simple recipes and my journey with lyme disease.
It’s a strange combination, I know. But it’s how I roll. My life is made up of the very ordinary, the ordinary made magical through love and gratitude, and the other kind of ordinary – the things that are commonplace for me as a psychic and channel.
As we edge towards the magical two million views mark, my sister has been constantly asking me if I’m going to have a party to celebrate (I love you, Simone!). And I think I will. A proper one, with cupcakes and gumboot dancing and pots of tea in the garden.
Of course there will also be presents. I’ve decided to put together a little gift pack that represents the themes of my blog. Won’t that be a crazy, joyful combo! And then, of course, I shall give that gift pack away to someone here in my beautiful community, to say Thank You for your love and support. More details on that in the next few days. 🙂
In the meantime, I’d love your feedback. Is there anything you’d like me to write about? Anything you’d like more of? Anything you’re just dying to know?
Because I’m here for you.
Thank you for being part of my life. Thank you for supporting me and my funny little blog.
Nicole <3 xoxo
My first ever selfie, taken in the garden. Later that day I learned to look up at my arm at the phone as I snapped the shot. LOL. My biggest secret? Under that glam coat I am wearing my pyjamas!
