Lily and her Daddy the Hero

Originally uploaded by Bake & Destroy!

This blog is sweeter than cupcakes, folks, and that is NOT an expression I use lightly. My brother-in-law Will is back with his family in Germany after an 18-month stint in Baghdad. They’re still stuck overseas until next summer, but at least they’re together and Will is safe.
That’s my three-year-old niece Lily greeting her daddy in the picture. She’s the one who named me Auntie Buttcake. She also coined the phrase “Hi auntie, where’s cupcakes?”
So, welcome home Will! We’re so proud of you and so glad you’re safe and with your family. We love you, thank you for everything.
