marshmallow vanilla frosting world in the winter.
It’s the happiest season, the most wonderful time of the year. I love seeing people give, love, be cheery and kind. It seems like this time of year makes being kind a little easier, because the opportunity lurks around every corner. I love it, and if we had snow where I live here in Texas it’d make it EVEN BETTER, because it would make the earth feel like a big layer of vanilla frosting on cake. 😉
The tagline for The Cake Shop is “Spread kindness like buttercream frosting”, which is the whole heart behind The Cake by Hannah. (You can watch this video to learn more about it!) I am particularly passionate about women being kind to each other, cheering one another on in all they are doing.
What would this world look like, how much better would it be, if we didn’t have to worry about what women may be saying about us behind our backs when we walk into a room? What if we lived like it was Christmas ALL YEAR LONG? The spirit of giving and cheer. Perhaps we would all live a little more bold, a little more open, a little more confident… wouldn’t you agree? Love is a fairly simple idea at its core. If the Lord can love me in my sin, my mistakes, and my imperfections, then surely I can love those I come in contact with. EVEN if we disagree on A, B, or C, I love you. We are allowed to disagree. But, we fight for unity in our differences. It’s not easy, but it’s what we can all strive for. If we all became better listeners, what a better world this would be. Slow to speak, quick to hear- so much wisdom in this truth.
I gathered up some of my favorite ladies to do a shoot in The Cake Shop where they got to style their pieces however made them feel the most beautiful. From head to toe, they came to rock their Cake Shop item with their own personal twist, and I just love how different all of us are. Each of these ladies are so beautiful, inside out, and they embody everything The Cake means. They are intentional in all that they do. They are moms, wives, employees, students, hard workers, and so much more. They approach everything they do with grace, kindness, and the best they have to give.
I am lucky to be surrounded by incredible community. From my church, to friends I have had since I was 14, to people I have met through blogging, I fight for positive surroundings. Now with Christmas time, more than ever, I feel like we have the opportunity to spread kindness like buttercream frosting. Let’s make a pact to join forces with other women, cheer one another on, and love one another big. And, let’s carry it on throughout the year.
Here’s to making 2017 a more positive year, a more positive and unifying year.
Let’s compliment each other, buy one another a coffee in line, and think outside our own little worlds.
Who is ready to #LoveLikeCake in everything they do? None of us are going to nail it. But, here’s to trying. Here’s to being part of something bigger than ourselves.
I love y’all. You are strong, powerful women, and I love being in community with you through this crazy internet thing. 😉 Now go out and be a difference maker. Go change your world.
