Happy birthday to everyone born in July, especially me (July 30th)- but also my awesome friend Sami (the 3rd) & my mom (the 5th)! Cake by Cake Concepts by Lynn
Every week I participate in Military Monday, which is a tribute to our troops. I choose to list names of fallen soldiers as a sort of reminder that there’s a bigger picture we need to look at. And since this site is named Cupcake Rehab, I pair each listing with a photo of beautiful patriotic cakes or cupcakes or pastries or what have you to tie it in with the blog and grab attention. This week I used a birthday cake, since my birthday is coming up, but usually I don’t personalize the photos. It isn’t about me, it’s about these brave men & women.
I encourage everyone to do their own version of Military Monday, be it private or public. You can do it on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr or on your own blog. And until these wars are over, I plan on continuing myself. Please take a look at the archives to view the past 2 years worth of Military Monday’s.
