Another year flew by giving way to a fresh and sparkling 2012, packed with new dreams and new memories. I wish you all a very Happy New Year and may you live every moment with joy, love and lots of laughter.
2011 was a very special year for me. It not only gave me new friends and new dreams but it also gave me two new passions - food and photography! The year gave me so many things to treasure that words can hardly express my feelings.
We reached home yesterday after 2 months long vacation and even though I wished to sleep and get some rest, I could not help but write this post. It's a special day to celebrate! So, join me my friend to wish 'Sunshine & Smile' a very Happy 1st Birthday 🙂 Yes, my blog was born last year on this date. It's hard to believe that one year has passed by and today; Sunshine & Smile is 1 year old.
I started this blog with zero knowledge on blogging. It's embarrassing but the fact is that I didn't even know what a blog was, why people blog and how is it different from a website. Eventually, I discovered the whole new world of blogging and fell in love with it! Blogging is probably one the best things that happened to me.
Without your support, care and love, this blog would not have been where it's today. I feel proud of my baby and I feel proud to be a part of the blogging community. Thank you for your comments, your feedback and your help. Thank you for being with me all the time. Thank you for all the motivation and inspiration. And THANK YOU so much my friend for making my blog shine and smile everyday!
Every celebration calls for something sweet and these cupcakes were perfect for the occasion. After 2 months of long break, it was really exciting for me to get back in the kitchen and bake these cupcakes. It's a very easy recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson's book. They are filled with espresso, coco powder, dark chocolate and decorated with whipped cream.
