She texted in the morning and asked if we could have coffee at her place instead, as she was reluctant to go out with the possibility of rain. I had been looking forward to browsing through the nursery myself but to sweeten the deal, she offered to make cupcakes.
My girlfriend is an excellent cook so I did not need much persuading. I was however blown away by her cakes, especially the butterfly cakes with crème fraiche. Yummm! Needless to say, they were delicious and to prove it, I took a photo.
My advice is to cultivate friends who can cook butterfly cupcakes.
All jokes aside, I give thanks for friends who want to have coffee with me and who are fully prepared to set aside time to cook for their cake-deprived pals.

While it sounds as though I am always out drinking coffee with friends, I assure you, it is not as often as we would wish. Friends are precious and it is imperative that we care for and support each other and coffee time, is one way of keeping in touch and showing that we care.
How do you spend time with good friends? I would love to hear from you.
