New Year’s Eve Countdown Cupcakes

I was just telling my mom the other day that I used to hate New Year’s Eve, and now I love it.

These fun, festive Countdown cupcakes would make a fun treat for a New Year's Eve Party!!! Have the kiddos make them while they wait to ring in the new year

It used to mean something totally different.

It used to mean the end of a warm and festive holiday break, and the re-emergence into school. Sometimes, that was an ok thing – probably, mostly – and sometimes, often, it was utterly soul-crushing. Like the end of any good thing that was filled with all the feels. I don’t like missing people. Often, I’ll do anything to avoid it. Yes, there are people I will miss at the end of this break. That hasn’t changed. However, we throw such a fun, foodie party with a big group of friends and we have out-of-town guests. Then January comes, and brings with it new resolutions and inspiration. Then we go to Florida for a week. We will plan new house renovations (phase 2), a potential exotic trip, and just plain shiny newness. I love shiny newness.
