Back by Popular Demand....

You talked, we listened! We're going to start including captions once again on our photos. It was another fun way to get a behind-the-scenes look into the lives of our contributors and we sorely missed it. And from the feedback we received from our readers, it sounds like you did too! It's going to take a few posts to get all our contributors up to speed, but we hope to be back in full swing by September. Thanks for following along with us everyday and joining in our Around The World Tuesdays link-up. Even though the summer has been a little hectic for the CG Girls, we are committed to this project and to bringing you the snippets of our lives and stories we've all come to enjoy: food, friends, local architecture, things we like to do, our children and families, places we like to visit, etc... We'll strive to make this a fun and inspiring place to visit each morning and we hope you'll continue to spread the word to your family, friends and fellow bloggers about our special little global project.

Thanks a million!

The CG Girls

"Kortland turned 8 on the 22nd of August and we threw an "Outdoor Movie Party" for him. This week, I'd like to share some of the little projects we did for the party. We made popcorn-themed cupcakes in place of the usual birthday cake. We made little popcorn-looking topping by snipping up mini-marshmallows and then spritzing them with a mixture of yellow food coloring and water. They were a lot of work, but the kids loved them!"

  1. Love the first picture on the bike - I hope the damage from the flooding isn't too extensive!

  2. Super fun pictures! : )
    Sometimes descriptions are nice. And sometimes you can use your imagination. Whatever floats your boat, eh.

    Happy Monday!

  3. Yay I like descriptions with photos - nice to know the story behind the pic. That's an awesome popcorn cupcake idea too!

  4. Lola - That popcorn cupcake is so creative!! I bet it was delicious and that Kort was super excited for his fun birthday treat :)

    I'm so excited about the descriptions making their return! I would have never known that these beautiful cupcakes were meant for Kortland's party or that it was Kaishon's first day of school :)
